U.S. Senator Warren calls for federal laws protecting abortion access

Clara Lionel Foundations Diamond Ball

The act places a ban on women in the state from having an abortion after six weeks into their pregnancy with the exception of ectopic pregnancy, and cases where the unborn child has a "lethal anomaly".

Mary Ziegler, a law professor at Florida State University, said the court may shy away from addressing the bitterly divisive issue for the moment.

In a Medium post Thursday, the MA senator and 2020 Democratic presidential contender called on her fellow lawmakers to step up after the Alabama Legislature passed a near-outright ban on abortions earlier this week, paving the way for the country's most extreme regulation in over four decades.

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

Ms Warren said Congress should enact laws that reinforce the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalised abortion.

"Congress should pass new federal laws that protect access to reproductive care from right-wing ideologues in the states", Warren wrote. These men in power are imposing their wills onto the bodies of women in order to uphold the patriarchy and perpetuate the industrial prison complex by preventing women of low economic opportunity the right to choose to not reproduce.

Macy said firefighters secured the scaffold with ropes as it dangled from a crane, 20-30 feet above the roof. The cause of the accident is now under investigation, according to Oklahoma City Fire Capt David Macy.

Warren's abortion rights platform, released Friday by her Democratic presidential campaign, centers on the establishment of "affirmative, statutory rights" that would "block states from interfering in the ability of a health care provider to provide medical care, including abortion services", and set similar restrictions on states' power to block patients from getting medical care, including abortions. "But this isn't a moment to back down - it's time to fight back". More than 70 percent of Americans-including 52 percent of Republicans-do not believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned.

She would also prohibit states from limiting access to the medications that are used to perform abortions.

Elizabeth Warren is calling for Democrats to enshrine the right to abortion in federal statute, repeal the Hyde Amendment, and reverse the Trump administration's domestic gag rule. The typical provision in other states is to allow abortions until 24 weeks or often later.

Dr. Yashica Robinson, who is the medical director of the Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives, said she "will not change my daily routine" when the legislation, which bans the procedure in almost all cases, including rape and incest, starts being enforced in six months.

"This comprehensive, life-affirming legislation prohibits abortions once a heartbeat has been detected, prohibits abortions when a baby is capable of feeling pain, and would outlaw abortion in Missouri upon the reversal of Roe v. Wade".

"We must build a future that protects the right of all women to have children, the right of all women to not have children, and the right to bring children up in a safe and healthy environment", Warren said.
