12 Latinas Taking a Stand Against the Alabama Anti-Abortion Law




On May 15th, Alabama governor Kay Ivey signed into law the most restrictive abortion bill in the country, a near-total ban on the procedure with no exceptions for incest or rape. Under the new law, doctors could face up to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion. Since Trump took office, six other states —  Georgia, Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, and North Dakota — have passed laws banning abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which occurs as early as six weeks. Though it’ll be enforceable in six months, it’s believed that, like the other six states, it may not go into effect. The response to the law has been overwhelmingly negative with women across the U.S. calling it an attack on women’s rights. Here are 12 Latinx who have taken a stand against the law, taking to social media to share their thoughts.
