Trump weekend tweets on abortion aimed at toning down debate

Abortion rights activists seated in the Missouri House react after lawmakers approved the sweeping piece of anti-abortion legislation

Sixteen other states are also seeking to impose new restrictions on abortion. The measure includes an exception for cases when the mother's life is at serious risk, but not for cases of rape or incest.Trump asked the Republicans to stay "United" on the issue, otherwise, he added, "all of our hard-fought gains for Life can, and will, rapidly disappear". And I know there's a lot of loud-mouthing, but it's, this is who Alabama elected. Drafted as an assault on Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion across the USA, the law may find itself under view by the nation's highest court.

Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer underscored the concerns among abortion-rights advocates last week when he dissented from a Supreme Court ruling that overturned a 40-year-old precedent involving sovereign immunity.

The Mexico City policy refers to an executive order he signed in January 2017 that bars USA. aid to any organisations overseas that performs abortions or offers information about the procedure.

"The Radical Left, with late term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue", he tweeted late Saturday. Given that, supporters of abortion rights are likely to focus on the more "extreme" proposals that seek to circumscribe Roe, just as critics of Roe - including the folks at LifeNews.com - have often portrayed abortion rights activists as supporting infanticide.

Among the 2020 candidates expected to voice support for abortion rights in the midst of a heated political battle are Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, Vermont Sen. The rule originated in 1984.

Always using his Twitter like a weapon, it's great seeing the veteran novelist come to the defense of Thrones . Adam Bankhurst is a news writer for IGN who loved how Game of Thrones ended and can't stop thinking about it.

Since his campaign, Trump has championed the causes of Christian conservatives, including their opposition to abortion, even though he has not always held that belief. I am angry at the politicians who do not see women as responsible decision makers and therefore believe the care I provide should be outlawed. "Abortion will not go away and this is very unsafe to the lives of women".

Republican-led legislatures in Georgia, Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa and North Dakota have also enacted laws banning abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat is detected. While some Republicans cheered the restrictive state laws, others like House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said the Alabama law goes too far because it doesn't make an exception for victims of rape or incest.

Four states had already passed anti-abortion legislation earlier this year, prior to the draconian ban which was passed in Alabama.

Protestors will gather in Public Square on Tuesday to rally against the "heartbeat" abortion ban signed by Gov. Mike DeWine in April. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Tom Cotton (Ark.) echoed that view.
