ChurchMilitant:The Alabama State Legislature passed by wide margins a law banning nearly all abortion procedures in the state. If Gov. Kay Ivey signs it as anticipated, the law takes effect in six months.
The Human Life Protection Act (HB 314) was passed by the Alabama House last week in a 74-3 vote and passed the Senate on May 14 with a 25-6 vote. The bill makes performing any abortion in the state a Class A felony punishable by 10 years to life in prison. Report is here.
