Rihanna Slams Alabama Governor for Abortion Ban

Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine arrives for the republican policy luncheon on Capitol Hill Tuesday

Warren wrote that Congress should also pass laws preemptively blocking Targeted Regulations on Abortion Providers, also known as TRAP laws, which impose restrictions on abortion clinics to make it impossible to deliver care, and should repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funds from being used for abortion services. Camerota noted that several prominent conservatives have spoken against the law for restricting abortion even for cases of incest and rape, McDaniel tried to pivot in order to blast Democrats for their positions on abortion, and that "there's a wide spectrum and Roe V. Wade has not decided these issues".

"Our democracy should not be held hostage by right-wing courts, and women should not have to hope that Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump's Supreme Court will respect the law", she said.

Ms Warren said Congress should require all health care insurance cover abortions.

Warren added that Congress should go beyond abortion and also ensure access to birth control, comprehensive sex education and care for pregnant women.

These laws, wrote Warren, would "preempt state efforts that functionally limit access to reproductive health care".

NY mayor threatens to fine Trump Organization over pollution
Some Trump supporters joined the protesters who booed and yelled, "You suck!" as the mayor tried to talk over the noise. De Blasio, a Democrat who won a second term as mayor in 2017, has been openly mulling a presidential bid.

A number of 2020 candidates have spoken out against Alabama and other state's assault on abortion rights, but Warren was the first to respond with a plan. Performing an abortion will become a Class A felony - punishable by a life sentence or 10 to 99 years in prison - and attempting to perform an abortion will become a Class C felony, punishable by a prison sentence between one and 10 years.

California Senator Kamala Harris, another Democratic 2020 hopeful, said people needed to fight back to protect Roe vs Wade as it is under attack. She cited a 2018 NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showing that 71 percent of Americans believe the decision should not be overturned, including 52 percent of Republicans.

The Grammy Award-winning singer joined other A-list celebs in pushing back against the legislation, which prevents abortion in almost all cases, including cases of rape and incest. That includes outlawing abortions in cases of incest or rape. Doctors who perform abortions after eight weeks would face up to 15 years in prison.

In that time, it's very possible that the law will be challenged in court. Alabama signed into law on Wednesday the most drastic rollback yet.

Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia also have approved bans on abortion once fetal cardiac activity can be detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy. He also voted to let states overturn Roe v. Wade, although he later reversed position, as the New York Times recently laid out in an article on Biden's evolution on abortion.
