Abatement of action at common law is the entire overthrow or destruction of the action resulting from the fact that defendant pleads some matter that defeats the action, either for the time being or permanently; any further enforcement of the cause of action necessitates bringing a new action. Jones v. Doe, 143 Ga. App. 451, 238 S.E.2d 555 (1977).
