Tens of thousands of people on social media are losing it over a picture which shows who voted for Alabama's controversial new ban on abortion.
Overnight, the conservative southern state's Republican governor signed the most stringent abortion legislation in the nation which makes performing an abortion a felony in nearly all cases — including pregnancies arising as a result of rape and incest.
However, as the news broke, US journalist Dan Lavoie pieced together a collection of portraits of those who voted to make the divisive laws a reality.
When the image was circulated on social media, those commenting noticed glaringly obvious similarities between those who were in favour of the crackdown.
They are all male, white and mostly middle-aged or older, or as one outraged Twitter user put it "stale, male, and pale".
"This is 22 pictures of the same dude," commented another.
The passing of the monumental new law has triggered a wave of criticism from women's rights advocates around the world.
But despite the backlash, the bill was sponsored by a woman, and Alabama's female Governor signed the bill saying it was a proud moment for the state.
One sarcastic op-ed in USA Today summed up the sense of outrage towards those who backed it.
"It has become clear that Hillary Clinton isn't the only nasty woman in America who should be locked up," wrote columnist Ricky L. Jones.
"The truth is, many women have been out of control for a long time. Thankfully, the state of Alabama and others are finally doing something about it and putting them back in their rightful place."
In the scathing satirical piece, he wrote that "most women clearly cannot handle that type of independence and power over life and death, much less their own bodies".
However, he made his true intentions clear at the in the op-ed's conclusion, writing: "All that said, if you agree with what you've just read, someone needs to put you in your place!"
WHAT DOES THE LAW ACTUALLY MEAN?
The legislation Alabama senators passed would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony punishable by 10 to 99 years or life in prison for the provider.
The only exception would be when the woman's health is at serious risk. Women seeking or undergoing abortions wouldn't be punished.
Alabama's governor Kay Ivey hailed the passing of the bill as proud moment for the state — but acknowledged that the measure may be unenforceable in the short term.
"To the bill's many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians' deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God," she said in a statement.
Rep. Terri Collins, the bill's sponsor, said she believed the bill reflected the beliefs of the majority of the state electorate.
"I've heard from lots of women in the state who are extremely pro-life and they're very supportive," Ms Collins said.
Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia recently have approved bans on abortion once a foetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy. The Alabama bill goes further by seeking to ban abortion outright.
'IT JUST COMPLETELY DISREGARDS WOMEN'
The bill's sponsors want to give conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court a chance to gut abortion rights nationwide, but Democrats and abortion rights advocates criticised the bill as a slap in the face to women voters.
Hillary Clinton led the charge on Twitter, writing: "None of us should accept a future in which our daughters and granddaughters have fewer rights than we do."
"It just completely disregards women and the value of women and their voice. We have once again silenced women on a very personal issue," said Sen. Linda Coleman-Madison, a Birmingham Democrat.
Coleman-Madison said she hopes the measure awakens a "sleeping giant" of women voters in the state.
Supporters of the bill acknowledged the ban would not be effective anytime soon, because they expected it to be blocked by the courts as they fight upward toward the court.
One mile from the Alabama Statehouse — down the street from the Governor's Mansion — sits Montgomery's only abortion clinic.
Because of its location, the clinic sees a stream of patients from Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle because other clinics have closed.
Clinic staff on Wednesday fielded calls from patients, and potential patients, wrongly worried that abortion was now illegal in the state. They were assured abortion remained legal in the state.
"It's been a lot of fear. A lot of people who are afraid they can't get their procedure," Kari Crowe, a clinic employee, told AP.
