Alabama Passes Restrictive Abortion Bill, Without Inclusion Of Exception In Rape Cases

In the United States, the Alabama Senate enforced a revolutionary bill to restrict abortion through the authority can ban the termination of pregnancy and also the doctors who have involvement in the entire procedure, could be punished by being imprisoned for a lifetime. The documentation, which the Republican-led Senate sent to the desk of Governor Kay Ivey for approval of the law, have no inclusion of exceptions in the cases of rape or incest.

According to the bill, executing an abortion is pondered as a crime which could lead doctors who perform these abortions for 10 to 99 years. Abortions would only be licensed if the life of the mother is in danger in any kind of fatal condition.

The biggest human rights defense organization in the United States, the ACLU  pledged to take a legal move for blocking the execution of the restrictive abortion bill, claiming the vote presented “ how little they regard the bodily autonomy ”.

It also added, “this bill punishes victims of rape and incest by further taking away control over their own bodies and forcing them to give birth ”.

It also included, “ with liberal states approving radical late-term and post-birth abortions, Roe must be challenged, and I am proud that Alabama is leading the way”.

The supporters of the bill have directly said that they want to lead the case to the Supreme Court.

Now that the court has a conventional majority in the stirring of President Donald Trump’s election, some Republicans want to reverse the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade governing that recognized women’s right to abortion.

State Senate Democratic leader Bobby Singleton said, “ you just raped the state of Alabama yourself”, after eliminating an alteration attempting to get exceptions to the abortion ban.

He also said, “you’re saying to my daughter you don’t matter in the state of Alabama… It’s ok for men to rape you and you’re gonna have his baby if you get pregnant ”, while his voice choked with emotion.

Several conservative states are measuring harsh anti-abortion laws, expecting some of them to be challenged and reach the Supreme Court.

Influenced by the liberal majorities, the States are seeking a safe alternative to the right of abortion as per their own constitutions.
