Here's What You Need To Know About The Alabama Abortion Law

"These kinds of restrictions are medically-unnecessary and exist for only one objective: to functionally eliminate the ability of women to access abortion services", Warren wrote.

The Missouri House passed a bill on Friday banning abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, making it the latest USA state to pass restrictions on ending a pregnancy.

On Thursday singer and global entrepreneur Rihanna delivered a swift and smooth critique of the 25 white, male, conservative state senators who voted in favor of the bill.

"HISTORY MADE! Missouri Stands with the Unborn Act (Senator Andrew Koenig) passed by the Senate (24-10)", a tweet from the GOP's Missouri Senate account celebrated.

Republican Gov. Mike Parson is expected to sign the bill.

Rihanna has condemned Kay Ivey, governor of Alabama, for approving a bill which bans women from having abortion in the state.

The ban would be among the most restrictive in the U.S. It would include exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Under the law, doctors who performed abortions could face up to 99 years in prison.

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.

Opponents of the legislation, including the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood, have vowed to sue to block the measure if it becomes law. "And because these federal protections would be valid on a variety of constitutional grounds - including equal protection and the commerce clause - they would ensure that choice would remain the law of the land even if the Supreme Court overturns Roe".

The original sponsor of the Alabama law has explicitly said the bill was drafted in an effort to have it challenged and potentially reach the Supreme Court, which the bill's supporters hope could lead to the overturning of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which declared abortion a right federally.

"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.
