Alabama abortion bill passes Senate, heads to governor

Alabama is close to approving a near total ban on abortion after the state Senate passed a measure that would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony. Ivey has not said publicly whether or not she will sign the bill, although she is expected to.

Republican Senator Clyde Chambliss, arguing in favor of the Alabama bill, said the whole point was "so that we can go directly to the Supreme Court to challenge Roe versus Wade". A handful of smaller studios have since announced they're refusing to film in Georgia, and far-left actress Alyssa Milano is calling for women to take part in a "sex strike", because "until women have legal control over our own bodies we just can not risk pregnancy".

The Alabama bill goes further, banning abortions at any time.

The high court, now with a majority of conservative justices after Republican President Donald Trump appointed two, could possibly overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision establishing a woman's right to an abortion.

There are no exceptions for rape or incest, which the author, state Rep. Terri Collins, said was intentional in order to give the bill a higher chance of forcing federal court, and eventually Supreme Court challenges. If a physician violates the law and performs an abortion, he or she could have their medical license revoked.

"I'm in awe of people who take in children in need of a family and a home: but if Georgia becomes inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for, it will be hard to find great fostering for them all".

"You don't have to raise that child".

Smitherman countered that rape and incest victims typically are scared to report the crimes and often take months or years to speak about their abuse. "It stops safe and legal abortion".

(b) A person convicted of the offense of criminal abortion shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than ten years.

A similar bill was signed into law in Mississippi.

Supporters of the bills approved 22-16 by the Senate on a party-line vote Tuesday say it would restrict the use of a "barbaric" procedure except to save a woman's life.

"We are already preparing a complaint", said Randall Marshall, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama.

"The governor intends to withhold comment until it makes its way to her desk for signature, " deputy press secretary Lori Jhons wrote in an email prior to Tuesday night's vote.
