Thousands organize to protest new state laws banning legal abortion access

Alabama abortion

Any case granted review in the coming weeks would be heard in the term that starts in October and be decided in the thick of the 2020 election campaign, when President Donald Trump will be seeking a second term.

The bill out of Alabama - which restricts abortion nearly to the point of a total ban, even for cases of incest and rape - has faced massive bipartisan scrutiny for the last few days. However, this bill that was passed in Alabama, which compares having an abortion to the Holocaust, has given the state the country's strictest anti-abortion restrictions.

From coast to coast, thousands of people across the US will participate in demonstrations Tuesday in protest of the flurry of new laws from state governments that ban legal access to abortion.

Last year, the Trump administration said it would bar clinics that perform abortions from receiving federal family-planning funds by requiring a "bright line" separating clinics that can receive federal funding from organisations that provide abortions or referrals to abortion clinics.

The access of Google Play means that apps will be able to get updates and that users will continue to keep downloading new ones. By now you must have read about the recent blow receive by Huawei - the world's second largest smartphone manufacturer .

Trump sees Democrats taking advantage of that.

The Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973 legalized abortion nationwide by prohibiting states from banning abortions prior to when the fetus is deemed "viable"-that is, potentially able to live outside its mother's womb".

Trump says gains by anti-abortion activists will "rapidly disappear" if, as he put it in a tweet, "we are foolish and do not stay UNITED as one". Restricting abortions is a top policy goal for the conservative and evangelical voters who helped elect Trump, and the president's authority to nominate Supreme Court justices has proven to be a potent political motivator for Republicans. And the party can lose a net of three Senate seats (if they keep the White House) and still maintain control of the chamber in 2021.

"I believe that there ought to be exceptions".

In fact, the Canadians and Mexicans did go along previous year with a revamped regional trade deal that was to Trump's liking. It also signals a cooling of trade tensions between the allies as negotiations between the U.S. and China face uncertainty.

At least Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey was honest about her state's prospects for banning abortion via legislation.

Governors in Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, and Georgia have recently approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can happen in the sixth week of pregnancy - before many women know they're pregnant.

Staci Fox, president of Planned Parenthood Southeast, told the crowd outside the Alabama capitol: "Banning abortion does not stop abortion". The GOP-controlled Legislature refused to add exceptions for incest and rape. While many lauded her for speaking up - "YOU ARE A QUEEN AND I LOVE YOU!"

For anyone who wants to take part, organizers have created an interactive map with the times, locations, and detailed descriptions of each event.
