Alabama Governor Signs Strict Abortion Bill

(Montgomery, AL-AP) — Republican Governor Kay Ivey has now signed a strict abortion law in Alabama that makes nearly all abortions illegal except in cases where the mother’s life is in danger.

The state Senate passed the bill Tuesday night and rejected an amendment that would’ve given exceptions for rape and incest. Meanwhile, the fight over Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill is going to court.

The American Civil Liberties Union and pro-choice groups filed a federal lawsuit yesterday to block the bill that bans abortions after the first fetal heartbeat is detected.
