And the state's already planning to become a safe destination for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in a post-Roe world.

Bills to restrict abortion rights have also been filed in MA, but they have generally failed to gain traction in the state's Democratic-controlled Legislature. Some states, like Kansas, have faced backlash from state courts that claim a state law like this is unconstitutional.

Heartbeat legislation bans abortions much earlier than allowed by Roe v. Wade's current "viability threshold", all-but ensuring a lawsuit. "And so the time to act is now". On Wednesday, Alabama banned abortions at any time barring the same exception.

Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cut-off.

Missouri's state senate has passed a controversial bill that would outlaw almost all abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy. "These bans will be deadly, endanger pregnant people's lives, and criminalize doctors and health care providers for simply doing their jobs and providing care", says Tarah Demant, the Director of the the Gender, Sexuality and Identity Program at Amnesty International USA.

NARAL Pro-Choice America released a statement after the news broke stating, "The Lt. Governor stated explicitly that this law is created to overturn Roe v. Wade, as they capitalize on securing an anti-choice majority on the Supreme Court". As citizens of this great country, we must always respect the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court even when we disagree with their decisions."Many Americans, myself included, disagreed when Roe v. Wade was handed down in 1973".

It makes M4A look like a back door to using taxpayer money to fund abortions, which ... it is.

The bill, the Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act, would "regulate abortion to the full extent permitted by the Constitution".

Warren calls on reversing the "domestic gag rule" issued by the Trump administration earlier this year. "Most of them were date rapes or consensual rapes, which were all awful, but I sat in court - sat in court - when juries would struggle with those types of situations where it was a 'he-said, she-said, ' and they would find the person not guilty".
