Rihanna Condemns "Idiot" Lawmakers Behind Alabama's Abortion Ban

Rihanna Condemns

Elizabeth Warren is calling for a series of targeted measures created to safeguard abortion rights following a flurry of new state laws that dramatically restrict women's ability to terminate pregnancies, a move Democrats have decried as a planned effort to chip away at the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. -Sen. Elizabeth WarrenDenouncing extremists for throwing women's rights and the country into a "dark moment", Warren wrote in a Medium post and on Twitter that advocates, especially those in Congress, must fight against the GOP's anti-choice agenda. "Governor Kay Ivey... SHAME ON YOU!" the singer wrote under a caption of their individual photos.

These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is - but they don't care. On May 17, Warren unveiled a multi-part plan Friday morning to protect access to abortion and reproductive health care in the United States, and to protect Roe v. Wade.

Rihanna is speaking out against Alabama's controversial abortion bill. In fact, the law specifies that all penalties fall on the abortionist and a "woman who receives an abortion will not be held criminally culpable or civilly liable". "First, they must prohibit states from interfering in the ability of a health care provider to provide medical care, including abortion services. But this isn't a moment to back down - it's time to fight back". And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play.

Seventy-one percent of Americans, including 52 percent of Republicans, oppose overturning Roe v. Wade.

HOGAN: The outbreak hit poor black and Latino communities the hardest - Central Brooklyn, Upper Manhattan and the South Bronx. The best way to protect against the disease is to get the measles-mumps-rubella shot (MMR) shot.

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.

Warren also wants Congress to enact laws that invalidate state rules that have placed near-impossible regulations on abortion clinics.

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. They intend to argue that a state cannot restrict access to abortion before viability - the point at which a fetus can survive outside the uterus - which is a right that federal courts have repeatedly reaffirmed in decisions since Roe.

This spate of laws has been seen as a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that granted women the constitutional right to abortion. This is about class and race and is a direct attack on the fundamental human rights women in the U.S. deserve and are protected by under Roe vs. Wade.
