Violations by doctors would be punishable by prison sentences, though women who seek out the procedure would not be subject to criminal prosecution.

"Until the day that we no longer have abortions in this country, I will never waver in the fight for life", he said on Wednesday during a rally with supporters of the legislation.

Democrats and abortion rights advocates criticised the Alabama bill as a slap in the face to women voters. On Wednesday, Alabama banned abortions at any time barring the same exception. It needs at least another vote of approval in the GOP-led House before it can go to Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who supports it.

Many women and people with uteruses have since used the hashtag to share their abortion stories. They're about controlling women's sexuality.

In fact, abortion is a highly controversial topic in the world.

Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who's widely viewed to have a tough election coming up in 2020, told CNN's Manu Raju, "The Alabama law is a awful law - it's very extreme - it essentially bans all abortions".

Is abortion an LGBTI issue?

"The statistic is that one in four women will have an abortion before age 45", she said to the camera last week. The root of the dispute is that the U.S. Constitution does not define whether the "fetus belongs to a person".

Lena Headey, who played Cersei Lannister on "Game of Thrones" even posted a screenshot of Philipps' tweet to Instagram, using the hashtag in the comment.

In Alabama, the possible punishment for doctors is 99 years. "You have human life the that is distant from the mother having its own DNA".

In the wake of the bill being passed, Amanda Reyes, president of the group had received many donations - some as big as $15,000.

On May 15 NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt decried how '46 years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled abortion a constitutional right, the state of Alabama has just openly defied that landmark decision.' On the May 16 edition of NBC's Today show correspondent Pete Williams called the Alabama bill a "blunt force attack on Roe v. Wade".

Compared with the politically striking controversy, the public has a certain consensus on abortion.

A polling clerk displays the new aid for voters with impaired vision, at the Marlborough Street National School polling station in Dublin, Ireland on May 25, 2018, during the Irish referendum on liberalizing the abortion law.

Currently, 85 percent of Trump's circuit court nominees are members of the Federalist Society, an ultra-conservative legal network strongly connected to anti-abortion organizations. However, the realistic effect is doubtful.

Dozens of studies have found that limited abortion access coincides with more unwanted pregnancies, more women opting for unsafe illegal abortions, and more women pushed into debt trying to access an out-of-state abortion (or raising a child they hadn't budgeted for). The Guttmacher Institute, which studies reproductive health, found that abortion rates are similar in countries with and without restrictive abortion laws. According to official data released by Ireland, more than 3,000 Irish women were having abortions overseas each year. Even signed, the bill doesn't become law for another six months. And, if so, do the substantive rights include a woman's right to make decisions about her body, including the decision whether to continue her pregnancy? "One of them is MA, where the legislation proposes removing certain obstacles and expanding access", she further assured Holt.
