"We are in for the fight of our lives, for our patients' lives". This followed the state's senators' passing House Bill 314, another piece of legislation effectively banning abortion in the state.
Even fleeing Georgia to get an abortion in another state could lead to a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.
A nonscientific sampling of students found that not only had all of them heard about the ban, but most anxious about the new law - fearing its effects on classmates, women statewide and their school.
She has pledged to, if elected, nominate Supreme Court justices who are committed to upholding the court's 1973 ruling that afforded a constitutional right to an abortion.
However, Republican state Senators Dave Schatz and Caleb Rowden published a joint statement praising the "life-affirming" legislation. The "total ban on abortion" is being called the worse-of-its-kind and pro-choice groups warn that it is a "blatant effort to overturn Roe v. Wade". Connie Leyva, D-Chino, requires every campus student health center in the California State University and University of California systems to provide medication-assisted abortion services. Kentucky, Ohio and MS have also passed the fetal heartbeat bill, while in North Dakota and Iowa, similar bills have been blocked by the courts.

"There are so many things we could be talking about, nuts and bolts to civil rights issues", he said.
On Wednesday, the Alabama governor signed the bill into law, prompting abortion rights advocates to respond in a range of ways, including with the #youknowme and #youknowus hashtags. Nick Schroer, a Republican representative from O'Fallon is the bill's sponsor.
The Alabama abortion law is now dominating social media with hashtags like, "Boycott Alabama" and "Alabama hates women".
The Guttmacher Institute, which campaigns for reproductive rights, says none of these bans are yet in effect, but their introduction is part of the same strategy to get the cases heard by the Supreme Court, it says.
The bill, which passed on a 24-10 vote, does not allow exceptions for rape or incest victims. "And I defend my pro-life position for my whole political career, but in my whole political career, I also believed in [exemptions for] rape, incest, or life of the mother".
Warren added that Congress should go beyond abortion and also ensure access to birth control, comprehensive sex education and care for pregnant women. It's their right to autonomy and the ability to make decisions.
"This communicates a message to people that they can not have bodily autonomy at a time in their lives where re-establishing control over their bodies is vital to healing the trauma of sexual violence". I would ask them what they're doing about the 443,000 children in foster care on any given day.
