Alabama bill to send abortion doctors to jail sets up Supreme Court fight

Alabama bill to send abortion doctors to jail sets up Supreme Court fight
The Alabama House of Representatives has passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a Class A felony offence. The Human Life Protection Act would mean doctors who perform abortion could face years in prison.

As a Class-A felony, performance of an abortion would carry a potential prison sentence of 10-99 years but, the bill’s supporters noted, would only apply to doctors and not to mothers.  The bill was carried in the House by a margin of 74-3 on April 30. It must now be passed by the state Senate and approved by Gov. Kay Ivy (R).  Click here for more.
