Alabama doctor vows to keep providing abortions when ban goes into effect

18 May 2019

The bill signed into law Wednesday is one of the most restrictive actions taken against abortion in the nation.

"Take a look. these are the idiots making decisions for WOMEN in America", said Rihanna. The rule keeps abortion care out of reach for many low-income and marginalized women who rely on Medicaid and the Indian Health Service for their healthcare. "Governor Kay Ivey... SHAME ON YOU!" the singer wrote under a caption of their individual photos. Elizabeth Warren was among the first to enter the race.

The act places a ban on women in the state from having an abortion after six weeks into their pregnancy with the exception of ectopic pregnancy, and cases where the unborn child has a "lethal anomaly".

All of the state bans have either been blocked by a judge or are headed for the courts, and some of their backers have said they want the issue to go all the way to the nine-member Supreme Court.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat who's running for president, speaks at a campaign town hall at George Mason University on May 16, in Fairfax, Virginia.

"Congress should pass new federal laws that protect access to reproductive care from right-wing ideologues in the states", Warren wrote. But their goal is to get to the supreme court and persuade the justices to overturn Roe v Wade, the landmark ruling guaranteeing the right to an abortion.

Georgia, Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa and North Dakota have enacted laws banning abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat is detected. A new law should go farther to prohibit states from "interfering in the ability of a patient to access medical care, including abortion services, from a provider that offers them". "But this isn't a moment to back down - it's time to fight back". "These are ways that women around the world who don't have access to legal abortions perform their own". A doctor could be charged with a felony and face up to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion in most circumstances.

Democratic California Rep. Katie Porter also asserted that banning abortion will lead to deaths. The Alabama Women's Centre has already confirmed it plans to challenge the bill in court, and even Alabama Governor Kay Ivey admitted it was all but certain to be challenged when signing the legislation.

Other efforts should include expanding access to abortions by repealing the "Hyde Amendment", the provision that prohibits abortion coverage in federally-funded health care programs, and passing the "EACH Woman Act" to remove restrictions imposed by private insurance companies, Warren said.
