A Georgia panel wants this Democrat to stop mentioning abortion. He’s fighting back

Former Democratic Rep. John Barrow, who is seeking a seat on the Georgia Supreme Court, has filed a lawsuit asking a federal court to block a state board from sanctioning him for statements he’s made in support of abortion rights during his campaign.

Barrow has made abortion the centerpiece of his bid to unseat conservative Justice Andrew Pinson, who is up for reelection for a six-year term on May 21.

“Now I’m running for the Georgia Supreme Court to protect our personal freedoms,” says Barrow in a recent TV ad, “including the freedom of women to make their own medical decisions like abortion fertility and birth control politicians.”
