Alabama’s Near Total Ban on Abortion Drew Mixed Reactions

Alabama passed a law on May 15, 2019 that bans all cases of abortions, except when the mother’s life is at risk.

Under the bill, any doctor or medical staff who attempts to terminate a pregnancy could face 10 to 99 years in prison. It will not penalize the mother, reports Premier.

This legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God. —Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey

State governor, Kay Ivey, said, “this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.”

Pro-life campaigner in the UK, Christian Hacking, lauded Alabama’s move, calling the law ‘fantastic.’ He said, “Behind this legislation are Christian men and women who’ve correctly realized that when it comes to abortion, you’re not dealing with one person, fearfully and wonderfully made, being the mother, you’re actually dealing with two people, fearfully and wonderfully made, the mother and the child growing inside of her womb.”

Hacking commended the American church for realizing its “biblical responsibility to care for those little human beings too because they are our neighbor.”

However, many criticized Alabama’s harsh abortion laws. The day after Gov. Ivey signed the state’s abortion laws, a movement started to boycott Alabama. Officials in Maryland and Colorado wanted an economic retaliation against the southern state, reports Reuters.

“The radical anti-abortion bill signed into law yesterday by the Governor of Alabama is a malicious assault on the rights and protections of women,” said Maryland’s Democratic Comptroller Peter Franchot.

In social media, the hashtag #BoycottAlabama gained momentum, urging people to stop buying products in and from Alabama, including broiler chickens and cars manufactured in the state.
