In case you have not heard it (see more at LifeSiteNews), the state of Alabama has just enacted the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a law which essentially bans abortion in Alabama except to avert a mother’s death or serious bodily impairment to the mother.
As expected, the bill will be challenged by the ACLU.
The thought is that it will eventually make it to the U.S. Supreme Court as a challenge to Roe v. Wade.
The hope is that the new Court makeup will lean the Court towards a proper interpretation of the Constitution which should be understood as protecting all lives, including the lives of young children in the womb.
Given the uncertainty of what Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh might conclude, it will certainly be a nail biter, but there is no better way to find out than to put it to the Court directly, as Alabama has done.
Reactions against the new law are predictably illogical and emotional (read more at LifeSiteNews). I find the tweet of child-killing proponent Alyssa Milano to be particularly poignant. Attached to an image of her holding her young daughter, Milano says: “This is my daughter. Her rights are human rights.”
Milano does not grasp that the new Alabama law recognizes the very statement she makes about her daughter. Indeed, her daughter has human rights, the first being the right to life, and she has had these rights since her conception.
By her own words, Milano ought to be praising the new law!
In any case, we look forward to the human rights of all human beings being defended in law.
