Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has just signed into law the strongest pro-life bill in the country, making almost all abortions illegal in the Yellowhammer state.
The law, the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, makes it a felony for doctors to commit abortions. Abortions are only allowed to “avert (a mother’s) death or serious risk of substantial physical impairment of a major bodily function.” The law makes committing an abortion a Class A felony — punishable by up to 99 years in prison — and attempting to commit an abortion a Class C felony.
Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the Legislature,” Gov. Ivey, a Republican, said. “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.”
“To all Alabamians, I assure you that we will continue to follow the rule of law,” she continued.
