Michigan Legislature votes to ban abortion procedure

This is a list of celebrities who have opened up about having abortions—because ending the stigma is critical

The bills up for votes Tuesday would prohibit physicians from performing a dilation and evacuation abortion except to save a woman's life. Those who perform abortions would be criminally charged and could face between 10 and 99 years in prison if convicted.

Women's reproductive groups say such "heartbeat bills" effectively ban most abortions outright.

Smitherman countered that rape and incest victims typically are scared to report the crimes and often take months or years to speak about their abuse.

Jamil said the law especially targets lower-income women who are "marginalized, poor or disabled", adding that "the wealthy will have so much more freedom".

Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is expected to veto the legislation, which can not go to her desk until next week at the earliest.

Supporters said the bill is intentionally created to conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationally, because they hope to spark a court case that might prompt the justices to revisit abortion rights.

Democrats didn't have the votes to stop the bill but tried to slow down proceedings during the debate.

"You don't care anything about babies having babies in this state, being raped and incest, " Democratic Senator Bobby Singleton said angrily after the amendment's defeat. Stiller calls the legislation political and an "affront to women's rights".

With a conservative majority on the Supreme Court, Democrats have grown concerned about what might happen if the court takes up an abortion case. The state has lost in federal courts, which have blocked the law, but it is appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court. States like Kentucky and Tennessee are also considering passing a similar bill.

"If I were them, I would be making plans to leave Alabama", Figures said in an interview before the bill was considered.

Similarly restrictive abortion bans in Kentucky and MS already are before the courts, and lawmakers in Alabama are fully aware that judges are likely to intervene. This is, of course, a state where voters endorsed an amendment to the Alabama Constitution in 2018, which reads that the "public policy of this state is to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life".

"So many children will end up in foster homes".
