Georgia bans abortion after six weeks & will punish women who go out of state.
Alabama bans abortion even in the case of rape & will punish women with 99 years in jail.
And Republicans fearmonger about “Shariah Law coming to America”?
It’s obvious they’re the ones bringing it.
Alabama just passed a near-total ban on abortion.
No exceptions for rape or incest.
Doctors could face 99 years in prison for providing abortions.
This is a war on women, and it is time to fight like hell. https://t.co/lhwlbyeQsl
Alabama just passed the most restrictive abortion ban in the country: 99 years in jail for doctor who performs an abortion. No exception for rape and incest. Women will die. This is medieval cruelty and ignorance. We need to do something https://t.co/qQKa0kuUll
Republican lawmakers in states like Louisiana, Alabama, and Missouri are actively working to eliminate women’s access to safe, legal abortion. It’s a direct effort to criminalize women for their health care decisions. This is unacceptable.
Outrageous news coming out of Alabama. This law would effectively ban abortions in the state and criminalize doctors for doing their jobs - providing health care to women. https://t.co/90utkxn7J2
The Alabama Senate just stripped women of health care rights by voting to make abortion procedures a felony. I will fight in solidarity with women to make sure rights guaranteed by Roe v. Wade will not be threatened by those who have no business making laws about their bodies. https://t.co/hS1a2lNEc0
45th in Health Care
50th in Education
45th in Opportunity
45th in Crime and Convictions
38th in worst property crime
8th in worst schools in the US
But please, tell me how you should be in control of women's bodies.
Let’s call what happened tonight in Alabama what it is: Criminalizing doctors and putting women's lives at risk by barring their access to safe, legal abortion.
These fragile insecure cowardly men in Alabama, trying desperately to cling to their fading male privilege by taking the most basic rights away from women, are as shameful as they are pathetic. I can’t wait to see the look on their faces when women finally take over. It’s coming.
The Alabama ban on nearly all abortions—including in cases of rape & incest—w/99 years in prison as punishment, will not save lives
It will embolden abusive men, empower rapists, & cause more pain & death via unsafe abortions
If Gov Ivey has any regard for women she will veto
Remember when trump said "there has to be some form of punishment" for women who get abortions?
Alabama Senate just voted to make trump's "Handmaid's Tale" wish a reality, as abortion procedures would be punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison.
These 25 white men – all Republicans – just voted to ban abortion in Alabama .
This is an horrific assault on women’s- and girls - rights. https://t.co/9AhaucAzih
Even for some ardent (usually male) liberals and humanitarians, the bit in the fascist playbook where they start persecuting & subjugating women is rather hard to properly understand. So thank you, Alabama Republicans, for the crash course.
The Alabama abortion ban is not just about outlawing the health care procedure from the moment of conception, endangering doctors, challenging Roe v. Wade, or policing women’s bodies. The ban will also put a lot more black women in prison than anyone else. https://t.co/rG2rYhIYvL
As someone who has lived in Alabama & who loves Alabama & who just today encouraged people to visit Alabama, I feel it's my duty to donate to @YellowFund
who in partnership w/ @NARAL
raises money to help women access abortion services. Donate at the link. https://t.co/Q6Q3Y6XP2i
A few years ago, when I was nearly killed by a serial rapist, secondarily I feared pregnancy. I missed my 1st period after the rape. I was terrified. In #Alabama, I would not have been able to get an #abortion.
This law is meant solely to punish women. Stop pretending otherwise.
By making all abortion illegal and something that women will be arrested for, Alabama basically ensured women will not get medical care post botched abortion. Deaths will be unknown cause. So no spike in abortion deaths.
1. How many of them had their mistresses have abortions?
2. How many of them get viagra for their broken dicks?
3. How many of them are reacting in a revenge mentality towards the women who turned them down?
These are the men of Alabama abortion bill. White women can fix this.
Very sad day for women in Alabama, I’m sorry I don’t even ever want to drive through that state or have my children or anybody I love near that place!
There is some big black hole where a soul and heart should of been!
Alabama is officially a threat to the lives of women in their state.
I encourage all women to leave Alabama immediately, your life could literally depend on it.
Who will step up and help those who wish to leave?
Use the hashtag #LeaveAlabama and encourage people to leave.
Just a reminder that banning abortion doesn't stop abortion. It stops safe abortions.
Even if you, for some reason, think a 6-week old embryo is a life equal to that of a fully grown adult - laws like those in Alabama or NI do not save lives. They simply kill women as well.
So 25 crusty men have just passed a law to ban abortion in #Alabama, with no exception to rape and incest, in a bid to overturn #RoeVWade. With the #heartbeat law passing in Georgia last week, the USA is fast becoming a dangerous place for women to live. @BBCBreakfast
The men who voted for the new abortion law in Alabama are operating from a deep-rooted fear of women. They hate that they are scared of women and so want to control them. This law may work in the short term. But women will prevail. So stay scared, fuckers
Holy crap, get out of Alabama. It's dangerous for women to be in.
#leavealabama #roevwade #womenarepeopletoo
Alabama Senate passes total abortion ban, punishing providers with up to 99 years in prison https://t.co/lnfXRKyWxF
Let's be clear, Alabama lawmakers just VOTED to KILL women.
Cutting off access to safe & legal abortion means more WOMEN WILL DIE from unsafe procedures or in pregnancy or childbirth.
It is unconstitutional.
It is anti-women.
It is pro-death.
This isn't a women's problem, this is a human rights problem.
Republican men in Alabama have voted to kill women. Because when abortion is banned, women die.#alpolitics are death politics.
This should be blazing across EVERY Democratic Twitter account right now. https://t.co/glQ66bGEoI
So a woman faces jail and her ‘impregnator’ faces nothing, even if an attack on her was itself, illegal. 35 senators in Alabama. Just 4 are women. How long before they decide pregnant women can’t vote? Flat Earth, ‘hopes and prayers’ thinking. Abhorrent. https://t.co/Vkm5js4FoV
just to say: wealthy women will still be able to afford access to a safe abortion, in secret, regardless of a ban. This happens all the time, around the world.
Yes the law in Alabama is an attack on women - but more specifically, it’s an attack on poor and marginalised women.
Alabama’s abortion law is dangerous to women’s health, misogynistic and regressive. But remember that women in Northern Ireland have no access to free, safe, legal abortion. Women (and doctors) are being criminalised here too. #TheNorthisNext https://t.co/Fobc9duZb6 @All4Choice
Of course a room predominantly full of white, middle-aged, privileged men have taken it upon themselves to tell women what to do with their bodies in Alabama.
The US is in full reverse, & with the rise of Farage et al, we're flirting with the gear stick
I can’t say which is more disgusting
That the men who passed this law don’t care if they harm Alabama women in their efforts to repress them
Or their cynicism in expecting a court will toss it so they can appeal,try to reverse Roe v. Wade-and repress ALL women
And people thought #TheHandmaidsTale was fiction 🤷♀️
The faces of 25 white male republicans who voted to ban abortion in Alabama. And THIS is why diversity in leadership matters.
This is a disgusting, dangerous and relentless war against women's rights and bodily autonomy ⛔
WTF? Standing in solidarity with the women in Alabama, and all places where regressive and dangerous laws deny women the right to abortion, basic healthcare some of us can take for granted. https://t.co/K0zIu09RUT
How can it be right the state of Alabama which defends Israel at every turn has zero interest in the freedom of American women demanding the right to have an abortion. BTW Israel law allows abortions. Staggering hypocrisy. https://t.co/hbmc4ItYpZ
Preview of coming events in #Alabama, #Georgia and a state near you.
Ecuador’s Crackdown on #Abortion Is Putting Women in Jail via @thenation https://t.co/jHaO8sklgr
the Alabama abortion bill will be signed into law by a woman, Kay Ivy.
What do we take from this, other than the big stuff of misogyny in politics and religion oppressing the weak and powerless?
Teach women to have compassion for other women. Teach girls to care for girls.
This is getting fucking ridiculous. Victims of rape/incest in Alabama are left without a choice and completely disregarded thanks to their state government who thinks a women’s bodily autonomy is a joke https://t.co/ddKren8wSm
Alabama: “Nothing changes instantaneously: in a gradually heating bathtub you’d be boiled to death before you knew it.” - the continued attacks mounted against women’s rights in the US makes me sick. That’s why we march(ed).
Disgusted by the proposed law change in #Alabama - this is not pro life it’s a blatant attempt to control women. No doubt there won’t be tougher stances on rape or incest. Nor will there be increased funding for education and contraception to prevent unplanned pregnancy
Abortions are still legal in Alabama. There are just three (3) clinics that provide the procedure now. The Yellow Hammer Fund aids women in Alabama who need assistance.
I just donated to Yellow Hammer. Can you spare $5, $10 or more to support the right to an abortion in Alabama? https://t.co/eO2FsZJVKH
Women are 2nd class citizens in Alabama now, if that. Fuck Alabama
