Alabama abortion bill raises questions over the future of Roe v. Wade

  • Published on May 15, 2019
  • Alabama lawmakers passed a bill to ban virtually all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest, unless there's a risk to the mother's health. The move is seen as an effort to get the Supreme Court to reverse Roe v. Wade. Ilya Shapiro, director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Consitutional Studies at the Cato Institute, joined CBSN to discuss the legal implications of this bill.

    That sounds stupid ''Poor and minority women''. Jewish Feminists are basically just saying ''Black women are too stupid to know they are pregnant'' without saying it.

    Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by getting rid of a human fetus. There is a dilemma there. Either the termination of a human fetus is the killing of an innocent life or it is not. If the termination of a human fetus is the killing of an innocent life, then the millions of abortions under Roe v Wade are immoral. If the termination of a human fetus is not the killing of an innocent life, then the millions of abortions under Roe v Wade are moral.

      @Daisy Elmir a vasectomy or jail time is not the same as murdering a baby.

      @Daisy Elmir Until women are also held responsible for their actions because most are not forced into being pregnant, and when men are given an equal concern when he in most cases is made responsible financially and legally required by law to be involved in the child's life by law (if the woman pursued such action) then the man should be able in all fairness be able to just leave with no problems, just like mothers who can abort willy-nilly.

      @Daisy Elmir Child support ties into this as well when men face jail time if they do not want to, even sperm donors who are suppose to be anonymous.

      When have women been heavily punished for stuff like this?

      When most women choose to have sex it is not the same as your hypothetical on forcing men to get a vasectomy. It won't mean much other than more restrictions for men if women can easily abuse it where they can opt out when it takes two to make a kid (a common argument to make men accountable, though not much is seen on this for women as well).

    Democrats promote abortions because Planned Parenthood funnels taxpayer money into Democrat bank accounts thru campaign contributions.
    Your *choice* has nothing to do with it. It's always about your *MONEY.* They don't care about you. They don't even know you and wouldn't speak to you if they saw you.

      These Rethuglicans ONLY CARE until the child is born.
      They use abortion as a political issue.
      They could care less...examples..
      no prenatal care, no healthcare while giving birth...infant and mother mortality rates are through the roof already in Alabama.
      Sick, just sick.
