Disband the State of Alabama
Alabama has become an archaic state. Women are almost completely helpless in the event of rape AND incest. The legislation, should it pass review by Governor Ivey, -- House Bill 314, "Human Life Protection Act" -- bans all abortions in the state except when "abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk" to the woman, according to the bill's text. It criminalizes the procedure, reclassifying abortion as a Class A felony, punishable by up to 99 years in prison for doctors. Attempted abortions will be reclassified as a Class C penalty. "We will not stand by while politicians endanger the lives of women and doctors for political gain," wrote Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, a senior staff attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union's Reproductive Freedom Project, in an email to CBS News following the vote. "Know this, Governor Ivey: If you sign this dangerous bill into law, we will see you in Court.” (Kate Smith, “Alabama just passed a near total abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest”, May 15, CBS News.)Sign PetitionSign Petition
Let’s make this simple by disbanding the entire state so that the women who live here don’t have to abide by these ridiculous, unconstitutional laws.
