Alabama state senators debated HB314, the near-total ban on abortion bill, at the State House in Montgomery, Ala., on Tuesday.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Alabama's Senate passed a near-total ban on abortion Tuesday, sending what would be the nation's most stringent abortion law to the state's Republican governor.

The Republican-dominated Alabama Senate voted 25-6 for the bill that would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison. The only exception would be when the woman's health is at serious risk.
