From the article:
The Alabama Senate passed a bill Tuesday evening to ban nearly all abortions. The state House had already overwhelmingly approved the legislation. It’s part of a broader anti-abortion strategy to prompt the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider the right to abortion.
It would be one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the United States. The bill would make it a crime for doctors to perform abortions at any stage of a pregnancy, unless a woman’s life is threatened or in case of a lethal fetal anomaly.
The vote was 25-6, with one abstention.
Doctors in the state would face felony jail time up to 99 years if convicted. But a woman would not be held criminally liable for having an abortion.
The point is to force this to go to the Supreme Court, and try to overturn Roe vs Wade, and create a precedent to outlaw abortion in total.
I fucking hate the South right now. There might be good people that live there, but it’s a fucking hellhole for women’s rights, LGBTQ people, and racial inequality.
This is a big deal. This constant unrelenting attack on reproductive rights is exhausting and cruel.
I can guarantee you that women with money, like upper class white women, will not be half as effected. They will just pay the funds to fly to a different state and have it done. (The only moral abortion, being their abortion.)
It will be the poorer women, without the means, that will be stuck. In this case, it will also be the victims of rape and incest.
