On Tuesday evening the Alabama State Senate passed House Bill 314, the “Human Life Protection Act.” The bill is now ready for the Alabama Governor to sign the bill to determine if it officially passes.
The bill if signed by the Governor would be the strongest pro-life bill ever passed, which will likely challenge to Supreme Court ruling on roe V. Wade.
The bill passed the Alabama State House with a vote 74-3, and passed the state Senate 25-6. Likely the Republican Governor Kay Ivey will sign the bill to make it official.
The bill will outlaw any abortion outside if it is an immediate threat to the mothers life once a heartbeat is detected.
The bill explains what the requirement of a mother’s health risk to allow an abortion.
In reasonable medical judgment, the child’s mother has a condition that so complicates her medical condition that it necessitates the termination of her pregnancy to avert her death or to avert serious risk of substantial physical impairment of a major bodily function. This term does not include a condition based on a claim that the woman is suffering from an emotional condition or a mental illness which will cause her to engage in conduct that intends to result in her death or the death of her unborn child.
However, the condition may exist if a second physician who is licensed in Alabama as a psychiatrist, with a minimum of three years of clinical experience, examines the woman and documents that the woman has a diagnosed serious mental illness and because of it, there is reasonable medical judgment that she will engage in conduct that could result in her death or the death of her unborn child.
