"Roe must be challenged, and I am proud that Alabama is leading the way."

The Senate of the State of Alabama has passed the Human Life Protection Act by 25 votes to 6.

Targetting Abortionists, Not Women

Bill HB314 “would make abortion and attempted abortion felony offenses except in cases where abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk to the unborn child's mother. This bill would provide that a woman who receives an abortion will not be held criminally culpable or civilly liable for receiving the abortion.”

The Act, which was introduced by State Rep. Terri Collins and has already passed the House of Representatives by 74 votes to 3, will now go to the Governor to be signed. The bill's passage was mired in controversy when a Democrat representative argued that "some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later."

Unlike similar restrictive abortion bills in the States, the Act does not discriminate against babies born as a result of sexual crime, with senators specifically voting down an exception for rape and incest. However, it does allow for aborting babies with a “lethal anomaly”."Roe must be challenged, and I am proud that Alabama is leading the way."
