Four abortion-related bills move quickly through Alabama Senate committee (al.com)
By Bob Lowry, The Huntsville Times

MONTGOMERY -- A legislative committee today approved four anti-abortion bills that sponsors promised would curb abortions, but opponents labeled them unconstitutional, medically unsound and an intrusion by government into family decisions.

The bills would:

- Require a physician to perform an ultrasound on a woman seeking an abortion, display the images to her and explain them before performing the abortion.

- Limit the use of the "morning after drug" to induce abortions, while requiring physicians to follow strict guidelines in the use of the drug.

- Define "persons" in state law to mean "all humans from the moment of fertilization." The American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama said it would sue the state if that bill becomes law.

- Opt Alabama out of health insurance exchanges under the new federal health law. That would mean the state wouldn't be obligated to pay for abortions.

Want to stop abortions? Fund fact-based sex education and free access to birth control! This is a no-brainer that even no-brain Repugs should understand.

1. Naral Pro Choice America
http://www.naral.org /
(National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League)

I got a petition from Naral last week. I sent a donation and they sent 3 petitions on my behalf to Sen Boxer, Feinstein and Sanchez.

I can't believe what the gov. is trying to do to women.

Wouldn't the state be creating more abortions? :eyes:
