The Alabama state Senate is prepared to pass a bill on Thursday that would outlaw abortion at basically every stage of pregnancy, making it the strictest abortion law in the country, before "a fight broke out" and the chamber tabled the vote, the Washington Post reports.
Details: The bill would make abortion a felony and criminalize the procedure for doctors, who could face up to 99 years in prison if convicted, according to AL.com. After the bill passed Alabama's House without any exceptions last week, the state's Senate Judiciary Committee adopted an amendment to allow abortions for rape or incest. The ACLU of Alabama has already signaled its intention to challenge the law in court if it's passed and signed by Republican Gov. Kay Ivey.
