Alabama Senate bans almost all abortions, including rape cases

Female film workers in Georgia urge Hollywood not to boycott over abortion ban

Governors and lawmakers across the country are rushing to pass highly restrictive abortion bills in hopes of attracting the attention of what they see as the most antiabortion U.S. Supreme Court in decades.

Alabama's state Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that would outlaw almost all abortions in the state and make performing one a felony unless the mother's health is at risk.

The move is part of a multistate effort to have the US Supreme Court reconsider a woman's constitutional right to an abortion.

"Human life has rights, and when someone takes those rights, that's when we as government have to step in", said Republican Clyde Chambliss, the Senate sponsor of the abortion ban.

"Second", said French, "the Georgia code section that criminalizes "feticide" (such as when a man attacks a woman for the objective of killing her unborn baby) specifically states that 'nothing in this Code section shall be construed to permit the prosecution of ... any woman with respect to her unborn child'".

Kang rallies to win maiden title in Dallas
That was the middle of three consecutive clinching birdies for Kang, the 31-year-old South Korean who lives in North Texas. Jordan Spieth, a member of Trinity Forest, had a closing 71 and finished tied for 29th at 11 under.


The Alabama bill goes further by seeking to outlaw abortion outright.

"The heart of this bill is to confront a decision that was made by the courts in 1973 that said the baby in a womb is not a person", Republican state Rep. Terri Collins said in April.

The bill passed the House of Representatives 74-3 and the Senate 25-6, LifeNews reported.

Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth, who will preside over the vote and any attempt to amend the bill, posted a video on social media ahead of the debate saying "abortion is murder" and opposing amendments.

The legislation - House Bill 314, "Human Life Protection Act" - bans all abortions in the state except when "abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk" to the woman, according to the bill's text.

Roma 2-0 Juventus: Hosts win to boost Champions League hopes
The side from the capital are now unbeaten in their last seven and lift up to 6th, just one point off the top four. Placed on number six of the Serie A table, Roma needed a victory at this juncture of the tournament.


"You don't have to provide for that child". The Republican-majority chamber adjourned in dramatic fashion when leaders tried to strip a committee amendment that would have added an exception for cases of rape or incest.

Republican Gov. Kay Ivey has not publically said whether she will sign the bill if it's approved by lawmakers. Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia have approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy.

Singleton said doctors who perform abortions could serve more prison time, under the proposed ban, than the women's rapists. "You've got 27 men over on the other side ready to tell women what they can do with their bodies", he said. Ivey has not publicly taken a stance on the bill but has previously aligned herself as anti-abortion, lamenting the courts striking down another Alabama abortion law past year.

The American Civil Liberties Union has vowed to challenge the bill in court.

"The governor intends to withhold comment until it makes its way to her desk for signature, " deputy press secretary Lori Jhons wrote in an email prior to Tuesday night's vote.
