Alabama Gov. Signs Strictest Abortion Bill Into Law, Setting Up Comparisons To Roe v. Wade Fight In Court
By Fox News // May 15, 2019
ACLU vows to fight the bill
(FOX NEWS) – Republican Gov. Kay Ivey signed the controversial Alabama abortion bill into law on Wednesday.
The law will make nearly all abortions in the state illegal and make performing one a felony, punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison unless the mother’s health is at risk, with no exceptions for women impregnated by rape or incest.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) vowed to sue after the state Senate approved the measure Tuesday night.
On Wednesday evening the group followed up in a tweet: “You can’t say we didn’t warn you, @GovernorKayIvey. See you in court.”
“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,” Ivey said in a statement.
