As States Race to Limit Abortions, Alabama Goes Further, Seeking to Outlaw Most of Them

As States Race to Limit Abortions, Alabama Goes Further, Seeking to Outlaw Most of Them Amid a flurry of new limits on abortion being sought in states around the nation, Alabama is weighing a measure that would go further than all of them — outlawing most abortions almost entirely. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The effort in Alabama, where the State Senate could vote as soon as Thursday, is unfolding as Republicans, emboldened by President Trump and the shifting alignment of the Supreme Court, intensify a long-running campaign to curb abortion access.

Conservative commentator and Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren spoke out against Alabama’s recent abortion law, even while acknowledging she could come under fire from her own side of the aisle.

Lahren has been a target of social media backlash in the past, but it’s never stopped her from sharing her opinion on hotly contested topics. After Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed an almost total ban on abortion, Lahren shared her views on Twitter, which are likely to be unpopular among some of her usual fan base.

Alabama Lawmakers Vote to Effectively Ban Abortion in the State

Alabama Lawmakers Vote to Effectively Ban Abortion in the State The Alabama Senate approved a measure on Tuesday that would outlaw almost all abortions in the state, setting up a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, the case that recognized a woman’s constitutional right to end a pregnancy. 

Tomi Lahren , known for her conservative views, offered a surprisingly liberal take on the new abortion bans sweeping the country. It doesn ’ t save a life , it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries. You don’t encourage life via blanket government mandate

Alabama ’ s new abortion ban is too restrictive and will not reduce abortions . If the pro- life movement really wants to support women to ultimately choose life when making the most difficult decision they’ve ever had to make, do you really think a government mandate is the way to do it?

“I will be attacked by fellow conservatives for saying this but so be it, this Alabama abortion ban is too restrictive,” Lahren wrote. “It doesn’t save life, it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries.”

Lahren concluded her Twitter post with the comment that life shouldn’t be encouraged by way of “blanket government mandate.”

This isn’t the first time Lahren’s voiced her opinion about abortion and two years ago, she shocked people by publicly announcing she considered herself pro-choice. While on The View, co-host Sunny Hostin brought up that Lahren was pro-choice, which seemed to surprise co-host Joy Behar.

“I’m pro-choice and here’s why. I’m … someone that loves the Constitution, I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say 'I’m for limited government, but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies,'” Lahren explained.

Alabama's Abortion Ban Has A Clear Target: Roe v. Wade

Alabama's Abortion Ban Has A Clear Target: Roe v. Wade Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) approved a near-total abortion ban on Wednesdayaimed at the United States Supreme Court and designed to overturn Roe v. Wade,the landmark 1973 decision establishing a woman's right to an abortion underthe U.S. Constitution.Roe v. Wade makes it clear that women have a right to abortion guaranteed bythe 14th Amendment, but the Alabama measure almost universally prohibitsabortions. Doctors who perform an abortion are to be subject to at least 10 and as many as 99 years in prison. The only exception in the legislation is if a pregnancy puts a woman’s life at risk. The law is set to become effective in six months.

The Human Life Protection Act, also known as House Bill 314 (HB 314) and the Alabama abortion ban, is an Alabama statute enacted on May 15, 2019, that was set to impose a near-total ban on abortion in the state starting in November 2019

Share. Tweet. Share. Share. Email. Comments. As the political and social media partisans battle over Alabama ’ s new law that bans nearly all abortion procedures, conservative commentator and Fox News host Tomi Lahren spoke up in a tweet this Thursday

She argued that just as the government should not involve itself with her firearms, it also shouldn’t be involved with the choices she makes with her body. Her stance garnered praise from Behar, who encouraged her to speak to Republican women. Lahren responded that she already had done so.

Just as reactions to Lahren’s comments on The View were mixed, her Thursday tweet received a blend of praise and criticism. Some agreed, and others noted it was the first tweet of hers they had ever liked. However, others argued that the law would save lives and a few even questioned if her Twitter account was hacked.

Lahren was far from alone in taking a stand against the law, and joined prominent political figures and celebrities in speaking out against it. Among the detractors was television evangelist Pat Robertson, who said the state went “too far” and labeled it “extreme.” He added that it was “ill-considered” and called the case one he wouldn’t want to bring to the Supreme Court.
