A group is hoping to use “chemical endangerment of children” law to give legal rights to fertilized eggs.
This morning women headed to Montgomery, Alabama to protest the forced ultrasound bill making it’s way through the statehouse. Although the bill’s sponsor, Senator Clay Scofield is reportedly backing off the bill that would require trans-vaginal ultrasound prior to a legal abortion, a rally against SB12 is on for today.
Unable to say the word “vaginal,” one of the authors of the forced trans-vaginal ultrasound bill in Alabama says he will pull it. But the women of Alabama won’t stand for replacing it with forced abdominal ultrasounds or any other form of coercion.
A senator pushing for mandatory ultrasounds in Alabama claims his company wouldn’t benefit financially. But is he telling the truth?
The right wants to allow a boss or a corporation to claim “religious” or “conscience” reasons to roll back equal rights. As a native Alabamian, I am hearing some thundering hooves over some bridges at Selma. Religion and “conscience” and employers’ and property owners’ rights were justifications for discriminating against black people in this country from the founding of the republic until the Civil Rights Act was passed. Now they are coming for you.
More states make headway on pushing fertilized eggs as people bills.
The state becomes the fifth to ban abortion prior to viability.
Although the law was passed through the legislature in the very end of the session, the governor is still mulling whether or not to sign it into law.
If the state does get a person to be redefined to moment of fertilization, does that mean corporations will lose their personhood?
Wisconsin library will show the anti-choice documentary, U.S. House committee passes bill preventing pre-tax dollars from being spend on abortion, ACLU sues Alabama prisons, and Virginia governor asks for abortion to be excluded from state insurance exchanges.
