Alabama governor signs controversial abortion bill into law

The Alabama law, like each so-called "heartbeat" bill, which bans abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, is being challenged in the courts and is not in effect.

On Thursday singer and global entrepreneur Rihanna delivered a swift and smooth critique of the 25 white, male, conservative state senators who voted in favor of the bill.

The Missouri House passed a bill on Friday banning abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, making it the latest USA state to pass restrictions on ending a pregnancy.

126, a bill that would ban abortion after eight weeks Georgia and OH have also passed abortion bans in recent weeks which prohibit women from obtaining abortion care after six weeks of pregnancy-before many women even know they are pregnant. In authoring Roe v. Wade, Justice Harry Blackmun conceded that legally classifying fetuses as "persons" would instantly kill the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 landmark decision and immediately outlaw all abortions. Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cutoff.

Earlier this month, Georgia passed similar legislation, banning all abortions after six weeks, following similar laws in MS and Ohio. The typical provision in other states is to allow abortions until 24 weeks or often later.

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. "First, they must prohibit states from interfering in the ability of a health care provider to provide medical care, including abortion services". They would also prohibit states from "interfering in the ability of a patient to access medical care, including abortion services".

"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. Women who receive abortions would not be criminally penalized. More than 70 percent of Americans-including 52 percent of Republicans-do not believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned.

"We must go beyond abortion, to ensure access to contraception, STI prevention and care, comprehensive sex education, care for pregnant moms, safe home and work environments, adequate wages, and so much more", wrote Warren.

Numerous entertainment personalities rallied against the law as well, People reports.
