Alabama sent the most restrictive abortion bill in the country to the governor's desk Tuesday night, with the state's Senate passing legislation that could punish doctors who perform abortions with life in prison.
Eric Johnston, head of the Alabama Pro-life Coalition and the drafter of the initial legislation, told CNN that while the amendment to exempt rape and incest victims is "sympathetic" and "deals with very difficult issues," it would upend the law's legal standing.
"Regardless of how the conception takes place, the product is a child, and so we're saying that that unborn child is a person entitled to protection of law," he added. "So if, be it a rape or incest conception, then it would be impossible to ask a judge which of these is protected by law and which is not."
Like we’re fucking pigs out for slaughter. Like we're just fucking sperm vessels for what ever happens to us because we have the ability magically create life and because WE are the bearers of the burden of childbirth WE ARE PUNISHED. GO FUCK YOURSELVES!!!!
So, a father grotesquely rapes his daughter and even though incest is illegal and abominable and unforgivable... that bundle of cells is worth more than the life of a fully grown woman who is and will be forever emotionally and physically scarred. SO this woman now has to carry, maybe have complications with pregnancy, maybe have genetic anomalies because incest, maybe die in childbirth, raise, give up everything in her life, sacrifice opportunities, and look into the face of the man who raped her every day via this now-child because you think that bundle of cells is MORE important than the life and CHOICES of a fully sentient human woman who DOES NOT WANT THIS!!!! Even without those disgusting circumstances the CHOICE of a woman about what she wants to do with her body is the only information you need.
The ONLY silver lining... but not really, but kind of, is...
But in the larger legal landscape, Marshall cast doubt on whether this bill would ever take on Roe, citing how the case would take several years to get to the Supreme Court while several other states have already passed so-called heartbeat bills effectively banning abortion.
"There are already 14 cases nationwide in the pipeline, two of which are currently at the Supreme Court of the United States," he said. "The notion that somehow this is going to be the vehicle for the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade is really misplaced."
