Montgomery, AL - Fridays are procedure days @ one of the last three clinics in Alabama. This morning, the umbrellas are up, but it isn’t raining. Volunteers lined up at the entrance to protect the women arriving for an abortion.
As women arrive, shielded under the umbrellas, anti-abortion activists yell through a megaphone “at 11 weeks, a baby smiles,” to try and dissuade them from going inside. Volunteers play loud music in an attempt to drown them out.
Across the street, a bus offers free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds. A sign reading “fake bus clinic” is inside the car parked in front of it. Anti-abortion activists surround the bus with signs saying “choose life.”

The Alabama GOP want to ban all abortions but supported a senate candidate who got banned from a mall for harassing teenage girls.
Sex education and birth control stop abortions much more effectively than a ban ever could. #HB314
#hb314 has no exceptions for rape or incest, so the implication is, you get pregnant from rape or incest, it’s your fault.

Alabama's #HB314 law to ban abortion is not just a disgusting attack on women, and an attempt for men and society to once again own women's bodies, it is bad law supported by a bunch of idiots who don't know what they're doing. #alpolitics
The main proponent of #HB314 says it still allows for women to get an abortion BEFORE knowing they're pregnant, and that this is a safeguard. But once they do something to know (like take a necessary test) they can't get one. I have heard some daft things in my time, but this....
There is NO provision in #HB314 to protect those who are raped or survivors of incest. Apparently they are just supposed to come forward immediately and get said abortion based on aforementioned "safeguard". This is repugnant and ignores understanding of trauma. #alpolitics

And there it is folks Chambliss admits that the MS bill is written as a direct challenge to Roe & designed to be sent to #SCOTUS to challenge it.

The health and safety of Alabama women is being used to as a political football to advance an extreme agenda. #HB314 #alpolitics
Chambliss also states that rulings from #SCOTUS are not designed to be place forever. Essentially that precedent be damned if it does not fit the political agenda of the party in power. This should be chilling to EVERYONE who claims to believe the rule of law #HB314 #alpolitics
You can tune in here:…
HUGE shout out to the AL Democrats who fighting tooth & nail to protect the rights of women. And even bigger shout out to the groups on the ground: @PPSE_Advocates @YellowFund @ALWomensCenter #HB314 #alpolitics #StopTheBans
