‘To the bill’s supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God.”
Governor Kay Ivey announced in a tweet with a picture of her signing the Alabama Human Life Protection Act into law.
The quasi-religious tweet is covering the fact of how this new law strips women of their reproductive rights making them seem like breeding machines. This is what happens when church and state are not separated… we get set backwards.
So @GovernorKayIvey, does this mean Alabama is abolishing the death penalty since “every life is precious?” And what about a baby who was conceived from rape? Is that still a “sacred gift from God?”And has anyone taken into account what will happen to these unwanted children after they’re born? Lmk.
First and foremost. It is not just to force a woman to carry her rapists baby and have the consequences of an abortion be penalized greater than the action of rape itself. A women’s body belongs to her. A fetus is part of women’s bodies and it therefore she should have full control of it.
Second. It is not just to force a child to be born in such circumstances. While the idea that “every life is precious” is a beautiful concept of which I do agree, the law ignores the inadvertent effects resulting after the child is born. Forcing women to have these unwanted children may result in an underserving low quality of life for the child from issues such as child abandonment.
