MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov.

The Alabama Legislature on Tuesday gave remaining approval to the nation’s most restrictive abortion legislation within the nation, a measure that makes performing abortion a felony at any stage of being pregnant with nearly no exceptions.
Ivey will now determine whether or not to signal the invoice State senators voted for 25-6. It cleared the Home of Representatives earlier 74-Three.
State Rep. Terri Collins stated the aim is to create a courtroom case to problem the 1973 determination that legalized abortion nationwide.
Sen. Bobby Singleton, who voted towards the invoice, stated the state ought to be ashamed.
