Skipping Towards Talabama

Via, I learned that two legislators in Alabama want to join in with all the fun the South Dakotan legislators are having:

Two Alabama legislators have introduced bills that would ban almost all abortions in the state, except those performed to save women's lives.

The bills are similar to legislation banning abortion that passed in South Dakota last month and was signed on March 6 by Republican Gov. Mike Rounds.

"I thought if South Dakota can do it, Alabama ought to do it because we are a family-friendly state," said state Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo, who has introduced a bill in the Senate that would even ban abortions in cases where a woman became pregnant because of rape or incest.

"I don't think you need to penalize the unborn child when something like that happens," Erwin said.

No, we shouldn't penalize embryos. Let's just add further torture of the woman who was raped. This is yet another example of the Rapist's Fatherhood Initiative.
