  1. That Terri, with her bottle dyed hair, is a fool. You better believe that those male Republicans who voted for this bill will send their pregnant chippies and daughters out of state to get abortions. I hate them.
    Also, what about the males who contribute to the pregnancies? Oh, well, they are gonna turn their heads from holding them accountable. Uh huh.
    Did I mention I hate Republicans?

  2. Men should have NO SAY what a woman does with her body.
    Let's keep those incestuous christians in the past.

  3. The left has already done genocide on the black community with abortion and now the murdering the baby after it is born. These states need to start pushing back on the madness of the left.

  4. This is nauseating. Go after the dad too then. Make birth control available free, and pass laws to support food programs and counseling. Help with housing, fund education. If you're going to play God then back it up with support.

  5. Good. If a lunatic decides to slaughter a baby growing in the safety of the womb, then a third party must intervene on behalf of said baby.

  6. Victory at Last! Victory at Last!! #Alabama has conquered Civil Rights and NOW put a stop to the murdering genocide of the demoKKKrat Abortion.. God is Good!!

  7. God bless Alabama! It's about time to take massive action and stop the murder of innocent life in this country. While we are at it, its time to expose the lies pushed by the radical fascist left regarding abortion. Get ready liberals, Roe will be overturned in your lifetime. Bank on it. #OverturnRoe

  8. Elections have consequences.
    White women have a history of voting for conservative candidates in aggregate.

    One of most repeated statistics from the 2016 election is that more than half of white women voted for Donald Trump. The headlines from the 2018 midterms were similarly scathing in its critique of white female voters.
    A vote for a large percentage of GOP candidates at this point in our nation’s history is largely a vote for white supremacy, xenophobia, and misogyny.

    Among women voters, white women voters continue to be the weakest link. They are also among the most visible in public discussions about the need for change. While white men remain the strongest opposition to electoral politics skewing left, white women heading to the polls continue to choose to uphold white supremacy and patriarchy. In the 2004, 2008, and 2012 presidential elections, the majority of white women voted for the GOP candidate. The numbers don’t lie.

  9. Would be cheaper to give all 18 yr old men a vasectomy. They can reverse it when they get married.

  10. They voted for a pregnancy as a result of incest to be carried to term. What does that say about this state?

  11. so "Sharia Law" has come to Alabama…
    I didn't realize the state had such a large ISIS population…
    but the religious zealots have taken over…
    proving again religion can make you stupid…

  12. Alabama used to be a state where 1st cousins married yet they shoved the Bible down people's throats and still do.Hypocrisy and racism are still big down in Bama it seems.

  13. Georgia: “We just passed the most restrictive abortion law in the nation!”
    Alabama: “Hold my moonshine.”

  14. Alabama has started the resistance against the satanic laws and methods of the Nazis atheist leftists. Finally some protection for innocent babies. I predict this movement will turn into a giant tide and will wash away socialist and atheist decadence in the US and Europe were it has set foot again after the horrific WWII and cold war era of the National socialists atheists (Nazis, Fascists) and internationalist socialists (Marxists). Best news in ages. Regards.

  15. Hostile law? To save a baby's life? I think it is hostile to murder babies! Solve the problem and tell women to use protection!

  16. All these flyover states seem determined to keep us tourists away from them, spending our holiday money in more civilized places instead. Very odd.

  17. In the spirit of "a more perfect union" the public must begin to counter and get out ahead of these confederate states governors and legislatures by organizing petition awareness and drives to bring certain issues before the public for consideration visa vie: abortion rights, former felons voting rights restored, school funding, etc..
