Missouri, latest US state to restrict abortion

"I am appalled that I could get a more severe penalty (up to 99 years in prison) for providing safe abortion care than someone who commits second-degree rape", Robinson said. Now a Republican Delegate in Virginia says that he will fight to win the governor's mansion as well as keep the narrow majority in the state's legislature for the objective of bringing near-total abortion to the state.

"Louisiana is following suit with its own "heartbeat" abortion ban, which was approved unopposed by the Louisiana House Health and Welfare Committee on Wednesday", noted NBC News.

Barry Hovis, who has 30 years experience working with the U.S. police force, reportedly made the comment while discussing his experience handling rape cases.

Doing so, she says, would also reflect public opinion.

Mr Hovis later retracted his comments, to a reporter from the Kansas City Star, saying that he had misspoken and that "there is no such thing as consensual rape".

Warren, the only woman in the bunch of front-runners, has a defined plan to preserve reproductive rights for women, which she unveiled in a Medium post on Friday.

Reaction to the new bill. "Federal laws that will stand no matter what the Supreme Court does".

"Personally, I would have the exceptions", McDaniel said.

"Several members of the court, particularly Justice Roberts, believe in the integrity of the court, and understand that if the court was to overturn Roe it would make it look like a partisan, political entity", he added.

Video from the fire department - taken from the ground - shows the basket swinging at about 8 a.m. Paramedics checked the workers out, CNN affiliate KOCO reported , and they refused treatment.

Warren also pushed for the rejection of limitations on abortion access proposed by President Donald Trump's administration, including a rule that would block certain federally funded clinics from providing counsel regarding abortions as part of the family planning process.

This, he said, would affect women of colour and poor, uneducated or rural women in particular.

"Banning abortion will not stop abortion - it just means that more women will die or be injured trying to access an abortion", wrote Democratic Maryland Rep. David Trone.

However, many are fighting back including the American Civil Liberties Union, who have filed federal lawsuits to contest each state that has passed anti-abortion bills.

"They will be able to travel to California, New York, DC". Electoral powerhouses Florida and Texas are considering following suit.

There are now 23 Democrats vying for their party's presidential nomination in 2020, but Massachusetts Sen.

Democratic California Rep. Katie Porter also asserted that banning abortion will lead to deaths.

"We're going to fight every right-wing lawmaker's attempt to overturn Roe vs Wade", Warren said. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, also a 2020 candidate, said, "This is a war on women, and it is time to fight like hell".

The bills, along with similar proposals now under consideration in more than a dozen other states, are the latest effort by conservatives to challenge Roe v. Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision from 1973, which said a woman has a constitutional right to end a pregnancy until the fetus is developed enough to live outside the uterus.
