Democrats say Alabama is killing people by banning abortion

By Peter Hasson

Congressional Democrats reacted to Alabama’s new ban on abortion by arguing that the bill will effectively kill people.

Republican Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on Wednesday signed into law the bill, which bans abortion in all cases except where necessary to protect the life or health of the mother.

Roughly 6,700 abortions were performed in 2017, the most recent year available, according to the Alabama Center for Health Statistics.

Democrats claimed the abortion ban is sentencing women to death.

“Alabama’s law won’t stop abortion, but it will kill women,” Democratic California Rep. Harley Rouda wrote on Twitter. “Women’s bodies are under attack, and I won’t sit idly by as millions of Americans lose their freedom to choose.”

“The #AlabamaAbortionBan is ridiculous – we must demand that women have the choice to make decisions about their own bodies,” added Trone.

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris, one of 23 Democrats running for president in 2020, told reporters that women will die as a result of tighter abortion laws, USA Today reported.

When previously asked by The Daily Caller News Foundation, Harris avoided saying whether she thinks abortion is ever immoral.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another 2020 candidate, similarly suggested that eliminating abortion will prove deadly.

“When I was a little girl, it was a time when back alley abortions killed people. And when young women, girls really, killed themselves rather than face an unplanned pregnancy. We’re not going back — not now, not ever,” Warren said.

Democratic California Rep. Katie Porter also asserted that banning abortion will lead to deaths.

“This is unconstitutional, unconscionable, and un-American,” Porter wrote on Twitter.

“I will never –– I repeat: never –– stop fighting for women’s reproductive freedom. Let’s be absolutely clear: women will die and doctors could spend up to 99 years in prison with Alabama’s new law,” Porter added.

“Let’s like fight like our lives depend on it –– because they do,” she added in another tweet.

  1. When Sen. Warren was a girl, there was a HUGE stigma to having a baby out of wedlock. That is not the case today. If only the pro-abortion folks put as much energy into solutions for placing unwanted children, or assistance for women in crisis who would prefer to keep their babies but feel they can’t cope. They have effectively de-humanized unborn babies (if they are unwanted, that is) so that killing another human being is an acceptable solution. What does that say about our society – that putting to death defenseless humans is a solution and cause for celebration?

    • If only the pro-life folks put a much energy in helping babies thatalready exist rather than taking away women’s rights to their own bodies. There are enough unwanted babies in foster care getting abused and killed; there are enough babies living in poverty with mothers whose lives were destroyed because their freedomwas taken from them. Stop dehumanizing women-the actual human in the situation.

  2. “Women’s bodies are under attack, ”
    Abortion isn’t and shouldn’t be a form of birth control which is what this is all about. It’s bad enough
    everyone has to pay for REAL birth control through higher ins rates but now we’re suppose to think
    like the ghoulish blood sucking leftarded faction, killing is ok if you can’t see ‘um…
    Reproductive Rights should also go to the being being produced what they are claiming
    should be rightly called Reproductive Wrongs…

  3. This reproductive rights excuse is lame, they already reproduced, now it is another life that is NOT their life. To deny that that baby is a real baby is to say that you yourself are not human, you once were that fetus. Stop denying murder of another human being that is NOT your body, that baby is ALIVE. Start to reverence the Creator God before it is too late. We will all give an account one day. Just give your baby away to all the millions that can’t have children and can’t afford to pay $40,000 to adopt!

    • If a fetus is not part of a woman’s body; where is it exactly? Being “alive” should wait until you’re actually born and are an actual human; much like the woman whose freedom you want to take away. Leave choices to people.

  4. Liberal Idiots, It just shows just how stupid they really are when making a statement
    like above…..The sky is falling rhetoric !!

    Abortions are killing unborn humans by the ” thousands” are there that many morons
    among us ??……..If someone gets knocked up this day and age well, yup your an Idiot.

    With this bill, a woman still has the right to do with her body what she wants, if you don’t
    want to become pregnant you can sustain, use protection, get sterilized or pull a Monica
    but to rip out an unborn child is disgusting and you probably should never become a mother,

    Then we have these two political masterminds with there rhetoric about this bill, yes
    Sen. Kamala Harris told reporters that ” women will die ” as a result of tighter abortion laws,
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested that eliminating abortion will prove ” deadly ” I guess an
    ” unborn child ” doesn’t matter ?? These two believe this will get them votes for there 2020
    bid………they really don’t care, it’s all about the VOTE… go with the flow !!

    • If “ripping out a child” is disgusting and they “should never become mothers” why not mind your own business and let them make that exact choice?!
