This was Biden's second visit in a week to a historically black college or HBCU as Democrats work to an energized young voters ahead of next month's midterm elections. Stocks finished higher to end the week on Wall Street. This is NPR. From WBE news in Atlanta, good afternoon, I'm Martha Dalton. It's 5 32. Georgia ballots in November include two questions about tax exemptions for farmers and timber producers. Molly Samuel explains what they're about. Form equipment can be super expensive. Hundreds of thousands of dollars So there's been a Georgia law that exempts family farms from having to pay ad valorem tax. That's like property tax on that equipment. But if a couple family farmers were to pool their resources by land or livestock or equipment together. And it became taxable because they were not related. State representative Sam Watson, a Republican from moultrie, is himself a farmer. As long as they did it by themselves, it was tax free. So he introduced legislation that keeps that tax exemption in place for family farms that are working together. That bill passed and the proposal now goes to voters statewide. It's measure B on the ballot. Measure a also stems from a Bill Watson introduced, it extends that same ad valorem tax exemption on equipment to timber producers. Molly Samuel WAB news.

"But we'll have to wait and see. And PR pharmaceuticals correspondent Sydney lupin, thank you. You bet. Four 44, the time now, glad you're along for all things considered on 90.1 W ABE. I'm Jim burris. Abortion rights advocates in Georgia say they'll continue to support patients who seek the procedure. The assertion comes a day after a federal appeals court allowed Georgia's more restrictive 2019 abortion law to stand. It outlaws most of the procedures once cardiac activity is detected in the womb, usually as early as 6 weeks and possibly before people know they're pregnant. Just made or spoke with Alison Kaufman who directs amplified Georgia. That's a coalition of medical providers and reproductive rights groups, Kaufman says there are specific concerns about the laws restrictions. And how it establishes personhood rights for embryos and fetuses. This has a huge potential risk of criminalization. Because if a fertilized embryo is a person, then you start talking about, you know, what happens if someone doesn't wear if a pregnant person doesn't wear a seat belt, you know, is that reckless and dangerment of a child. What if you have a miscarriage and someone suspects that it was intentional or due to some sort of neglect or lack of action? And we've already seen people being criminalized for their pregnancy decisions and a personhood provision like this will open up a wide range of other opportunities for criminalization. There's also a lot of conversation happening about how this affects IVF and vitro fertilization. Since those are fertilized embryos and often many more are fertilized and actually are carried to term. And it could also potentially impact certain forms of birth control that prevent fertilized embryo from embryos from implanting. You know, there's a precedence for this and we have seen it blocked in other courts. But as the U.S. Supreme Court has shown and the Texas court showed before ro was even overturned, that courts are now extreme. So Georgia courts are following in the footsteps of many other courts doing the exact same thing. There's been a lot of concerns since the leaked draft from the Supreme Court first came out about the impact on reproductive healthcare in general, especially pregnancy, complications, and miscarriages. And that's because the treatment is the same in many cases. And so, you know, supporters of Georgia's abortion law push back and say, they don't feel it will have an impact on women's healthcare in general or on miscarriage management in particular because the law does provide an exception for miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. Do you feel like those exceptions will provide a safeguard for people who are experiencing a pregnancy loss or providers who are trying to figure out how to treat their patients? No, we are already seeing a chilling effect. Many providers are grappling with these new laws. And the way that they criminalize the provision of care and what we can expect to see is that a full a wide range of reproductive healthcare provision will be implicated by these laws. As someone who myself has had a miscarriage and has needed miscarriage management, you know, I am I am quite frankly afraid of whether or not my o-b-gyn is going to be able to offer the same level of care and promptness of care that she was able to offer me in that moment. And it has real potential health consequences. Severe bleeding, intense pain, and potential infection when experience and incomplete or otherwise challenging miscarriage. So I think we do need to be talking about the serious health implications that folks will start experiencing denial of this care. Georgia leads the country and maternal death. And it's three times higher for black mamas. And what we know, what the data shows is that abortion bans are going to increase maternal mortality. Quite frankly, this is an issue of life and death. And it's really important that folks start acting accordingly and making sure that we are doing the hard work to reverse this abortion ban and affirm abortion as a right here in Georgia. That was Allison Kaufman speaking with WA V E's just made her. Support
