    As a point of reference, in Alabama a doctor performing an abortion on a rape or incest victim will get a much longer sentence than someone that gets convicted of rape or incest...

    Alabama just passed a near-total abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest

    I'm not an expert on abortion law, but it's hard to imagine how this law, or the Georgia law, aren't running afoul of Roe.

    But, maybe that's the point. They want to undo Roe at the US Sup. Court level.

    Oh: Just saw your post above.

    Just what we need: more welfare cases.

    It’s designed specifically to be as provoking as possible to get ACLU lawsuits and drive it up to the Supreme Court to try and overturn Roe.

    I’m sure you’ll see another state law come out of Miss or Texas here in the next few days as well since this seems to be a party wide tactic.

    Southern states attempting to overturn country wide precedent for sake of their own extreme draconian agenda... never seen that before. Turned out great for the country the last two times prior.

    With science making it more and more possible for babies to survive at earlier dates, history will not look back kindly at the “abortion era”.

    Okay, can I share an idea? What if mandatory Paternity laws were chained to a bill like this?

    Paternity is a child, not a choice. Paternity should mean half a man's income goes to the child for the first 18 years of that child's life, or the man goes to jail, period. The only exception would be if a child was handed over directly to an adoption agency, though he should still have to pay a hefty sum of whatever hospital bills the mother had with the birth. Surely any Christian male, all about responsibility, would support this.

    If a woman has to carry a child to term and turn her life upside down for a fertilized egg, then the fertilizer absolutely should share his half of the responsibility (sometimes, if he forced himself on a woman, more than half the responsibility, but let's not digress).

    Would any man have any legitimate case against that?

    Sad to see even rape or incest victims aren't exempted but that's Alabama for you.

    Alabama is trying really hard to go backward as fast as possible. What a horrible decision.

    You kind of wonder if the root of this is really just simply election strategy more than anything along with the obvious ploy to get cases up to SCOTUS. Move as many blue voters out of red states as they can with scare tactics like this. Consolidate voting power to make sure there are no more Doug Jones'. The Roy Moore's of the south maintain and flex their power, and that power get legitimized at the federal level.

    In the end, its always about power and money it seems. Only thing overturning Roe will do is create a prohibition era for abortions. Cause more deaths, especially in the African American communities in the south with high risk abortions provided in unsafe ways.

    Texas will be the interesting state to watch next. Beto's campaign that really got a ton of lower level seats blue actually could be the difference maker here as much as Greg Abbott would love to sign off on his version of this abortion ban tactic. Texas has nearly the same demographics as California. Just gerrymandered like hell, and with right wing fanatics at the top. Abbott and co. pulling this off with a potential overturn of Roe at the federal level would be a sh#$ show here in TX.

    Congratulations are due to the Alabama Senate. Hopefully, this ends up being signed into law. I would love for Texas to pass a similar law.

    Rich white men can not get behind this, which is your point.

    The usual retort of pro-life meaning and only meaning pro-fetus comes to mind. Once babies are born, they are on their own

    Being forced to not get rid of a one-month-old group of cells because your uncle or father raped you is a terrible thing.
