Alabama’s Republican-controlled state senate has passed a near-total ban on abortion, reigniting the debate around women’s rights once again.
The bill which was approved by the Alabama House of Representatives has received widespread criticism since it was announced with the ban being upheld even in cases of rape or incest. Many view the move as a step backwards in the apparently progressive times that we live.
