HB300 Amends the Alabama constitution to redefine "'persons' as any human being from the moment of fertilization or the functional equivalent thereof." This means women who might miscarry (an estimated 20% of all pregnancies) could be subject to investigation and legal action. (Hard to believe? Just ask the hundreds of women who have been arrested in other states.) Also, couples opting for In Vitro fertilization, as well as doctors who offer it, would be subject to legal action.
SB9 "Fetal Heartbeat" bill could make ending pregnancy as early as 6 weeks illegal. That's before many women are even aware they're pregnant. Doctors who violate the ban can be imprisoned.
Bills in other states similar to these proposed new AL laws have been declared unconstitutional. Defending such bad legislation has cost other states millions. Alabama is already millions of dollars in debt. Blowing funds to defend malicious legislation shows absolute fiscal irresponsibility.
These bills are MOVING FAST! Please take a moment to let members of the AL House Health Committee hear from you! It's EASY--click here to send this email to them NOW!
Dear members of the AL House Health Committee: I am writing to demand that you kill Bills SB9 and HB300 before they harm innocent women, keep the best healthcare professionals out of Alabama or cost the state millions we simply do not have.
Please put our state and her citizens above dangerous ideology.
Don't forget to add your name and zip code at the bottom!
