Monday, during a wide-ranging interview with Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "Mobile Mornings," U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) voiced his approval of the U.S. Supreme Court's Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decision.
The Alabama Attorney General’s (AG) office has stated that emergency contraceptives, commonly called “morning-after pills,” are not covered in the state’s recent abortion ban.
“I cannot communicate how excited I am about the possibility of correcting the tragedy of Roe v. Wade, and restoring the sanctity of life," said Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl. "It gives me hope in the ideals of individual liberty and protecting the rights of every person from the moment of conception to the grave.”
Since assuming congressional office in 1997, U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) has been consistent in making the pro-life agenda a priority.
It’s worth noting that it is extraordinarily unusual for any governmental entity to willingly yield power. The majority of the Court admitted that they wrongly took away power from the people and their legislators and gave it back. Admittedly, it took fifty years and the lives of 63 million innocents before it was returned; we should take note of that as well.
Pro-life and pro-choice advocates in the state are giving their reactions to Friday’s historic decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).
This does not mean that abortion is now illegal in America. The Supreme Court simply no longer considers it a right that cannot be touched by lawmakers.
“Because neither the United States Constitution nor the Alabama Constitution provides a right to abortion, Alabama laws that prohibit abortion and that have not been enjoined by a court are in full effect," said Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall (R). "For those laws that have been halted by courts, the State will immediately file motions to dissolve those injunctions. Any abortionist or abortion clinic operating in the State of Alabama in violation of Alabama law should immediately cease and desist operations.”
U.S. Reps. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover), Barry Moore (R-Enterprise), Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) joined 122 of their U.S. House Republican colleagues urging U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate attacks on pro-life centers and other religious organizations.
Earlier this month, U.S. hopeful Katie Britt's record as Student Government Association president at the University of Alabama was raised by her opponents for her failure to veto an SGA Senate resolution that called for the campus health center to offer the morning-after pill.
Should the legislature seek to modify Alabama's existing abortion laws, there could be state constitutional hurdles to overcome, says State Senate President Pro-Tem Greg Reed (R-Jasper).
“I am a member of the State Republican Executive Committee. I have a 100% pro-Life voting record," Sen. Tom Butler (R-Madison) said. "I am a fiscal conservative. I am strong on the Second Amendment. We passed constitutional carry this past session."
Lance Bell is a St. Clair County attorney who is running for Alabama State Senate in House District 11 in the May 24 Republican Party Primary. He is a former law enforcement officer and former Chairman of the St. Clair County Republican Party.
If the draft opinion leaked earlier this month reflects the U.S. Supreme Court's ultimate ruling, overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and creating a new precedent will leave abortion law up to individual states, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall vowed to act immediately.
Last month, Susan B. Anthony List’s Candidate Fund PAC announced its endorsement of Gov. Kay Ivey in her re-election bid.
Every Republican candidate running for Governor has pledged to abolish abortion in Alabama, with the exception of Gov. Kay Ivey.
"My message isn’t only ‘do not murder,’ but trust in Christ and love your baby as your neighbor to the glory of God"
Eric Johnston, who as of 2019 had drafted more than 12 anti-abortion laws for the state, told Rightside Radio host and Alabama Policy Institute senior fellow Phil Williams that suggestions from legislators to possibly add exceptions to the 2019 abortion ban were not intended to be a part of the law he drafted.
State Rep. Terri Collins (R-Decatur), the original sponsor of the 2019 Human Life Protection Act, said the ban as it was constituted was not necessarily her preference.
