“Please pass HB314-the Alabama Human Life Protection Act (Abortion Bill) in its original form with NO amendments!”
NO AMENDMENT NEEDED!!! Many are arguing to add amendments to include an exception for rape and incest...but this is covered on page 7 (lines 1-16) under "serious mental illness." If a mother is unable to carry the unborn child due to serious mental health issues, the pregnancy may be terminated by a licensed Alabama physician. In the case of pregnancy by rape or incest, the victims are placed under psychiatric care and that determination is addressed under private care (eg., it includes suicide ideation, harming herself or the unborn child). Another concern under rape and incest is when a young child becomes pregnant, they should not be forced to carry the baby to term because of concerns with serious health risks. Again, this is covered on page 6 under SERIOUS HEALTH RISK TO THE UNBORN CHILD'S MOTHER. We believe these issues are already addressed in the bill.
PLEASE CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR--WE CAN'T ALLOW AMENDMENTS TO BE ADDED!!
The bill’s purpose is to establish personhood. If an amendment is added for rape or incest then that destroys the personhood argument. It would be inconsistent to say that the unborn child IS a person, but that if he is conceived as a result of rape or incest, he is NOT a person. An amendment would destroy the bill's chance to challenge Roe V. Wade. If we are going to abolish abortion, WE MUST PASS A CLEAN BILL.
