Dozens Of Groups Will Participate In Nationwide #StopTheBans Protests
More than 50 organizations are taking part in the protests against multiple new state laws banning abortion.
Dozens of groups will participate in demonstrations across the country Tuesday to protest multiple new state laws banning abortion.
More than 50 organizations are taking part in the #StopTheBans protests, including Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. Protests are scheduled to start at noon local time in almost every state.
The #StopTheBans website says: "We will show up to speak out and fight back against this unconstitutional attempt to gut Roe and punish women."
Last week, Alabama's governor signed a controversial bill that bans abortion at any stage of pregnancy unless the woman's life is at risk or the fetus has a "lethal anomaly."
Georgia's governor signed a bill earlier this month that effectively bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is usually about six weeks into pregnancy.
Several states, including Mississippi and Ohio, also have so-called "heartbeat" laws. And legislatures in other states are considering adopting similar legislation.
