This is the second time this has been reported here, but the first time the law passed it was recalled due to out cry from other members of the Alabama Senate.
Pro-choice activists are up in arms Wednesday morning after the Alabama Senate passed the most restrictive abortion law in the country. The law will outlaw nearly all abortions, with exceptions only to protect the mother's health, in a bill that looks tailor-made to make it all the way to the Supreme Court.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has kept quiet about whether she will sign the bill, but her strong pro-life record would suggest that she will, according to Reuters.
The law, which was passed 25-6, will take effect in six months, but will almost certainly face a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union.
