Democratic Alabama State Sen. Bobby Singleton slammed Republicans on CNN for passing a law in the State Senate that would jail doctors for up to 99 years for abortions, except for cases when the woman’s life is in danger:
I think that we raped women last night. We made the women of Alabama the model of the new Roe-versus-Wade. I think this is a horrible bill. Hopefully, if it gets to that level to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court will not select this as a test case.
Before I left last Thursday, there were at least twelve Republicans who had mentioned that their wives or their sisters or their daughters had said to them… don’t go down there and vote for that bill. Something went wrong over the weekend that members got lobbied or whatever happened and only four of those Republicans stood with us.
