Republicans in the Alabama Senate late Tuesday night passed a bill making nearly all abortions illegal, with the specific goal of having the law challenged in the courts and ultimately, they hope, overturning Roe v. Wade.
The “Human Life Protection Act” bans all abortions from the point of conception, with the only exclusion being in the case of “a serious health risk” for the mother. Abortions for rape and incest are also banned.
Doctors who perform an abortion in Alabama under the bill could be sentenced to 99 years in prison.
Republicans in the House passed the bill last week.
It now heads to Republican Governor Kay Ivey’s desk. She has yet to indicate if she will sign it.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC
It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.
"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

WATCH: Trump apologist goes down in flames when he claims Democrats don’t get attacked like Trump
Former White House advisor Matt Mowers went down in flames trying to claim Democrats call everyone a racist when they don't agree with them. He had to go back 15 years to find an example, but still never fully explained what the example was.
In a panel discussion with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Mowers employed the "what about" strategy, spinning the idea that Trump's racist remarks were justified because Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) used an anti-Semitic trope. To be fair, Omar apologized and met with community leaders and officials to better understand anti-Semitism. Trump can't even admit when he did something wrong, much less racist.
