According to Georgia’s “Heartbeat Bill,” women would not be able to receive abortions after a heartbeat is detected, which can happen after just six weeks into a pregnancy and two weeks after your first missed period. Similarly, in Alabama, unless a woman’s life is at risk, she cannot receive an abortion even if she is a survivor of rape or incest.

Alabama’s Republican-controlled state Senate has passed a near-total ban on abortion, making it a crime to perform the procedure at any stage of pregnancy.

Other recent measures limit abortion in Georgia, Iowa, Ohio, Kentucky, Mississippi, and North Dakota to six weeks of pregnancy, though bans in these states have not yet gone into effect.

On the heels of Alabama’s extreme abortion ban, Republican-led Missouri Senate voted on Thursday morning to ban abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy. The House then voted in favour of the ban on Friday.
