Even some pro-life Republicans have joined the backlash over the Alabama law's ban on abortion except when the mother's life is in danger.

"This could me immediate jail time for women and their doctors", she said.

Yvonne Garcia, from the American Civil Liberties Union of OR, told the crowd that the national group has already filed lawsuits challenging recent abortion restrictions in Kentucky and OH and plans to do the same in Georgia and Alabama.

With all the two dozen Democratic White House hopefuls supportive of abortion rights, the debate in the party has centered on how aggressive they should be if the Supreme Court were to eventually overturn legalized abortion nationwide.

If a federal judge does not intervene and the laws are enacted as now planned, Mississippi's law will go into effect on July 1, Alabama's law will go into effect in November and Georgia's will start on January 1, 2020. Numerous other states either attempted or are now debating bills to limit abortions as well. "We applaud those who continue to stand up and speak out for the most innocent among us", said Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family.

"Across the country, we are seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access", organizers said.

"But I was so angry I needed a place to vent", said Sing, who is a member of Indivisible Eastside, which opposes President Donald Trump's policy agendas. Other states, including OH and Georgia, have banned abortions absent a medical emergency after six weeks of pregnancy or after the fetus's heartbeat can be detected, which can occur before a woman even realizes she is pregnant.

Labor conceded defeat even with several seats in the 151-seat House of Representatives too close to call and millions of early votes still to be counted.

They urged the nine justices inside to protect the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade, which enshrined the right to abortion up to the point that the fetus is viable outside the womb, about 24 weeks. The only exception would be when a woman's health is at serious risk.

Joe Biden would support Congress enshrining abortion rights into federal law "should it become necessary", his presidential campaign said Tuesday, following several other Democratic candidates in promising to take that step if elected president.

A representative from the organization Right to Life says they're paying attention to what's happening across the country and showing their support for life on their social media page. And we would be acknowledging that it's a decision that we, as women, are more than capable enough of making on our own.

Eight states so far this year have passed laws severely limiting abortion rights.

For her part, Georgetown University's constitutional law scholar Susan Low Bloch doubts Roe will be overturned, at least in the short term.

"If the court did uphold the Alabama law, then other states would be free to pass similar laws - and might", Cohen said.

The laws now being passed are so "draconian" and "extreme", she said, that she expects the court will easily find them to be unconstitutional. Doctors who perform an abortion could face up to 99 years in jail. They lift restrictions on late-term abortions and require private insurance plans to cover abortion services. She said she had one at age 16, and another at age 27.
