Today’s decision from the Alabama Senate to pass an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest shows how little they regard bodily autonomy. This bill punishes victims of rape and incest by further taking away control over their own bodies and forcing them to give birth.— ACLU of Alabama (@ACLUAlabama) May 15, 2019
BREAKING: Alabama Senate passes a bill to ban nearly all abortions. The only exception is if a mother's life is in jeopardy. The vote was 25-6. It now goes to Governor Kay Ivey for signature. #Alpolitics— Lauren Walsh (@LaurenWalshTV) May 15, 2019
The Alabama Senate has rejected an amendment to the anti-abortion bill that would have allowed for exceptions in cases of rape and incest. The vote on the bill without the amendment is expected later tonight.https://t.co/EEK1z0XooS— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) May 15, 2019

Alabama Republicans’ abortion bill is plainly inhumane.
It should never have been passed.
The Governor should not have signed it into law tonight.
It ought to be swiftly struck down by the courts.

This bill in Alabama is effectively a ban on abortion. This is wrong. This is unconstitutional. https://t.co/dsRWqAY4PW— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) May 15, 2019

Alabama has sent the most restrictive abortion bill in the country to the governor's desk.— CNN International (@cnni) May 15, 2019
It could punish doctors who perform abortions with life in prison, and an amendment to exempt rape and incest victims failed. https://t.co/TF28e7SbNV

Alabama has passed the country’s most restrictive abortion bill. All 25 Senate votes in favor of the ban were from Republican men – but two democratic women put up a fight. https://t.co/C2SI6Luplh— MSNBC (@MSNBC) May 20, 2019
