The case has quickly become a lightening rod for pro-abortion rights activists. One abortion advocacy group which helped raise Jone's $50,000 bail posted, "losing a pregnancy is not a crime."
Alabama recently passed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. Some see Jones' case as a new attack on women. Activists say this is a slippery slope and question if a pregnant woman is seen drinking or not practicing proper prenatal care, will she be arrested. Meanwhile, family members say Jones did not start the fight and losing her baby has been punishment enough.
