Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday solicited donations for Planned Parenthood in the wake of Alabama’s state legislature passing one of the nation’s most restrictive abortion measures.

The Alabama bill, which awaits Gov. Kay Ivey’s (R) signature after passing the state senate 25-6 on Tuesday, bans the procedure in all cases except to save the life of the mother, with no exceptions for rape or incest.

The article goes on to state the following:

“That means a child who is raped will be forced to carry that pregnancy by their rapist to term. With a maximum penalty of 99 years in jail, Alabama will officially punish people who seek abortions more harshly than people convicted of rape,” Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign said in an email to supporters Wednesday.

“By jailing women who only seek to exercise their right, Alabama Republicans have taken yet another step towards pushing us back into the past — in their endless quest to return women to second-class citizen status,” she added.
