PRESS RELEASE

 

BIRMINGHAM, AL – The Alabama Policy Institute applauds the State Legislature for passing the Human Life Protection Act (HB314) late Tuesday night. If signed by Governor Ivey, the law would establish Alabama as the most pro-life state in the United States.

Just last year, the residents of Alabama were offered an opportunity to voice their opinion on the abortion issue via an amendment to the state constitution. The amendment stated that Alabama “recognize[s] and support[s] the importance of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life.” On election day, it passed overwhelmingly. The residents of Alabama had spoken.

Last night, the Legislature took the next step in establishing Alabama as a pro-life state. Under the Human Life Protection Act, induced abortion would be banned in the state, and any doctor found to perform an abortion would be guilty of a Class A felony. The penalty for breaking this law is appropriately severe, as the offense is the elimination of a human life. This bill would end state-sanctioned abortion in our midst and, therefore, Alabama’s participation in the largest genocide of world history.

The Alabama Policy Institute, in our own efforts and through the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition, has supported the ban on abortion since its inception. Today, we applaud the state legislature for standing for life.
