Alabama Senate Will Vote On Banning Abortion
On Tuesday, Alabama’s state Senate was due to vote on a bill that would outlaw nearly all abortions. It will first consider whether to allow the procedure for women and girls impregnated by rape and incest. If passed, this would be the strictest abortion law in the nation. Reuters reports debate on the bill is set to begin in the Republican-controlled chamber at 4 p.m. CDT. The Alabama bill would be the latest in a procession of anti-abortion bills across the country. Pro-Life activists are hoping the bill will result in the issue going before the U.S. Supreme Court. The bill previously passed the Republican-dominated Alabama House of Representatives. Republican Governor Kay Ivey has withheld comment on whether she would sign it but generally is a strong opponent of abortion.
