The bill, known as the Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act, says a non-complying doctor could be charged with a felony and face up to 15 years in prison for performing an abortion in most circumstances.
Warren, the only woman in the bunch of front-runners, has a defined plan to preserve reproductive rights for women, which she unveiled in a Medium post on Friday.
These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is - but they don't care. She would also work to prohibit abortion restrictions on private insurance.
The next president, said Warren, could appoint neutral or pro-abortion rights judges, but Congress can also act to secure access to health care for women by creating federal statutory rights that mimic those given by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. 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. And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play.
She would also prohibit states from limiting access to the medications that are used to perform abortions.Читайте также: Aid call for man on bus escalated to shooting
Seventy-one percent of Americans, including 52 percent of Republicans, oppose overturning Roe v. Wade.
"These kinds of restrictions are medically-unnecessary and exist for only one goal: to functionally eliminate the ability of women to access abortion services", Warren wrote. The Missouri bill has a similar exemption, allowing abortions only in cases of medical emergencies.
Missouri's Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted Friday to ban abortions eight weeks into pregnancy, even in cases of rape, incest or human trafficking.
Earlier this month, Georgia passed similar legislation, banning all abortions after six weeks, following similar laws in MS and Ohio.
The bills, along with similar proposals now under consideration in more than a dozen other states, are the latest effort by conservatives to challenge Roe v. Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision from 1973, which said a woman has a constitutional right to end a pregnancy until the fetus is developed enough to live outside the uterus.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
