Connecticut state leaders are promising a firewall to protect abortion rights in the state.
State Attorney General William Tong says Connecticut will fight any attempt to pass a national ban.
Abortion is legal under state law, and Connecticut just expanded who can perform the procedure.
"Connecticut will, of course, continue to still be a state where abortion is legal -- for now. But I know the the dynamic in Connecticut has changed," said Peter Wolfgang, Family Institute of Connecticut. 
Connecticut was the first state to legalize abortion back in 1990.
