Protests Planned Against Restrictive Abortion Laws

By    |   Friday, 17 May 2019 09:59 PM

Women’s and civil rights groups are coordinating nationwide protests of restrictive anti-abortion laws under consideration in several states, The Hill reported.

Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the Women’s March are among the groups set to gather outside statehouses and courthouses on Tuesday.

“Across the country, we are seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access," the groups said on the protest website.

"This is [President] Trump’s anti-choice movement… and it’s terrifying, particularly for women of color and low-income women who are most affected by these bans."

What is considered the nation’s strictest ban was signed into law this week in Alabama, making virtually all abortions illegal unless a mother’s life is at risk.

According to The Hill, 16 states have passed or are considering abortion bans once a fetal heartbeat is detected; four states have approved a  “heartbeat” abortion law.
