Republican Alabama Governor Now Considers Nation's Strictest Abortion Law
According to Reuters, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on Wednesday was mulling whether to sign the United States’ strictest abortion law, part of a multi-state effort to get the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider women’s constitutional right to abortion. The state’s Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that would outlaw nearly all abortions, including in the cases of pregnancies that resulted from rape or incest, allowing exceptions only to protect the mother’s health. The Republican governor is a strong opponent of abortion but has so far withheld comment on whether she would sign the bill. If the Alabama bill goes further, banning abortions at any time, those performing abortions would be committing a felony, punishable by 10 to 99 years in prison.
