Alabama breaks the mould and bans most abortions
While some states across America are legalizing abortion right up until a baby’s birth, the state of Alabama has gone in the opposite direction.
Today, the Alabama Senate has passed a law that says abortions should not be allowed under any circumstances, apart from at risk to the mother’s life.
The Senate voted 25-6 in favor of the law and was signed into law by Govenor Ms Ivey. The bill would take effect in six months.
The new law would mean that any doctor who supplies and performs an abortion would be punishable with a sentence of between 10 and 99 years in prison. The mother would not be punished.
In a statement announced today, Alabama Governer Kay Ivey took to Twitter to announce, “Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act. To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God.”
Pro-life campaigners are hoping that it will be challenged and taken to the Supreme Court to potentially overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that made abortion a legal right in the US in 1973.
