Alabama abortion clinic forced to reassure women it is still open as top Republican admits ban 'goes too far'

Campaigners at an Alabama abortion clinic have been forced to reassure women it is still open following the state’s ban on terminations.The Power House refuge in Montgomery, which is next door to and supports the state capital’s only abortion clinic, has reportedly been flooded with calls from women worried they will not be able to access treatment.Volunteer Bianca Cameron-Schwiesow told NBC News: “They’re asking, ‘Can we still come in? Are you still open?’ They’re in a panic and they’re scared. And we say that is fine, you can still come in because they don’t realise that this is going to stay open for the next six months.”The clinic itself, Reproductive Health Services, also posted on Facebook to tell patients that “we are still open and we’re not going anywhere”.On Thursday Alabama’s Republican governor Kay Ivey signed the ban into law and declared that it proved her constituents’ belief that “every life is a sacred gift from God”.If it survives legal challenges, the measure will block all abortions except in cases where an expectant mother’s life is at risk. Women and girls who have been raped, including by members of their family, will be forced to carry their pregnancies to term.It
