Hundreds Protest Abortion Bans at Utah Capitol Building

US Vice President Joseph R. Biden speaks during an address at the National Defense University in Washington DC

"And we are looking at you, Brett Kavanaugh", Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen said to hundreds in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Legislative attacks on abortion rights in the U.S. have escalated this year, as social conservatives have shifted tactics with an unprecedented wave of state abortion bans adopted.

"We are very concerned that several USA states have passed laws severely restricting access to safe abortion for women, including by imposing criminal penalties on the women themselves and on abortion service providers", United Nations human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told Reuters Television in Geneva.

"Any time President Trump tells you or anyone else in America that you've gone too far, you've gone too far", England said on the House floor, referencing recent criticisms from President Trump about the bill's lack of exemptions for instances of rape or incest. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY. "If he wants his war, he will have his war, and he will lose". Pointing out that one in four women has had an abortion, actor and talk show host Busy Philipps started the #YouKnowMe campaign to highlight the fact that abortion is a common experience. Like Missouri, Ohio, Mississippi, and Georgia banned them after the time a fetal heartbeat is detected, at about five to eight weeks into the pregnancy.

Astonishing, McCorvey herself appealed against the judgment, and later (according to information on the net), became a member of the anti-abortion movement in 1995 and supported making abortion illegal until her death in 2017.

Abortion would be a "second violent act" to a woman victimized by rape or incest.

"We have the American people on our side", Dr. Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, told ABC News on Tuesday. The conservative majority recently overturned a longstanding precedent in a case not related to abortion, dispelling the illusion that conservative appointees will, out of respect for precedent, continue to regard Roe as settled law.

Hirono spoke at the rally that took place outside the U.S. Supreme Court building, during which she relayed an unusual encounter with a group of Hawaii schoolchildren. Now, with a renewed sense of urgency to safeguard Roe v. Wade in this pitched battle, the 2020 Democratic presidential contenders are charging ahead with abortion policies and restoring mainstream values in the conversation. Several other states have passed laws or are in the process of passing laws to further restrict abortion.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren released a plan for the protection of the abortion rights last week.

Fighting for abortion access is one part of the struggle for reproductive and gender justice, for the right of people to choose when, where or whether to bear children - and also for the right to have the resources to shelter, feed, clothe, educate and nurture their children.

For the moment, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land. "Whatever they cook up - we don't agonize, we organize".

"Hell no, Roe won't go". "No one can be free if our bodies are regulated".

"A coordinated attack requires a coordinated response", Booker said in a statement announcing his proposal. "That's just rolling back on women's rights to control their own body and make their own choices around their own healthcare". He pointed out that the Republicans' attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade could be the start to overturning other landmark decisions.

Pete Buttigieg, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor who also is vying for the 2020 nomination, joined the crowd.

The laws are being passed to strengthen misogyny, white supremacy and hatred of LGBTQ people and people with disabilities. Then, she added, "they passed extreme bans in order to overturn Roe. And of course, push back in court". "To the bill's many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians' deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God".
