(CNN) – The Mississippi Law that bans abortions as early as six weeks heads to federal court Tuesday.

Dozens of protesters and abortion rights advocacy groups are taking to the streets nationwide, upset with the recent abortion laws enacted in a number of states including Alabama.

“The legislature has spoken and underscores the sanctity of life that the people of Alabama value so highly,” said Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.

Alabama’s law, which will likely create legal challenges, would virtually make terminating a pregnancy illegal.

On Tuesday more than 50 organizations in almost all 50 states are holding “Stop the Bans” protests.

Supporters of the abortion bill say they’re fighting Roe Vs. Wade. 

President Trump tweeted over the weekend that he opposes abortion with the exceptions of rape, incest and protecting the life of the woman.

“I feel strongly about it and all of that is working its way through court,” said Trump.
