Elective abortions are now illegal in Alabama, state Attorney General Steve Marshall announced late Friday, hours after a historic ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court which overturned Roe v. Wade. Marshall filed an emergency motion with a federal court to lift an injunction that had been blocking a 2019 state law prohibiting most abortions. U.S. District Court Judge Myron Thompson, who blocked the law in 2019, responded by dissolving the injunction, ruling that the legal underpinning for it "no longer exists." Marshall says that means Alabama's law making elective abortions a felony is now enforceable. "Anyone who takes an unborn life in violation of the law will be prosecuted, with penalties ranging from 10 to 99 years for abortion providers," Marshall said.
