Alabama Senate Passes “Human Life Protection Act” Banning Almost All Abortions

The Alabama State Senate just passed House Bill 314, the “Human Life Protection Act” banning all abortions except when the mother’s life is in jeopardy.

The ACLU is already blasting the bill: “We will not stand by while politicians endanger the lives of women and doctors for political gain.

On Tuesday evening, the Alabama State Senate passed House Bill 314, the “Human Life Protection Act,” which bans all abortions except if the mother’s life is in danger. No exceptions are made for pregnancies caused by rape or incest.

If Republican governor Kay Ivey signs the bill, which passed in a vote of 25 to 6 and had already passed in the Alabama House, it will become law. Before the vote was taken, Alabama Sen. Clyde Chambliss opened the debate by saying, “When is a person a person? When does a life become a life? I believe that if we terminate the life of an unborn child, we are putting ourselves in God’s place.” Proponents of the bill hope to challenge Roe v. Wade with the bill.

The bill states that “a woman who receives an abortion will not be held criminally culpable or civilly liable for receiving the abortion.”
