Alabama has just passed the most restrictive abortion law in the US, banning the procedure even in cases of rape or incest and firing up a debate that has raged since Roe v. Wade first made abortion legal in 1973.
“We know that it’s a concerted attempt to overturn Roe v Wade – that’s why they’re making the litmus test so strong,” former Georgia congresswoman Dee Dawkins-Haigler told RT, denouncing the Alabama bill as an “all-out attack on women’s right for reproductive freedom.”
Dawkins-Haigler decried the cruelty and stigmatization of forcing rape and incest victims to carry a child to term, but Sheffield insisted that where there’s a human life at stake, “it’s not how that human life got there” that matters. “Two wrongs don’t make a right,” she said.
