Alabama introduces abortion ban

Talk about the worst trend ever. Lawmakers in Alabama have introduced abortion ban bills a la South Dakota.

“I thought if South Dakota can do it, Alabama ought to do it because we are a family-friendly state,” said state Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo, who has introduced a bill in the Senate that would even ban abortions in cases where a woman became pregnant because of rape or incest.

Yeah, cause nothing says “family-friendly” like bullying rape and incest victims.

    Excuse me for picking a nit but
    Nothing says patriarchy like a ‘Rapists Right to Fatherhood Bill’ in a family values legislature.
