Prominent Atlanta lawyer will rep anyone prosecuted for abortions for free

Steve Sadow knew a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade was coming. He wants to make sure anyone prosecuted because of an abortion gets the best defense possible, free of charge.

“If a doctor believes that it is appropriate to violate the law, at least as written, I want to be there to defend them because they need somebody in their corner and that is what I do,” he said Friday, hours after the Supreme Court released its opinion.

Sadow, who has represented various high profile clients, said he feels strongly about women’s rights to privacy and their reproductive rights. With laws throughout the country going into effect following the Supreme Court decision, Sadow said he is not sure what each state will do but he will be ready to defend anyone prosecuted as a result of the decision.

“I just wanted to put it out there so that if there is a doctor that feels strongly enough about this, they know that there is somebody that has the experience that I have and is willing to come in and fight for them,” Sadow said. “No one will leave them hanging.”

Although based in Atlanta, Sadow said he is willing to defend any doctor throughout the country free of charge. He will only charge travel expenses if he has to travel long distances. Sadow said he was optimistic about the fact district attorneys throughout the state and country have already stated, regardless of the law, they won’t prosecute anyone for violating abortion laws.
