Alabama's abortion ban seems written for controversy rather than for life

The Pro-Life movement has, throughout the years, been plagued by “perfectionist” anti-abortion positions. State-level Right To Life groups have come out opposed to abortion bills that didn’t go far enough. A few years back, Georgia Right To Life opposed a 20-week abortion ban on those grounds.

Likewise, that seems to be what Alabama is doing, but it’s looking less like a case of genuine Pro-Life sentiment and more like “We’re gonna piss y’all off and try to win the Supreme Court now that Trump has put good people on it!”

I don’t even think this bill, if it’s signed into law, makes it to the Supreme Court. I think it will get struck down in circuit court and the Supreme Court just won’t take it up. It’s not the fight they want to have because it’s so farcical.
