The Senate of Alabama passed a law, the abortions in the U.S. state in almost all cases, prohibit and Doctors would punish with up to 99 years in prison. The chamber agreed with a Republican majority for the controversial new rules on how US media unanimously reported. The Republican Governor Kay Ivey, the law is still sign.
After the ban would make Doctors who perform abortions, in the future, a serious Offence. This kind of deeds will be punished in the Federal state with ten to 99 years in prison. According to the law, abortions would be pregnancy after rape or incest is punishable by law. Would be exempt only in cases in which an abortion is necessary "to prevent a serious health risk for the mother of the unborn child". The law would enter the draft, only six months after it was signed by the Governor in force.
However, it is unlikely that the ban will be for the foreseeable future effectively, because it is a judgment of the Supreme Court from 1973 is contrary to the abortions in the whole USA allowed. Goal of abortion opponents is that, ultimately, the Supreme Court engaged with the tightening of abortion laws, such as the Alabama. They hope that the U.S. Supreme court could overturn the verdict from the year 1973. Opponents of abortion rely on the conservative majority in the Supreme Court, the U.S. President Donald Trump by the appointment of two judges has been established.
The house of representatives of Alabama had adopted the law by the end of April. The Washington Post cited the Republican members of Parliament and initiator of the law, Terri Collins, with the words, in the case of the Initiative, the key is to make the judgment of the Supreme Court of 1973, in question. "This is the way how we get where we want in the end." The Democrats in the Senate to criticize the ban as a mixture of the profiling exercise, the attempt to control women, and a waste of taxpayers ' money.
The civil rights movement, the ACLU announced immediately, the law to challenge. The ACLU pointed out that abortions States were still in all 50 U.S. legally. "We will sue to prevent this act shall take effect ever." The same is true for more restrictive laws in other States. Several States have already adopted stricter abortion regulations or are working on it. The law in Alabama would be the most in-depth.
