No Red State Left Behind

Alabama wants in on the anti-abortion action. SB503 would “prohibit an abortion for any reason except in an extreme case where the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother” and “provide a penalty for a violation.”

Section 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of Chapter 22 of Title 26, except in an extreme case of medical emergency where the life of the mother is threatened by the pregnancy, any person who causes or participates in the abortion of an unborn child shall be guilty of a Class B felony.

Thanks to Kathy for passing on the info, and Pam’s got more.
