Talk News Sports has learnt that the Alabama Senate has passed a restrictive abortion bill in the United States, which puts a near-total restriction on the termination of pregnancy.
The restrictive abortion bill positions the ban to include cases of rape and incest and doctors who involve in such act may be penalize with life imprisonment.
ACLU, the biggest civil rights defence organisation in America has reacted to the bill and has also vow to take a legal action to block its implementation, saying the vote has just showed how little the lawmakers regard bodily autonomy.

According to ACLU, the bill punishes rape victims as well as incest by taking away more control over their very own bodies and also forcing them to give birth.
Completely dissatisfied with the latest occurance relating to the bill, the National Organization for Women in a similar vein, called the bill “unconstitutional” and said its acceptance would certainly “send out women in the state back to the dark days of policymakers having control over their bodies, health, as well as lives.”
Governor Will Ainsworth, Alabama Lieutenant, who also commands the state senate, welcomed the bill’s passage as a “solid step towards safeguarding the legal rights of the unborn.”
“With liberal states authorizing radical late-term as well as post-birth abortions, Roe must be challenged, and I am proud that Alabama is leading the way,” he concluded.
