Alabama is set to pass an anti-abortion law that would give doctors lengthy prison sentences for performing abortions.
The southern US state of Alabama is set to enact a law that would mean jail for doctors performing abortions, even in cases of rape and incest — part of a push by conservatives countrywide to curb family planning services.
Those backing the move say they hope it is challenged all the way to the Supreme Court, forcing a review of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion is unconstitutional.
The measure, approved by the Alabama House of Representatives, sets prison terms of between 10 and 99 years for doctors who perform abortions.
The only exception would be instances where the mother at serious risk or where the child would not survive outside the womb because of some lethal condition.
The measure needs approval by the state’s Republican-controlled senate before it can be signed into law by Republican Governor Kay Ivy.
Hopefully more states begin adopting these laws. Abortion is sick. It’s baby murder and Roe v. Wade which made this disgusting practice legal across the country should be overturned. It’s a tool that they have used to limit the number of White babies that are born.
Undoubtedly, we will see leftist groups file lawsuits to try and get this law overturned but they’ve already gone over the deep end on this issue. They’ve been pushing for and getting Democrats to implement laws legalizing late term abortions and have even started talking about legalizing infanticide.
