Alabamaís state Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that would outlaw nearly all abortions in the state and make performing one a felony unless the motherís health is at risk.

The bill will make the punishment for performing abortions up to 99 years or life in prison, although the woman who received one will not be subject to a felony charge.

The vote is expected to reignite a debate over Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision from 1973 that legalized abortion across the nation, and push Supreme Court justices to re-evaluate the laws.

"The heart of this bill is to confront a decision that was made by the courts in 1973 that said the baby in a womb is not a person," Republican state Rep. Terri Collins said in April.

Although the Alabama State House voted to pass the bill last month, 74-3, Democratic lawmakers pressed Tuesday, unsuccessfully, for amendments that would create exceptions in instances of rape and incest.

"You don't have to raise that child. You don't have to carry that child. You don't have to provide for that child. And yet you want to make that decision," Democratic state Sen. Vivian Davis Figures said.

Figures also suggested amendments that would make it a felony for a man to have a vasectomy, and another to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act; both were struck down by lawmakers in a 21-11 vote.

"The issue that that decision was made on ... is that the baby in the womb is a person," state Rep. Terri Collins, who sponsored the bill, said on Tuesday.

Republican Gov. Kay Ivey has not confirmed whether she will sign the measure into law, but during the 2018 midterms, 59 percent of voters expressed their support for a bill banning abortions in the state.

Fox News' Madeleine Rivera in Montgomery contributed to this report.

The Alabama Senate passed the bill yesterday and it will be on Kay Ivey's desk this morning to sign.

The Latest: Alabama Anti-Abortion Bill Headed To Governor







Margeaux Hartline, dressed as a handmaid, during a rally against HB314, the near-total ban on abortion bill, outside of the Alabama State House in Montgomery, Ala., on Tuesday May 14, 2019.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) ó The Latest on the Alabama Senate taking up a proposed abortion ban (all times local):
8:40 p.m.
Alabama lawmakers have passed a near total ban on abortion. If signed into law, it would be the most restrictive abortion measure in the United States.
The state Senate on Tuesday passed the bill that would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony.
The bill now goes to Gov. Kay Ivey, who will decide whether to sign the legislation into law. The Republican has not said publically whether she supports the measure.
Senators voted 25-6 for the bill that already cleared the House of Representatives.
The bill contains an exception for when the pregnancy creates a serious health risk for the woman, but there is no exception for rape or incest.
Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia recently have approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy.
Critics have promised a swift lawsuit to challenge the ban if enacted.
___

8:25 p.m.
Alabama lawmakers are near a vote on a proposed abortion ban that would be the most restrictive anti-abortion measure in the United States.
Senate Republicans filed a cloture petition to cut off debate at 8:33 p.m. and force a vote on the measure.
The bill would make it a felony to perform an abortion at any stage of pregnancy.
Supporters say they hope to spark a court case to challenge the 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
Republicans fended off attempts to amend the bill and add an exception for rape and incest.
If approved Tuesday night, the bill will go to Gov. Kay Ivey for her signature. It is unclear whether the Republican governor supports the measure.
The legislation comes after four states have approved abortion bans once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
___

7:25 p.m.
Alabama senators rejected an effort to exempt cases involving rape and incest from a proposed abortion ban in the state.
Senators on Tuesday voted 21-11 against adding the rape and incest exception to the proposal that would make performing an abortion a felony.
Some lawmakers expressed discomfort about the lack of an exemption for rape.
After the amendment's defeat, Democratic Sen. Bobby Singleton called the bill a "shame" and a "disgrace."
Others say they opposed exceptions because their goal is to create a court case to challenge the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
The bill is expected to get a vote Tuesday night.
___

6:45 p.m.
About 50 opponents of a bill that would severely restrict abortion in Alabama are demonstrating outside the Statehouse as legislators debate the measure inside.
A woman with a bullhorn led protesters in a chant of "Whose choice? Our choice" as a crowd composed mainly of journalists looked on.
Laura Stiller of Montgomery came to the demonstration dressed as a nurse and carrying wire coat hangers. She says the bill is nothing but a weapon to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.
The group gathered as the Alabama Senate debated the measure before a vote expected for Tuesday night.
___

If this law were to somehow hold up, and I have my doubts, then I suspect there would be very few OBGYN's in Alabama. No big deal, just go to another state for prenatal care and for delivering your baby. Law of unintended consequences.

0.000000% chance that this bill will hold up, just like all the other heartbeat bills.. Some have been defeated already and the others will be defeated soon..
Don't like abortions? Don't have one....

This will have a fantastic chilling effect on doctors across the country and force them to think twice about killing babies...

They will definitely think twice...with a significant national shortage of OBGYN's, why practice somewhere where a disagreement with a medical decision could have you facing a felony count.

This is historic and on par with:

the Declaration of Independence
the ratification of the Constitution
the emancipation proclamation
the civil rights act.

its a great day for America and we the people...

This law might bar rape victims from being given emergency contraception. The law states the doctor must know the woman is pregnant, which wouldn't be the case in a rape reported immediately, but that's only if a court reads the law narrowly.

It would definitely bar most child rape victims from abortion, as their rapes so often aren't discovered until they turn up pregnant.

Might be more complicated than that.

Alabama ranks in the bottom 5 in education (shocker).

http://www.nea.org/rankings-and-estimates

Alabama does not teach sex education or reproductive health (BIG shocker).

http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/...n-schools.aspx

So we get this: Alabama ranked in the highest quartile for teen births (predictable).
