Alabama Passes Two Abortion Bills to Severely Restrict Access Statewide

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — In the final hours of the legislative session, the Alabama legislature passed two bills designed to prevent a woman who has decided to get an abortion from actually obtaining one.

If it were to take effect, the bill would decimate abortion access in the state by shuttering two of the five clinics in Alabama which together provide well over half of the abortions in the state. The other bill, SB 363, would ban physicians...
