A federal judge in MS on Tuesday heard arguments in a lawsuit challenging the state's new fetal-heartbeart abortion law.
Rep. Terri Collins, the sponsor of the Alabama law, said the objective is to challenge Roe and added that Alabama lawmakers can come back and add exemptions if states regain control of abortion access.

It is unclear if or when the Alabama law will take effect.
She recounted her decision to have an abortion in the past, saying it was a personal decision among her partner, her doctor and herself. It does not, however, penalize the mother. Governors in Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia have approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can happen as early as the sixth week of pregnancy. Georgia became the sixth U.S. state to outlaw abortion after roughly six weeks of gestation.
Mr Trump, a Republican who opposes abortion, has seized on the issue as one likely to fire up his core supporters, although he considers the Alabama ban too restrictive because it does not make exceptions for incest and rape.
