MONTGOMERY, Ala., May 26, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Alabama Senate Bill, SB301, passed the Senate 23-7. Last minute changes to the bill changed it from a personhood bill, which would have banned all abortions, to a ban of all surgical abortions and many chemical abortions. If the bill passes the House, it will be the first time in state history that all surgical abortions will be outlawed since Roe v. Wade.The original text, introduced by Senator Phil Williams, read : "The term 'persons' as used in the Code of Alabama 1975, shall include any human being from the moment of fertilization or the functional equivalent thereof." The amended text now reads "The term 'persons' as used in the Code of Alabama 1975, shall include any human being from the moment of fertilization and implantation into the womb."
