Dem Senate leader on abortion vote: 'It's a sad day in Alabama'

A Democratic Alabama lawmaker called it a sad day for the state after the state Senate approved legislation outlawing abortion, including in cases of rape and incest.

"It's a sad day in Alabama; I feel like crying," state Senate Minority Leader Bobby Singleton (D) said Tuesday.

"But I'm going to hold back my tears, because what you just said to my little girl is that it's OK for a man to rape you, and you've got to have his baby if you get pregnant. You just said to my little girl ... you don't matter in the state of Alabama."

"I've got to go home and tell her, 'the state of Alabama don't care nothing about you, baby,'" Singleton added.
