Missouri lawmakers approve bill to ban abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy

"Grateful to Planned Parenthood for continuing to provide essential services in Alabama and elsewhere while helping to fight the state legislative bans on women's human and constitutional rights", the former secretary of state wrote.

Congressional Democrats reacted to Alabama's new ban on abortion by arguing that the bill will effectively kill people.

The plan came in response to recent attacks on women's reproductive rights in Alabama, Georgia and Missouri.

These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is - but they don't care.

The Missouri legislation comes after Alabama's governor signed a bill Wednesday making performing an abortion a felony in almost all cases.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another 2020 candidate, similarly suggested that eliminating abortion will prove deadly.

Echoing a common talking point, New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the law would make abortion punishable with jail time, including "women victimized by rape+incest", while lamenting the lack of "added punishments for rapists". "Federal laws that ensure real access to birth control and abortion care for all women". And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play. The Missouri bill has a similar exemption, allowing abortions only in cases of medical emergencies.

I'll be blunt: It just might work.

She would also prohibit states from limiting access to the medications that are used to perform abortions. Republicans have pushed for the opposite, imposing rules that prohibited government-backed insurance from covering abortion services and trying to limit the ability of private insurers to do so. Women who receive abortions would not be criminally penalized. "No abortions after a heartbeat is detected, no abortions after the baby can feel pain, abortions are outlawed after Roe v. Wade is overturned".

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. "And if we're ever to take the tide back and start putting some of those laws in Virginia, we have to find candidates who can win in blue areas of the state". 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.
