Alabama state Sen. Vivian Figures, D-Mobile filed a bill on Tuesday to repeal Alabamas abortion ban law.
"There are consequences for every decision we make as legislators, and for every vote we cast there are ramifications, Figures said in a release. However, some of these effects are unintended and I truly believe this has been the case for SB314. I do not believe my Republican colleagues had any idea what the consequences for passing this bill would be. false
Figures cited criticism from across the state as well as from President Donald Trump, Sen. Mitt Romney and 700 Club Founder Pat Robertson as reason for challenging the most extreme abortion ban law in the country.
"I felt that the least I could do was to offer a bill to repeal HB314 with the hopes that it would help to heal some of the wounds that my Republican brothers and sisters have inflicted on the great state of Alabama, Figures said in a release. Unfortunately this bill is serving as a detriment to the entire state of Alabama in terms of revenues and in terms of healthcare, particularly for women.
The bill highlights possible negative implications the law would have on the state including declining tourism and the costly legal battle from anticipated litigation. The bill also lists issues the sponsors believe should be addressed with the resources that would be allocated to the legal defense of the abortion ban such as infant mortality, rural health care and health insurance.
Figures was one of three women on the Senate floor last week. She argued for hours alongside state Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-Greensboro and Sen. Roger Smitherman, D-Birmingham against the abortion ban bill.
"You are playing God, in my opinion, because youve already decided what needs to be done, Figures said to Republican senators last Tuesday. You all dont rule the world. I mean, you may think you do, but you dont.
Democrats are just idiots everywhere.
How ironic considering they want to play God and decide who lives and dies.
She’s worried about “declining tourism”. What a nasty joke this woman is.
You know if people are traveling to your state just to have an abortion like is done in Kansas, Colorado and new Mexico I...I...don’t know what to say! That is what you want to be known for? “Travel to our state we have late term abortion”? “Kill your baby in our state”? “Two come in but only one go home”?
What ever happened to “Fun for the whole family”?
No, the supreme court thinks they rule the world...
“There are consequences for every decision we make as legislators, and for every vote we cast there are ramifications,
The consequence is that the pre-born get to be born and enjoy life.
Alabama senator spitting in the wind
Half this nation is lost. I never would imagine a political party that has one of its cornerstone ideologies that of the horror of murder of the baby. If one can reconcile this,anything is acceptable. It is no wonder the left has murdered outright and through governance close to half a billion souls.
This poor man didn’t listen in Sunday School or perhaps attended a “tickling ears” church. What we need are God-fearing legislators. . .God is in control. . .He owns the world . . .His world. He makes the rules and we are to keep them. Unless people get a hold of this reality, we are doomed as a nation. It is just a matter of time. . .His time until we see the fate of this country.
I figured it was Doug Jones, but I guess hes smarter than that.
No, they are not idiots, they are murderers. They get a sexual thrill at the thought of murdering an unborn child.
Black Stalinist Demonrats supporting Black Genocide, film at 11.
State Senators, not the U.S. Senator.
Those who have supported this have a LOT of blood on their hands.
"[Vivian] Figures was one of three women on the Senate floor last week. She argued for hours [...]"
They are mostly idiots too. Being an idiot and a murderer arent mutually exclusive traits.
DemonCRAP Vivian Figures is probably in panic mode that her campaign money from the abortion lobby has just dropped out. You can’t reason with someone on the take from bribery.
