Michigan Senate votes to ban abortion procedure

Michigan Senate votes to ban abortion procedure

In a series of tweets on Monday night, the Good Place actress spoke out against the state's law on Twitter, writing, "This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist".

People who perform abortions would be subject to a felony, punishable by 10 to 99 years in prison, although a woman who receives an abortion would not be held criminally liable. "And now we have Hollywood coming in, saying, 'Listen, we want you to have our values, we'll tell you what you should do and how you should do it in your state.' I don't think they understand civics very well". But she also wants to make sure the law is strong enough to force federal court intervention - something she and others hope will lead to national restrictions on abortion.

Senators rejected an attempt to add an exception for rape and incest.

Laura Stiller of Montgomery protests outside the Alabama State House as the Senate debates an abortion ban.

Sixteen states have passed or are working to pass bans on abortion after a doctor can detect what they call "a fetal heartbeat in the womb", usually at about six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. Republican Gov. Kay Ivey has not said whether she will sign it, and said she was waiting for a final version of the bill.

The text of the bill likens abortion to history's greatest atrocities, including the Holocaust. "It should be that women's choice".

In other words, an abortionist providing an illegal abortion, or a man beating a woman and killing her baby, would be in deep legal trouble for murder; not the woman so-called "self-terminating".

(b) A person convicted of the offense of criminal abortion shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than ten years.

"As this legislation is still making its way through the legislative process, the governor intends to withhold comment until it makes its way to her desk for signature", Ivey spokeswoman Lori Jhons said in a statement. The American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama said a complaint is being drafted to challenge the ban.
