The Alabama Senate passed a law to implode every angry liberal baby-hatin’ cranial melon by criminalizing most abortions in the state.
It MUST be noted that the legislation will only cause criminal charges against abortion providers, not those who undergo the operation.
The Alabama Senate on Tuesday evening passed legislation that bans nearly all abortions in the state, sending the measure to Gov. Kay Ivey’s (R) desk to be signed into law.
Ivey has not said whether she will sign the measure, which passed by a 25-6 margin. It would ban abortions in virtually all instances in Alabama, including for victims of rape and incest, and would only permit the procedure if necessary to save a mother’s life.
Anyone performing an abortion could be punished by 10 to 99 years in prison, but no criminal charges would be filed against a person undergoing the procedure.
The legislation was tabled last week when a shouting match erupted on the Senate floor after an exception for cases of rape and incest was removed from the bill.
The bill’s proponents say they hope the legislation, along with abortion restrictions in other states, will set up a Supreme Court battle that will see the overturning of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that was the first to legalize abortion.
Wow. This is sure to make put liberals’ panties in a bunch. Here are some now:
Alabama. Georgia. Mississippi. Kentucky. Ohio. The assault on on reproductive rights is happening across the country, and we have to step up our fight to stop them. Together.— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) May 15, 2019
We need to focus our attention and our efforts where the attacks start: in the states. Stay tuned.
What Alabama is doing is blatantly unconstitutional and disrespects the fundamental right a woman has to make decisions about her own body.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) May 15, 2019
I say to Gov. Ivey: Veto this cruel bill. Stop the attack on women’s rights. https://t.co/yByOIyJ6XL
Mostly only liberals get that obscure reference, but they think it’s sooper-profound.
Pure chaos playing out across our country right now.— Kristen Clarke (@KristenClarkeJD) May 15, 2019
The Alabama Senate just passed a law that criminalizes doctors and makes abortion illegal. They did so KNOWING this fully violates Roe v Wade because they want to take their chances before Trump judicial appointees. #HB314 https://t.co/bS5GAmzcLH
Um with #HB314 the Alabama senate has said definitively that women cannot be trusted to regulate their own bodies, that a clump of cells is more of a person than a women.— Molly Jong-Fast (@MollyJongFast) May 15, 2019
She’s a writer.
But those who love life and hate death are happy:

This life-affirming bill now heads to the Governor’s desk who is expected to sign it into law. 🎉
And that includes me.
