Alabama House Advances Nation’s Most Restrictive Abortion Ban

HeadlineMay 02, 2019

Alabama’s House of Representatives has advanced the most restrictive abortion ban in the United States, voting in favor of a bill that would make it a felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison to provide a woman with an abortion—even for survivors of rape and incest. If approved by Alabama’s Senate and signed by Republican Governor Kay Ivey, the abortion ban would be the latest state law challenging the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision.
