2020 Democratic Hopefuls Erupt In Outrage Over Bill: ‘Women’s Health Care Is Under Attack And We Will Not Stand For It’

CQ: State Bans On Abortion Revive The Issue's Political Power

Abortion is emerging as a factor in the 2020 elections, putting pressure on endangered Alabama Democratic Sen. Doug Jones as his state pushes the strictest limits in the country and presidential contenders seek to use new state abortion bans to rally their core supporters. Conservative state legislatures around the country have pushed a number of curbs on abortion this year in an effort to turn back the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision guaranteeing a national right to abortion. Alabama has taken the lead in adding restrictions, moving late Tuesday to pass a bill that would essentially ban abortion, with a limited exception for saving the life of the woman. (Raman, 5/15)
