Trump and Romney say Alabama abortion ruling went too far

In a series of tweets shortly before midnight on Saturday, the president wrote that his view is "the same position taken by Ronald Reagan".

More than 50 organizations in nearly all 50 states are holding "Stop the Bans" protests on the same day a federal judge, who struck down Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban previous year, is set to hear arguments about a new law that would ban abortions even sooner. "And that abortion rights are human rights and that's what we want for the state of Alabama".

Trump has repeatedly made his anti-abortion stance a rallying point during his campaigns.

Conservative activists hope to get a Supreme Court decision against the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v Wade that said unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion is unconstitutional.

Blakely, who works in the travel industry, said Alabama's anti-abortion legislation had "produced a whole new set of emotions".

Two other 2020 contenders, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) and Sen.

"When women are in control of their sexuality, it threatens a core element underpinning right-wing ideology: patriarchy", she said. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in an interview with NBC's Meet the Press.

Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation", presidential contender Sen. In 1999, he said: "I'm very pro-choice".

He continued that the "Radical Left, with late term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue". Slightly more than half of Republicans disagree.

"But it is a sacrifice I believe is essential to keep China from continuing to kill our jobs and kill our businesses that employ our people". That measure requires that the woman be given information about the fetus's development and alternatives to abortion and that the woman be offered the opportunity to see the ultrasound.

That tradition ended when Mitch McConnell obstructed the nomination process and stole a Supreme Court seat, when Donald Trump nominated dozens of ideologically extreme judges hand-picked by far-right think tanks, and when Republicans confirmed a Supreme Court Justice who is credibly accused of sexual misconduct. In addition to the Mexico City policy - also known as the "global gag rule" - Trump in 2017 signed into law a bill that gave states permission to withhold federal family planning funds from groups that provide abortion, such as Planned Parenthood.

Alabama's governor said Monday the new abortion ban she recently signed into law reflects the high value residents place on the "sanctity of life", adding she doesn't expect any fallout from the controversial measure on tourism or business recruitment.
