Alabama Passes Pro-Life Bill Ensuring Abortion Will Be ILLEGAL When Roe v Wade Is Overturned
Mar 17, 2017
This Thursday, the Alabama House passed a bill that would protect unborn babies’ right to life in the event that landmark ruling Roe v. Wade is overturned; legislators voted 67-14 in favor of the measure, Alabama Media Group reports.
“We want to make sure that at a state level, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, that the Alabama Constitution cannot be used as a mechanism by which to claim that there is a right to abortion,” said state Rep. Matt Fridy, the legislation’s sponsor. The proposed constitutional amendment says it would be Alabama’s public policy “to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, most importantly the right to life.”
