What is happening in Alabama right now needs to happen in every state. A bill has been introduced into the Alabama State Legislature to completely outlaw abortion (http://personhoodalabama.com/2015/08/07/sb26/). The amazing fact is that this bill does not contradict Roe v. Wade.
The majority opinion of Roe v. Wade said that if a law is passed stating that a unborn child is a person than their life is protected by the 14th Amendment (http://personhoodalabama.com/2015/04/10/unconstitutional/).
Alabama already has a Fetal Homicide law that states that an unborn child is a person and that a person is guilty of murder if they kill it. However, the law does have an exemption for abortion. This law defines the word person as meaning “a human being, including an unborn child in utero at any stage of development, regardless of viability.”
According to Roe v. Wade the exemption for abortion is unconstitutional, because the law states that an unborn child is a person.
This new bill (SB 26) that has been introduced in Alabama would remove the abortion exemption; and therefore, would make all abortions illegal in the State of Alabama.
There needs to be a law passed in every state that says that an unborn child is a person at “every stage of development regardless of viability,” just like the Alabama law states. These laws would also need to state that it is murder to kill an unborn child. These laws would be constitutional according to Roe v. Wade.
Some states have tried to pass laws like this, but they have failed. We just have to keep trying. If we don’t give up, someday one will be passed. And when one state does it, the rest will eventually follow and abortion will crumble.
Everyone living in other states please contact your state legislators telling them to pass a law stating that an unborn child is a person at every stage of development regardless of viability, and that according to the majority opinion of Roe v. Wade an unborn child’s life is protected by the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, thus making abortion illegal murder. You can find the contact information for your State legislators at your State’s official website.
If you live in Alabama, please contact the Finance and Taxation General Fund Committee members urging them to support this SB 26. It is feared that this bill will die in committee.
