U.S. anti-abortion groups plot course from state capitals to Supreme Court

U.S. anti-abortion groups plot course from state capitals to Supreme Court

If approved, abortions past eight weeks would be banned in most cases, including rape or incest.

The Missouri bill now goes back to the state House of Representatives, where it originated, for final legislative action.

Georgia, Mississippi, Kentucky and OH have also recently passed laws banning abortion after heartbeat activity is detected.

Legislators who believe in overturning Roe - and limiting access to safe abortions - are a legitimate threat to nationwide abortion access.

The Alabama Senate passed legislation this week that will outlaw abortion and punish women and doctors.

Doctors who perform abortions more than eight weeks into pregnancy would face five to 15 years in prison, the Associated Press reports. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns."Actor and politician Cynthia Nixon said her mother underwent a "harrowing" backstreet abortion before the procedure was made legal, joining thousands who tweeted under #youknowme."In 2010, my wife had a legal abortion after we found out her pregnancy was not viable", she also wrote in the post."We can not and will not go back."British actor and presenter Jameela Jamil said that having an abortion in her youth was the "best decision I have ever made" and predicted that Alabama's law would lead to "chaos"."Hope the people of Alabama who want the abortion ban are up for donating their money and space to the MEGA influx of kids in need of care, coming your way", she wrote".

Missouri now joins Alabama, Georgia, Ohio and Kentucky in the competition to challenge the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision before the anti-abortion Supreme Court that Donald Trump promised and has delivered.

Antiabortion advocates see an opening for implementing new restrictions in the wake of the confirmations of conservatives Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

There's still a ban on abortions at eight weeks, but there's no longer a ban on abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

Known as the ROE Act, the bill would remove the requirement for minors to get parental consent for an abortion.

GOP Rep. Nick Schroer said his legislation is "made to withstand judicial challenges and not cause them". "This is the type of legislation that is created to withstand a challenge and to actually save lives in our state".

Missouri's bill also includes an outright ban on abortions except in cases of medical emergencies, but unlike in Alabama, it would kick in only if Roe vs Wade is overturned. When Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from SCOTUS, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, for one, predicted that abortion would be illegal in 20 states, and soon.

"I believe in exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother, and that's what I've voted on", House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said at a Thursday news conference.

Republican Senate handler Sen. John Milkovich. Once passed, the legislation would head to Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards, who has indicated that he will sign the bill.

"Thanks to decades of conservative, pro-life leadership, Missouri recently hit an all-time low for the number of abortions".

"I was very proud of the fact that when I was in the [state] legislature, Louisiana was rated as the most pro-life of the states in the country", Scalise said.

At the federal level, lawmakers are split on abortion along party lines, with few exceptions. People who have not had abortions but know someone who has and/or support people's right to access them have also been using the #youknowme and #youknowus tags to speak up about reproductive rights.
