REPORT: Fact-Checking Alabama’s Latest Abortion Ban Bill – 9 Things We Should Know

We recently reported the new Alabama law banning abortion in the article Abortion Ban Law Signed Into Effect By Alabama’s Governor! It has been welcomed with open arms by many pro-life supporters. Conversely, the outcry from the “pro-choice” faction has been predictably dramatic, such as was staged by numerous Hollywood personalities which we reported in the article ‘This Ends with Impeachment and People in the Streets’ – Hollywood Stars Flip Out Over Alabama’s New Law.

In last week’s report, there was some mention made of details as to the bigger picture of the purpose of the bill, specifically to challenge Roe v. Wade. What follows expands on that report, and gives more of a step-by-step fact check of the issues connected to the new law.

This from Breitbart:

On Wednesday, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed what many consider the nation’s strictest abortion law, which makes any physician performing an abortion guilty of a felony in almost all cases.

The exception would be when a pregnancy poses “a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother.”

As expected, the national media have been critical of the Alabama law and have given little attention to the Alabama legislature’s goal, which is to challenge the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision by establishing personhood for a baby inside the womb.

With personhood, the Constitution affords certain rights and protections, as explained by the bill’s sponsor in the Alabama Senate, Sen. Clyde Chambliss (R-Prattville).

“The way that this bill is drafted – it goes to ask the question of personhood,” Chambliss said during an interview Thursday on Huntsville radio’s WVNN. “The 14th Amendment gives people, a person the right to life, liberty and property. But it doesn’t say when a person becomes a person. Obviously, if somebody is walking around, we know that’s a person. In the womb, do we know if that is a person or not? Unborn babies can hear, they can feel – at what point can they hear and feel and think and feel pain.”

“And so, we need some guidance,” he continued. “We need some guidance. We need some guidance from the Supreme Court. So this bill has been drafted so that it goes directly to that question. It goes to the Supreme Court, hopefully. And we do expect it to be ruled unconstitutional at the lower court. It has to be. It has no choice because they have to follow Supreme Court precedent. That’s no surprise. We know that’s going to happen. We know that will be found unconstitutional on appeal, but hopefully, we’ll have the Supreme Court to take up the matter. And we hope and we feel that the Supreme Court will rule this law constitutional because it gets to that personhood issue that is so, so important.”

With that in mind, there are still questions regarding the politics and the legal reasoning behind the law.

1 – Why was this passed now and not when the makeup of the Supreme Court actually shifts in a direction to overturn Roe or until after the 2020 election?

This is the first year of a quadrennium, which is the first year of a term for members of the Alabama legislature. Traditionally, big-ticket items are passed in the first year’s legislative session, which began in March.

Given the expected controversy of the issue, the leadership in the Republican-led Alabama legislature perhaps saw this as the best time politically to move on the bill, given voters will have moved on by the 2022 legislative and gubernatorial elections.

The next best possibility for Alabama’s legislature to pass such a law might not have come until 2023. Given that these cases take years to work themselves through the federal court system, the Supreme Court might not get to it until 2025 or 2026. By then, the Supreme Court might not be as favorable for conservatives.

2 – The lack of an exception in the cases of rape and incest seems extreme. Why wasn’t that included?

The purpose of the law is to challenge the Supreme Court’s 1973’s Roe v. Wade decision by establishing a baby in the womb as a person. If exceptions are added for cases of rape and incest, then it contradicts the argument, according to the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Terri Collins (R-Decatur).

“The reasoning is the same reasoning, Roe v. Wade was decided that the baby in the womb was not a person,” Collins said at an event in Huntsville, AL before the bill’s passage. “So this bill bases its reasoning that the baby in the womb is a person. And we based it on the fact that in Alabama law, we currently consider the baby in the womb a person. If you were a drunk driver and you killed a pregnant woman, you have a double homicide on your hands. We voted as a state to be a pro-life state.”

Adding the exception for rape and incest could negate the argument that the baby in the womb is a person, she argued.

“The biggest thing to attack it with is to say, ‘What, you’re not going to include rape and incest?’” Collins said. “Well, how do we say, ‘The baby inside is a person unless they’re conceived in rape or incest’? If that amendment was to get on the bill, then I’ll kill the bill because it won’t go to the Supreme Court. It will contradict itself.

3 – Gov. Ivey said in her statement that this might not even be enforceable. So why was it passed?

The intention of the bill is not meant to be enforceable according to its proponents, but a legal challenge to Roe v. Wade and force the court to rule definitively on the personhood status of the baby in the womb.

4 – Would Alabama women be arrested under this law if they procured an abortion in another state?

No. As written, the law makes the activities of abortion physician illegal. The state of Alabama would not have jurisdiction of what takes places in other states.

5 – Does this bill imprison women who induced abortion on themselves?

No. Its sole focus is on the provider.

6 – Does it make it a felony for women, or just the abortion provider?

Just the provider.

7 – Would this make it illegal for a person to prescribe the Morning-After pill since one would only take that if they thought they were pregnant, and this bill makes abortion illegal from the moment a woman suspects she’s pregnant?

The Morning-After pill, as prescribed, is legally considered birth control and not a form of abortion.

“The decision was based on someone in utero, someone pregnant so we don’t get into conception. We don’t get into birth control,” Collins explained. “We don’t get into the morning-after pill, but in utero, which is the language they used that when a woman is pregnant. This bill criminalizes abortion through the doctor. And not the woman, but the doctor.”

8 – What makes this bill different from so-called “heartbeat” bills passed in other states, like Georgia?

Georgia’s law bans abortions after a physician is able to detect “a fetal heartbeat in the womb.” That can usually be at six weeks, which is before many women realize they are pregnant. In Alabama’s law, doctors cannot perform an abortion once a fetus is “in utero.”

9 – Does this bill make it harder for pro-lifers to win in 2020?

That perhaps depends on the precinct. The block of voters many political watchers fear will be turned off by the Alabama law are suburban women.

However, given the controversial actions of the New York State legislature, and the statement of Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA), the issue has made somewhat of a comeback.

Although Democrats may attempt to weaponize the state of Alabama’s actions politically, it will force the future Democratic presidential nominee to answer to questions about their party’s view on the issue.

Abortion is a get-out-the-vote hot-button issue for both parties, and one would have to assume it would have been at the forefront with or without the actions of the Alabama legislature.

I happen to be one of those who support the new law. I believe it’s long overdue. When Roe v. Wade was handed down, to a certain degree, people could claim ignorance of what happens in a woman’s womb. With today’s advances in medical scans and the like, there is no room left for those who claim that the baby inside is just a “clump of cells” or has the same significance as a tumor. Another widely accepted fact is that the body of the child is an entirely separate entity from the body of the mother. All of the baby’s systems are totally separate from the mother, and DNA samples prove conclusively that each is a totally independent person.

This website owes its existence to the man, David J Harris Jr, and his passionate support of the right to life of the unborn. Those of us who work with him support him fully in this matter, and we hope to find others sympathetic to the cause of preserving life in the womb. If you share our conviction, we ask that you use the information and details of the things we share here to help our great nation turn from its wicked ways and return to the original principles and patterns laid out for us first of all in the Holy Bible and then by the Constitution of these United States. The corruption and depravity that has been sown into our great country must be rooted out, and to ban abortion would be a massive step in the right direction. Please share these articles with friends and neighbors. The task is enormous, but together we can Make America Great Again.

WOW! AOC Goes Toe-To-Toe With POTUS on Twitter!

Over the weekend, Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) gave us yet some more material to work with as we continue to expose various Democrat gaffes and inconsistencies. She was on a Sunday morning show this past weekend and commented that there’s a good chance President Trump will win re-election.

President Trump saw her words and sent the following tweet:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump.” I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!

She then responded with a tweet of her own directly to POTUS himself:

Mr. President, you’re from Queens.

You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week.

Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas, & more.

I can’t speak for you, but I think that is a pretty daring thing for a young upstart like herself to say to the seasoned warhorse currently sitting in the White House! I certainly would not care to be the one issuing such a statement publicly. In my mind, all she has done is widened the size of the bullseye on her backside for him to target!

We’ve shared several articles over the past few hours headlining AOC, and in a way, I almost want to apologize – but it’s HARD when she gives us more material to use than Johnny Carson or Jay Leno on The Tonight Show!

When she first started shooting off her mouth after her installation into the House of Representatives, I just wanted to get “the hook” and drag her off the stage, but she’s unwittingly become an ally of the Republicans with gaffe after gaffe.

In another of our articles, we saw that she may even be about to strike a deal with none other than Senator Ted Cruz! Marvels never cease!

President Trump Canceled Their Contract For Body Part Harvesting, University of California Slams His Action

We recently posted the article UCSF/Gov’t Contract For Fetal Tissue Research CANCELED! It went hand-in-hand with the article  27 Universities Purchased Body Parts From Aborted Babies for Experimental Research, which listed universities from coast to coast involved in the despicable practice of medical training facilities conditioning prospective health care professionals to turn a cold eye to the practice of harvesting infant body parts salvaged from abortions. UCSF took offense to the president’s actions and objected vigorously to the cancellation of their government funding.

LifeNews reported:

On June 5th, the Trump administration canceled the contract.

Now, the University of California System is slamming the president for his decision. The UC Office of the President claimed the research gained from using aborted baby parts was important and that the new restrictions are a step in the wrong direction.

“The Trump administration dealt a blow today to scientific discovery and medical advancement,” the statement reads. “Fetal tissue research has helped find cures for millions of Americans who suffer from debilitating diseases while improving the quality of life for others. It has fundamentally changed the practice of medicine — including advances in polio, measles and chickenpox vaccines — as well as treatments for Parkinson’s and rheumatoid arthritis, and cutting-edge research on HIV and Alzheimer’s disease.”

“The importance of fetal tissue research cannot be overstated, and today’s action is a step backward for science. The University of California will continue to fight for the critical lifesaving research that Americans have come to expect and rely on from our nation’s scientific community,” the statement continues.

UCSF Chancellor Sam Hagwood disagreed with the Trump administration’s decision. He said:

“UCSF strongly opposes today’s abrupt decision by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to discontinue intramural fetal tissue research by scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH),” Hagwood said. “The efforts by the administration to impede this work will undermine scientific discovery and the ability to find effective treatments for serious and life-threatening disease. Fetal tissue is used in important research aimed at discovering cures for illnesses that affect the lives of millions of Americans, including Alzheimer’s, spinal cord injury, eye disease, and HIV.”

Seeking the treatment of or the elimination of debilitating and deadly diseases is a noble pursuit. Killing babies in the womb with the intent of harvesting their body parts in the name of “research” is a complete 180 from the Hippocratic oath and light years away from a morally sound and humanitarian course of action.

How about we take a peek into the financial trail of those funding the practice (i.e., Follow The Money) and see what we can find in terms of genuine cures that have been suppressed in favor of demonstrably deadly treatments yet which continue to be used in spite of the treatments themselves being more harmful than the disease they supposedly “cure”?

AOC Campaigns To Force Americans To Fund Abortions With Taxpayer Dollars

A recent trend seems to have developed in which “pro-choice” advocates are trying to knock down a protective roadblock to the unborn called the Hyde Amendment. In brief, the Hyde Amendment was passed in 1977 and was implemented to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions by Medicaid recipients. It has been modified on occasion, but there is a push from the hard Left side of the aisle to completely repeal it, paving the way to more taxpayer money spent to kill unborn babies. One of the latest to join this murderous crusade is none other than freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

LifeNews has this to say:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes American taxpayers should be forced to pay for abortions because of income inequality.

National Review reports the New York congresswoman began a petition over the weekend seeking public support for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of abortions in Medicaid.

“The Hyde amendment isn’t about abortion per se,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “The Hyde amendment is truly about equality of healthcare and healthcare access for low income women and women of color and women that get caught in our mass incarceration system.”

Her announcement is part of a larger push by Democrats to end the popular amendment, which once had strong bipartisan support. The Democratic Party platform calls for its repeal, and every major Democratic presidential candidate wants it gone, too.

Ocasio-Cortez tried to frame the issue as a matter of equality for low-income women.

“And so the Hyde amendment is about income inequality and it’s about women’s healthcare in a system of income inequality. So I think that we need to repeal it,” she said.

We have a real battle on our hands, folks. Abortion is still being touted as “health care” when our available technology (for example, the ability we now have to see the child in the womb as it moves and reacts in pain as his or her body is torn apart by the surgical instruments or poisoned by the deadly solutions injected into their little bodies) clearly shows that it is anything BUT healthy for the child.

Proponents of abortion continue to focus on “women’s rights” and the supposed “income equality” issues that the Hyde Amendment supposedly created, but the bottom line is that abortion (when you strip away all the diversions and stare it straight in the face) is infanticide, plain and simple.
