You know I really don't get the 'mericans.

No paid maternity leave, healthcare system that is even more socially unaware than our own (policy wise, maybe not delivery wise) and this abortion crap.

These things shouldn't even be a topic under discussion in the civilised world and yet the yanks view themselves as world leaders? Completely baffling.

Fifty states in the US, and Alabama is ranked:

45th economically
45th for opportunity
45th for crime and correction
46th for healthcare
50th for education


Also, this may shock some folk here, but every one of those senators who voted to include rape and incest in the bill, supported Roy Moore who was accused of sexual misconduct, child molestation and pedophilia during ‘Bama’s last Senatorial special election...

... and Roy Moore will be running again in the next Senatorial race.

What do you mean?
The overton window (for pro-choice folk) on abortion has been pushed from "safe, legal and rare" to shout out your abortion and abortion anytime before birth.

I kinda thought that's what you meant, not the reality which is "incremental legislation on the margins of abortion rights for the past two years has made it acceptable to deny rape and incest survivors access to abortion". Somehow in your mind the left are always responsible for horrific behavior by the right.

A bunch of men get to decide what a woman is allowed to do with her body, nice.
A woman actually needs to sign this into law. Let's see what she does.

It now moves to the desk of Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican. Although the governor has not publicly committed to signing the legislation, many Republican lawmakers expect her support.

The fact that men are still deciding what women may or may not do, shows how primitively uncivilised and backward humanity still is.
Actually women decided this. These are elected officials voted for by women. Many women didn't yet fall for the extremists feminist propaganda that killing babies by using abortion as a form of birth control is somehow "pro choice" and something positive for women. Most of you guys in favour of this can be very glad your mother's didn't abort you, I will bet a high percentage of everyone on here in favour of abortion was actually a mistake and shouldn't even be here.
