On Tuesday 14th May, 2019, 25 white male Republican lawmakers out of 27 that dominate the 35-seat in Alabama senate voted to ban abortion, including cases of pregnancy through rape or incest, in the state at every stage of pregnancy, unless on the condition the mother’s physical or mental health is at risk. Two Republicans did not vote.
The prohibition law has raised a lot of was criticisms from many including singer, Rihanna who took to her Instagram page to lash the 25 white male Republican politicians who voted to ban abortion and Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey who signed the bill in the picture above.
The law also states that any doctor found guilty of the carrying out abortion will be in prison for 99 years. Some people frown at it and see it as unreasonable.
‘take a look. these are the idiots making decisions for WOMEN in America. Governor Kay Ivey…SHAME ON YOU!!!!’ Rihanna wrote.
