Republican Gov. Kay Ivey has not confirmed whether she will sign the measure into law, but during the 2018 midterms, 59 percent of voters expressed their support for a bill banning abortions in the state. Opponents wanted an amendment to permit exceptions for rape and incest; proponents are pushing a "clean" bill that would clear the way for a Supreme Court review of Roe v. Wade.
The Alabama bill, which was approved by the House of Representatives 74-3 two weeks ago, goes further by seeking to outlaw abortion outright. Several, including Alabama's neighbors Georgia and MS, have passed laws that prohibit abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
"Our bill says that baby in the womb is a person", said Republican Rep. Terri Collins, the bill's sponsor, said in an interview.
Supporters said the bill is intentionally created to conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationally, because they hope to spark a court case that might prompt the justices to revisit abortion rights.
Jamil also clarified that her tweet wasn't meant to denigrate foster homes, writing, "I'm in awe of people who take in children in need of a family and a home: but if Georgia becomes inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for, it will be hard to find great fostering for them all".
