'Most rapes are consensual': Missouri the latest U.S. state to restrict abortion

Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine arrives for the republican policy luncheon on Capitol Hill Tuesday

As pro-lifers celebrate Alabama's newly-enacted law to criminalize nearly all abortions, the reaction from Democrat politicians, left-wing personalities, and pro-abortion activists has been decidedly more hostile. A new law should go farther to prohibit states from "interfering in the ability of a patient to access medical care, including abortion services, from a provider that offers them".

Ms Warren said Congress should enact laws that reinforce the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalised abortion. And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play.

Ms Warren said Congress should require all health care insurance cover abortions. Many of these bills are a direct affront to Black women and women of color who lack access to sufficient health care due to income inequality and health care access through full-time employment.

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.

The law prompted calls for travel boycotts and concerns from business leaders that the controversy could put a halt to economic development efforts in the state. Performing an abortion will become a Class A felony - punishable by a life sentence or 10 to 99 years in prison - and attempting to perform an abortion will become a Class C felony, punishable by a prison sentence between one and 10 years.

"When I was a little girl, it was a time when back alley abortions killed people". The typical provision in other states is to allow abortions until 24 weeks or often later. More than 70 percent of Americans-including 52 percent of Republicans-do not believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned. Missouri also passed legislation prohibiting abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy, including in cases of rape, incest and sex trafficing.

Trump escalates trade war with China
China retaliated on Monday with higher tariffs on a revised list of US$60 billion worth of United States products. Barring a collapse of world trade, the worst impact of Trump's economic nationalism may be political.

The only exception in the Alabama law is in cases where the mother's health is at risk. Doctors who perform abortions after eight weeks would face up to 15 years in prison.

She posted their photos and used colourful words to describe them on her social media pages in opposition to the signing and approval of the bill this week.

Earlier this month, Georgia passed similar legislation, banning all abortions after six weeks, following similar laws in MS and Ohio.

In that time, it's very possible that the law will be challenged in court.

The Missouri bill, HB 126, would also change the state's parental notification requirements so that rather than needing written consent from one parent in order for a minor to have an abortion, both parents would need to be notified.
