    Alabama Abortion Ban:

    Some good news!

    Alabama abortion ban: Nation’s strictest abortion bill passes; no rape, incest exceptions

    After several hours of contentious debate, the Alabama Senate on Tuesday night voted 25-6 to pass what many say will be the strictest abortion ban in the nation. The bill makes abortion a felony in Alabama. A similar measure already passed the Republican-controlled House but controversy erupted last week in the Senate after an attempt to add amendments that would allow exceptions for victims of rape or incest. Another attempt to add rape and incest exceptions on Tuesday also failed and led to a filibuster attempt. Proponents of the measure pushed for a “clean bill” without amendments in order to clear the way to a legal fight in the U.S. Supreme Court and a review of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion. The bill now goes to Gov. Kay Ivey, who will decide whether to sign it into law.

    Maybe there will be more goofballs deciding not to have sex until they have control of their own bodies because of this.

    Let's hope!

    Maybe then they'll realise what "control over their own bodies" really means?

    Alabama votes to BAN nearly all abortions including in rape and incest and jail docs for 99 years for performing them

    The US state's governor will make the final call on bringing the law into force

    Yup. They're too stupid. And don't forget, they're stupid.

Not so sure it makes sense to force a woman that conceived due to rape to have to endure a lifetime of continuous rape (though his exercise of control over her life and the life of the child) by that person once they get out of prison. Incest is a very odd situation to start with, but again, the lack of an exception is forcing the victim to continue to be a victim for their entire life.

An abortion in these cases is not far from the exception allowed, risk of serious harm or death to the mother.

    I think this is written to be consistent. If the unborn is a human being, no matter how it was conceived, it should have status under the law.

    Doesn't Roe vs Wade override this though?

    Perhaps not. They haven't banned abortion, just banned abortion after six weeks.
