Several states are now considering an abortion ban similar to one passed by the Texas legislature this past week.
Women in Texas can no longer end their pregnancy after six weeks, with the only exception being a medical emergency.
The law allows people to sue anyone who performs or helps with the procedure.
Top Republicans in Florida, Arkansas and South Dakota confirm they want to follow the same enforcement but likely won't take action until next year.
In addition, the governor of Nebraska says his office will be watching closely.
