Alabama Passes Bill to Outlaw Most State Abortions, Eyes Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Showdown

Should more states try to pass similar bills?

by Axios | 5.1.19

The Republican-dominated Alabama House of Representatives voted 74-3 on Tuesday to pass a bill that would ban nearly all abortions in the state.

Why it matters: Bill co-sponsor state Rep. Terri Collins (R) said she intended to eventually challenge Roe V. Wade in the Supreme Court. Alabama is the latest conservative state to pass a bill designed to restrict abortion measures. If Alabama's bill were to become legal, it would be a felony to perform an abortion on a woman at any stage of her pregnancy.
