15 May 8:06pm What the Alabama abortion bill really aims to do
On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled Alabama state legislature passed a measure that would ban abortion -- with the exception of when the life of the mother is in jeopardy -- in all circumstances. The state's Republican governor -- Kay Ivey -- signed it on Wednesday, meaning two things will happen: 1) Alabama will become the state with the country's most restrictive abortion law and 2) the law will immediately become fodder for the swirling debate over if (and when) the Supreme Court might consider overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling.
