Alabama State Senator Introduces Bill To Repeal Abortion Ban

(Montgomery, AL-AP) — An Alabama state senator is pushing a bill that would repeal the abortion ban passed through the state legislature.

Democrat Vivian Figures said she introduced the measure yesterday with the intention that it may help heal wounds that her Republican brothers and sisters have inflicted on the state. Alabama lawmakers have faced backlash from all over the country after passing what’s considered to be the strictest abortion bill in the country last week.

The measure makes performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony unless the mother’s health is in danger.

Alabama Abortion Bill Passes The House

(Montgomery, AL-AP) — A bill that would outlaw nearly all abortions in Alabama is advancing. Yesterday, the House passed a bill to make it a felony for doctors to perform an abortion unless there’s a serious health risk to the mother.

This bill doesn’t allow abortion in the case of incest or rape, and some lawmakers who support it say they’re expecting a fight. Their goal is to get this before the Supreme Court forcing them to revisit Roe versus Wade.

The bill now moves to the Senate.
