Jameela Jamil says abortion was the 'best decision' she ever made

The Republican-dominated Alabama Senate voted 25-6 for the bill that would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison.

Figures received cheers and clapping from a packed gallery, which was overlooking the Senate floor, largely filled with activists who support the right to have an abortion. Those bills point to the detection of a fetal heartbeat as the point at which an abortion is banned, but the Alabama ban goes further.

Jamil said the law especially targets lower-income women who are "marginalized, poor or disabled", adding that "the wealthy will have so much more freedom".

"As this legislation is still making its way through the legislative process, the governor intends to withhold comment until it makes its way to her desk for signature", deputy press secretary Lori Jhons wrote in an email. Supporters say the bill is intentionally created to conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationally, because they hope to spark court cases that might prompt the justices to revisit abortion rights.

The debate became emotional at times as Democratic Sen.

"You don't care anything about babies having babies in this state, being raped and incest, " Democratic Senator Bobby Singleton said angrily after the amendment's defeat. He also said that it is unfortunate that lawmakers want to punish women for the sake of a political movement. The legislation now goes to Gov. Kay Ivey, who will decide whether to sign the bill into law.

"It's like a racehorse in the Kentucky Derby - blinders on all sides - they just keep on this Roe v. Wade thing", Smitherman said.

Alabama already has a case in the federal courts over a restrictive abortion law passed in 2016. It's part of a broader anti-abortion strategy to prompt the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider the right to abortion. "We are not even adequately funding public education, yet they are going to pass this bill". "I have prayed my way through this bill".

Similarly restrictive abortion bans in Kentucky and MS already are before the courts, and lawmakers in Alabama are fully aware that judges are likely to intervene.

Supporters of the legislation say it would restrict the use of a "barbaric" procedure they call "dismemberment" abortion, a nonmedical term for dilation and evacuation.

"So many children will end up in foster homes".
