This morning, the Alabama Senate passed a bill that bans abortion at every stage of pregnancy, even if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. While women won't be criminally charged if they get an abortion, any doctor who performs an abortion could be charged with multiple felonies and face up to 99 years in prison—effectively banning the procedure.

This draconian policy is only the latest in a recent spate of anti-abortion bills sweeping red state legislatures.

Last Tuesday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, before a woman usually knows she's even pregnant.

In April, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed a nearly identical piece of legislation into law. So did Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, in March. At least four other states are in the process of considering similar six-week abortion bans.

It might be easy for Oregonians to brush aside these faraway laws, dumping them into a mental box labeled "other states' problems" shared with Roy Moore and anti-LGBT "bathroom bills." You only have so much political rage to spare, we get it.

But, unlike Kim Davis, this isn't something that's going away. Not only do these recent anti-abortion bills directly impact the health of hundreds of thousands of Americans living in red states, but they are working to swiftly erase the country's few abortion protections.

These new anti-abortion bills weren't penned to be quietly signed into state law—and end there. No, the red state lawmakers intentionally drafted these bills to kick off a national legal battle over reproductive rights.

With a newly conservative majority on the US Supreme Court, far-right state legislators believe that when their anti-abortion laws are inevitably challenged by civil rights lawyers (which is already happening), the highest court in the country might actually rule in their favor. It's not an unrealistic bet.

If things go according to their plan, the resulting Supreme Court ruling could effectively overturn Roe v. Wade, the federal decision affirming a women's right to a legal abortion. A rewind on Roe would leave abortion restrictions up to individual state legislatures—meaning the kind of reproductive policing we're seeing in states like Alabama and Georgia will turn into all-out abortion bans.

Don't worry: Oregon's pro-choice legislature will likely keep abortion access easy and affordable for Oregonians with a reproductive system. And the state's already planning to become a safe destination for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in a post-Roe world. But the erasure of any women's reproductive rights—Oregonian or not—hurts us all.

Dozens of studies have found that limited abortion access coincides with more unwanted pregnancies, more women opting for dangerous illegal abortions, and more women pushed into debt trying to access an out-of-state abortion (or raising a child they hadn't budgeted for). Without Roe, these sobering outcomes—which predominantly impact women of color—are only expected to grow.

We don't have to worry about this alternate reality—yet. What we should worry about is that right now, women in a rapidly increasing number of states are being told that one of the most personal decisions about their bodies isn't theirs to make. Instead, old white men in suits are regurgitating baseless, insulting reasons to take away a woman's constitutional right to an abortion.

So, what can you do to help?

We suggest getting to know the reproductive rights organizations and abortion funds in states currently threatened by abortion bans. Share their work, thank their staff, and if you're able, donate. Here are a few we trust:

Mississippi: Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund, Jackson Women's Health Organization

Ohio: Women Have Options, NARAL Ohio , Preterm

Georgia: Feminist Women's Health Center

Alabama:Yellowhammer Fund, the Montgomery Area Reproductive Justice Coalition

Southeast US: Access Reproductive Care Southeast

National: Sister Song, National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum, National Network of Abortion Funds, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, and Planned Parenthood
