WATCH: Elizabeth Warren has this to say about abortions
The Alabama Senate has passed a huge pro-life bill– H.B. 314–, which virtually bans all abortions. If signed by the governor, it would be known as the strictest abortion law in the country.
It passed in the Senate by a significant margin– 25-6. The bill essentially establishes “personhood” to unborn babies and implements strict punishments for those who perform unlawful abortions.
Alabama’s state Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that would outlaw nearly all abortions in the state and make performing one a felony unless the mother’s health is at risk.
The bill will make the punishment for performing abortions up to 99 years or life in prison, although the woman who received one will not be subject to a felony charge.
Republican Gov. Kay Ivey hasn’t said if she’ll sign the bill into law.
The left is experiencing a collective meltdown.
Basic health care includes safe, legal abortion. Alabama’s backdoor abortion ban is an unconstitutional attack on women—an attack happening all across America. Let’s be very clear: We’re going to fight this ban and defend #RoeVWade. And we’ll win. pic.twitter.com/gTOO2scCad

BREAKING: Alabama's legislature just passed a law that criminalizes doctors and makes abortion illegal.
Abortion is NOT a crime — it's a constitutional right.
We will sue to stop this law from ever taking effect.

The Alabama legislature is ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing women.
Instead, the government's role should be to make sure all women have access to comprehensive affordable care, and that includes safe and legal abortion.https://t.co/pU0rKy0fED

Ignoring science? Party of “clump of lifeless cells” says WHAT?
