House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., blasted Alabama’s new abortion law, calling it “heartbreaking” and part of an “anti-woman agenda.”

Pelosi’s comments came a day after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican, signed legislation making performing an abortion a felony in nearly all cases.

Pelosi posted three separate tweets about the new law on Thursday morning. She said: “Alabama’s new law is heartbreaking. Imprisoning doctors and punishing women over access to vital, legal medical care is a staggering violation of both basic morality and constitutional rights.

“Every woman has the right to basic reproductive health care – yet Republicans have trampled over a long-standing constitutional right in their haste to push a radical anti-woman agenda.

“This clear and intentional violation of the Constitution directly imperils the health of countless women, and cannot be allowed to stand.”

In a Wednesday tweet, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. called the Alabama law “inhumane” and said it should be “struck down by the courts.”
