"Life is a gift of our Creator and we must do everything that we can to protect life", he responded, AL.com reported. This ruling also prohibited regulations from placing an "undue burden" on a woman's access to abortion. The bill, which bans all abortions except for those deemed truly necessary to save the life of the mother, now awaits Republican Gov. Kay Ivey's signature. It is the most expansive such ban in the country. Should the bill be signed into law it will go into effect six months later. All sides of the issue acknowledge it would immediately be challenged in court and would likely be halted, temporarily, while various judges weigh in.

"It's an extreme law, and they want to challenge Roe vs. Wade, but my humble view is that this is not the case we want to bring to the Supreme Court because I think this one will lose", he said.

If signed into law, it would be the most stringent abortion restriction in the country.

"When God creates the miracle of life inside a woman's womb, it is not our place as human beings to extinguish that life", said state Sen.

But Sen. Clyde Chambliss (R-Prattville), who sponsored the bill in the Senate, said that all unborn children deserve protection, AL.com reported.

Abortion opponents, meanwhile, were elated.

Of the 27 Republicans, all white men, that dominate the 35-seat Alabama senate, 25 voted to pass the abortion bill.

Liverpool beat Wolves but lose out on title to Man City
Manchester City retained their trophy by beating Brighton on the final day of the season, leaving Liverpool second on a mammoth 97 points.

Condemning the bill, Democratic state Senator Rodger Smitherman said that by passing the measure, "we're telling a 12-year-old girl, who, through incest and rape is pregnant, we are telling her that she doesn't have a choice".

Except in cases of an emergency, doctors performing the procedure would be charged with a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

"We made women of Alabama the model of the new Roe v. Wade", Singleton continued.

"With liberal states approving radical late-term and post-birth abortions, Roe must be challenged, and I am proud that Alabama is leading the way", Ainsworth wrote on Twitter.

"She has to take a pregnancy test, she has to do something to know whether she's pregnant or not", he said. "Not everyone can afford to do that".

Democratic Sen. Vivian Davis Figures questioned why supporters would not want victims of rape or incest to have an exception for a horrific act. "The notion that somehow this is going to be the vehicle for the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade is really misplaced".

However, several other Supreme Court decisions have been categorically overturned regardless of respective stare decisis classification; among them Plessy v. Ferguson, the 1896 case that established the "separate but equal" principle that was subsequently overturned in 1954 by Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.

The legislation would make performing an abortion a felony at any stage of pregnancy with nearly no exceptions.
