The new law has been described as the nation’s most restrictive abortion legislation under the Alabama Human Life Protection Act.

Passed on Wednesday, May 15, the law includes a ban on abortion in cases of rape or incest and a possible life imprisonment sentence for doctors who perform abortions. The bill has been highly criticized by people in the U.S. however their complaint has since gone unheard. Alabama’s 35-seat Senate is dominated by men, and none of its four female senators backed the ban.

Rihanna’s post which has gained over a million likes and 40,000 comments in a matter of 3 hours has gotten people talking about the new abortion ban and has led other famous people to add their voice against the new law.
