Birmingham, AL. –



  Alabama Governor Robert Bentley on Wednesday signed  into law a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, making it the fifth state to enact such a restriction this year. The law goes into effect September 1.  The measure which was approved by the large majorities in both chambers of the Republican controlled legislature, makes performing such procedures a felony, with no exceptions.

  Alabama law currently allows abortion up to  the stage of fetal viability usually up to the stages 24 to 26 weeks gestation.  Good for them! Too bad it the South who have the good ideas into action in this writer’s opinion!
