Abortion activists plan to gather across the nation today to protest state laws that protect unborn babies from abortion.
The protests are a response to Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Missouri and other states that are trying to protect unborn babies by banning or restricting abortions after an unborn babys heartbeat is detectable.
They also are drawing attention away from other states like New York and Vermont, which recently passed radical abortion laws legalizing the killing of unborn babies for basically any reason up to birth.
Behind the Stop the Bans protests are some of the most powerful, well-funded abortion groups in the country: Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, NARAL and the Womens March, The Hill reports. They are demanding unrestricted abortions up to birth and taxpayer funded abortions.
Across the country, we are seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access, the groups said in a statement.
This is Trumps anti-choice movement and its terrifying, particularly for women of color and low-income women who are most affected by these bans, they continued.
Altogether, about 50 abortion advocacy groups are participating in the protests, WSAV News reports. Abortion activists are encouraged to meet at noon today outside statehouses and courthouses across the country. There are protests in every state, including in Nashville, Detroit, Jackson, Memphis and Savannah.
We will show up to speak out and fight back against this unconstitutional attempt to gut Roe and punish women, the groups said, News 5 Cleveland reports. None of the pro-life laws or bills punish women for having abortions.
Politicians shouldnt be making decisions best left to women, their families, and their doctors, they continued though these same groups are fighting to overturn laws so that nurses and midwives also may do abortions.
The National Right to Life Committee said these abortion activists are the true extremists. A new Hill-HarrisX survey found that a majority of Americans support heartbeat laws, such as the ones passed in Ohio and Georgia, and Gallup polls consistently show that Americans think most abortions should be illegal.
We bet you are frustrated. You are frustrated with the extreme pro-abortion agenda that seems to be taking over our country, NRLC wrote on Twitter.
While abortion activists likely will succeed in blocking all of the pro-life laws in court, the pro-abortion laws in New York and Vermont are in effect allowing unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth.
Pro-life advocates hope for an eventual victory at the U.S. Supreme Court, but, for now, Roe v. Wade stands, preventing states from passing even moderate protections for babies in the womb.

If you can please show up and counter protest! Support life and watch the freak show.
Forecast in Missouri is heavy rain with flooding.
There is nothing free
Someone gets paid
Bills get paid
Leases get paid
Gads, they really have a fixation on infanticide.
That is sick!
Good....protest....that’ll bring out more pro-life folks.
Perhaps it is time for civil war 2.
I am willing to abort them now.
Baby killers gotta kill dem babies.
FReepers I found the website of the pro choice people who are organizing this!
Just go there and figure out which cities they are having this and if it’s in your city you can go counter protest!!
It really is quite a simple proposition:
Should it be lawful to stop a healthy, growing, beating heart?
Pro-choicers want the the focus to be on women’s rights. At the moment of conception, isn’t any woman now a mother?
Why is motherhood inferior?
Should it be lawful for a mother to stop being so at any time, for any reason?
Free peoples have rights, but not powers.
“Why is motherhood inferior?”
To them it’s “forced birth” or “forcing them to give birth”.
I’m thinking about the evil on the left combined with your statement about heavy rain and flooding. Kind of reminds me of a story about a God that was unhappy with his people. Read that somewhere... hmmm.... think there was big boat with animals on it.
Fortunately, the average (brain dead) Democrat doesnt support this degree of murder.
....and its terrifying, particularly for women of color...
This is one excuse for abortion that we hear over and over. Have you thought about how racist that statement is? Why would the pro-abort idiots want to keep women of color from having babies? “gotta keep those darkies from breeding you know.” It implies also that those “women of color” are not smart enough to learn how to use birth control. What if it were conservatives who are calling for more access to abortion for women of color? Think about that. Actually the abortion clinics do seem to spring up near the neighborhoods of color according to stats I’ve seen.
When will they propose terminating the aged without their consent?
Oh, just you wait...it’s coming.
What a bunch of ghouls.
I would posit that we are already there. It’s simply well hidden.
