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

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel added herself to the list of conservatives objecting to Alabama's new law nearly completely banning abortion. "Second, they must prohibit states from interfering in the ability of a patient to access medical care, including abortion services, from a provider that offers them".

All of this boils down to Roe v Wade, a decision made by the US Supreme Court in 1973, ruling state laws that banned abortions were unconstitutional.

Next, Warren said Congress should require that all health care insurance cover abortions.

Gostin said what he sees happening instead is the continued trend of conservative states restricting access to abortion. In fact, the law specifies that all penalties fall on the abortionist and a "woman who receives an abortion will not be held criminally culpable or civilly liable".

The law prompted calls for travel boycotts and concerns from business leaders that the controversy could put a halt to economic development efforts in the state. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, also a 2020 candidate, said, "This is a war on women, and it is time to fight like hell".

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.

Similar to the Alabama Human Life Protection Act singed into law on Wednesday, the Missouri Stands With the Unborn Act has an exemption for the life of the mother but not in cases of rape or incest.

Seventy-one percent of Americans, including 52 percent of Republicans, oppose overturning Roe v. Wade.

A number of 2020 candidates have spoken out against Alabama and other state's assault on abortion rights, but Warren was the first to respond with a plan. A doctor could be charged with a felony and face up to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion in most circumstances.

The Grammy Award-winning singer joined other A-list celebs in pushing back against the legislation, which prevents abortion in almost all cases, including cases of rape and incest.

She also condemned Alabama's female governor for signing the law into effect.

Lawrence Gostin, a law professor at Georgetown University, also said he believed the Supreme Court was in no hurry to take up the subject.

Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia also have approved bans on abortion once fetal cardiac activity can be detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy.

The Missouri bill, HB 126, would also change the state's parental notification requirements so that rather than needing written consent from one parent in order for a minor to have an abortion, both parents would need to be notified.
