New Alabama Law Pushes Back Against Roe Visions
By Norman McRobotface
ALABAMA—In the wake of the Alabama Supreme Court’s recent decision to uphold the state’s constitutional amendment to allow abortion for any reason, lawmakers across the state welcomed Tuesday the fact that the Alabama law giving women the right to choose has been preempted by federal law. “This decision is a victory for those who believe our nation should be a place where women have full access to abortion,” said state senator and recent college graduate Steven Williams, adding that the Reconstruction-era statute, which prohibits women from being forced to undergo an abortion in the event of a rape or incest, was a wise and necessary step in protecting Alabama from any future such laws. “This is a great day for Alabama. We’re a state that believes in equality, and we’ve got to protect that equality by keeping abortion legal for all women everywhere.” At press time, lawmakers were still attempting to figure out how to get the state’s abortion clinics open.
