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

Here's What You Need To Know About The Alabama Abortion Law

The issue of abortion has been thrust into the national dialogue in recent weeks after a series of states controlled by Republicans began passing legislation to enact hard line bans.

It also includes a so-called "trigger" function, meaning that if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court, abortion will automatically become illegal in Missouri.

"Our democracy should not be held hostage by right-wing courts, and women should not have to hope that Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump's Supreme Court will respect the law", she said. On May 17, Warren unveiled a multi-part plan Friday morning to protect access to abortion and reproductive health care in the United States, and to protect Roe v. Wade. These men in power are imposing their wills onto the bodies of women in order to uphold the patriarchy and perpetuate the industrial prison complex by preventing women of low economic opportunity the right to choose to not reproduce.

"Just as I have for the last 15 years of my medical career, I will continue to deliver babies, give prenatal care - and provide abortions", Robinson wrote in a CNN op-epd.

The rights would "prohibit states from interfering in the ability of a health care provider to provide medical care, including abortion services", she wrote.

These laws, wrote Warren, would "preempt state efforts that functionally limit access to reproductive health care".


Elizabeth Warren is calling for Democrats to enshrine the right to abortion in federal statute, repeal the Hyde Amendment, and reverse the Trump administration's domestic gag rule. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, also a 2020 candidate, said, "This is a war on women, and it is time to fight like hell". She cited a 2018 NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showing that 71 percent of Americans believe the decision should not be overturned, including 52 percent of Republicans. Neither the Alabama law nor the proposed Missouri bill have exemptions for instances of rape or incest, meaning that if the laws go into effect, abortions will not be allowed in those cases as well as any other pregnancies.

Doctors who conduct abortion outside the confines of this act may also be sentenced to life imprisonment.

"I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the Legislature", Ivey said.

Earlier this month, Georgia passed similar legislation, banning all abortions after six weeks, following similar laws in MS and Ohio.

"This comprehensive, life-affirming legislation prohibits abortions once a heartbeat has been detected, prohibits abortions when a baby is capable of feeling pain, and would outlaw abortion in Missouri upon the reversal of Roe v. Wade".
