Alabama House Passes Pro-Life Bill Saying There Is No Right To Abortion

Alabama lawmakers are preparing for the day when Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Abortion will not become illegal immediately when Roe is overturned; instead, the power to legislate abortion will return to the states.

On Thursday, the Alabama House passed a bill that would protect unborn babies’ right to life in the event that Roe is overturned; legislators voted 67-14 in favor of the measure, Alabama Media Group reports.

The Associated Press reports the bill would amend the state constitution to declare Alabama a “right to life” state. If the bill passes the state Senate, the amendment also would have to be approved by voters on the 2018 ballot.
