It may have taken hours of debate, but one state’s legislation just voted to pass legislation that could have monumental effects on the United States as a whole.
The Alabama State Senate has voted 25-6 to pass what is being considered the strictest stance against abortion in the country.
It will now head to Governor Kay Ivey, who pro-choice advocates are already threatening to take to court should she sign the bill.
“We are laser-focused on urging Gov. Kay Ivey to veto this dangerous bill. If she chooses not to, then we will take this to court and ensure that abortion remains safe and legal and accessible in the state of Alabama,” Staci Fox, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeast said.
While Ivey has not personally commented on the bill, Republicans expect that she will, in fact sign it into law.
