Hundreds gather at abortion rights rally in SLO

Numerous restrictions are meant to draw legal challenges, which religious conservatives hope will lead the nation's top court to overturn a 1973 decision that established a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy. They have seen the potential for change with the Supreme Court appointments of Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch and aimed farther.

Travis Weber, vice president for policy at the Family Research Council, who signed the letter, said he sees momentum for more restrictive abortion laws.

Thousands of women have taken to streets across America to protest against anti-abortion laws which have been passed in several states. "I think a lot of people did", she said.

"People are screaming at the women as they come in", she said.

In the 2016 election, an estimated 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton-a number that surprised many, but shouldn't have.

Dr. Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement that "any ban on access to safe, legal abortion risks women's lives, and is an attack on our fundamental human rights".

Best Chance in Decades at Overturning Roe v Wade? One of the reasons for her cause was that men were domineering over their wives.

Georgia and Alabama's recently signed abortion bans are horrifying in their specific, deliberate goal of criminalizing and jailing women for the crime of seeking health care.

"The difference is entirely strategic", Ziegler said.

Asked by The Associated Press whether Biden believed the high court decision should be codified in law, the campaign initially pointed to the video, then later added that the former vice-president would support legislation "should it become necessary". Doctors who perform the procedure could face up to 99 years behind bars. Alabama banned all abortions except for in instances where a woman's life is at stake.

Governors in Georgia, Mississippi, Kentucky and OH also recently approved bills to criminalize abortion once doctors detect a fetal heartbeat, which can be as early as six weeks before many women know they're pregnant. But supporters of the Alabama ban said the right to life of the fetus transcended other rights, an idea they would like tested at the Supreme Court. Such laws, he said, are nearly certainly intended "to force their way onto the docket of the Supreme Court". For her part, Haddad has noticed she's been "more self-aware" recently, especially since anti-abortion protesters at George's capital were carrying guns. U.S. Reps. Eric Swalwell of California, Tim Ryan of Ohio, Seth Moulton of MA and former Rep. O'Rourke are all presidential hopefuls who were co-sponsors in the House of a similar measure to repeal Hyde. And we would be acknowledging that it's a decision that we, as women, are more than capable enough of making on our own.

Rosenblum was a law school student when Roe passed in 1973. This week, Gov. John Bel Edwards said he'd sign a "heartbeat" ban in Louisiana should it pass the state legislature. The CBC's Lyndsay Duncombe looks at how that fight is playing out south of the border. They say attorneys would need to present a strong enough case, judges may be hesitant about taking them and they may have trouble finding an unbiased jury.

Cohen said he can't foresee both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh facially overruling Roe.

That could affect the Supreme Court justices. Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri and OH are among the other states to pass new abortion restrictions. She would have welcomed Alabama's new law as a way to try to undo the damage of Roe.

Other attendees said they came to the protest with future generations in mind. A recent Marist Poll found that three out of four Americans prefer strict abortion restrictions. One Alabama clinic got a call from someone asking "will they get locked up, will they be charged of a crime" if they got an abortion.

"That is not chipping away", she said.
