Planned Parenthood and ACLU Sue Alabama

Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union announced Friday that they have filed a federal lawsuit over Alabama's near-total abortion ban, which makes nearly all instances of performing an abortion a felony.
“The Alabama legislature has been pushing abortion care further and further out of reach for years with medically unnecessary and politically-motivated restrictions, and this extreme abortion ban shows us just how far they’ll go to push their anti-abortion agenda,” said Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, an ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project attorney, in a press release.
