Alabama Senate passes bill banning nearly all abortions

The Alabama Senate on Tuesday passed a legislation that bans nearly all abortions in the state. The measure now moves to Gov. Kay Ivey’s desk to be signed into law. The law would ban abortions in virtually all instances in Alabama, including for victims of rape and incest, and would only permit the procedure if necessary to save a mother’s life.

My opinion is, that abortions should be avoided whenever they can. It should not come to the point where you need to have an abortion, because you weren't clever enough to use one or multiple usable birthcontrol methods. However the option to have an abortion, should still exist, in all the cases of rape, incest, underage pregnancies and cases of diagnosed mental and, or medical risk. But only up to the point where the child can survive outside of the womb. A independent panel of medical professionals could easily set a point in time where this is possible. As far as I know children after the 22nd week have a really good chance to survive. Only cases where the child can still be aborted after this timeframe is when the mothers mental or physical wellbeing is at risk. But those have to be disgnosed if possible. After this around 20 week timespan the child has to be aborted through a ceasar section + the lethal injection of a saline solution to stop the childs Heart anyways, the same method a child would be delivered by after this point in time. Here in Germany a woman is required by law to seek a counselor who has to inform the woman about the abortion methods but also the support the state, therapists and family and friends can give her if she chooses to keep the child, before a abortion can take place. Which i believe to be a good Idea. If anyone knows any more specifics about when the child can survive outside the womb or what abortion methods are used after the child has reached this point please reply.

I’m not a fan of abortions at all, but even I think victims of rape and perpetrators of incest should be allowed to receive them.

This is how it should have been decided in the first place, let every state decide how strict or free it wants to be with the murder of the unborn. If New York and California want to introduce bills allowing abortion up to, and according to some politicians beyond, the point of birth, That is their right. Roe v Wade never needed to be legislated by 5 unelected lawyers.
