Avoid Alabama: Life imprisonment because of pregnancy
Celebrities caution women around the US to guard against and avoid Alabama and Georgia because of their new abortion laws.
Popular actress Bette Midler on Twitter, urged all women to be afraid and in no case go to Alabama.
FEMALES!! Whatever you do #AvoidAlabama LIKE THE PLAGUE! It’s 2019, but it’s the 1500s in Ala. You may be pregnant, which you might not know, something— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) July 1, 2019
may happen, and you could end up on death row just for passing thru this moth-eaten state!
The fact is that the Alabama Senate adopted a bill to ban abortions at the beginning of the year, without exception, that is, even in the event of pregnancy after rape or incest, the fetus inside a woman has more rights to life than the "incubator" that bears it.
The creation of the law was based on the fact that the fetus in the womb of a pregnant woman is a human and no rape or incest can cancel this status.
In May, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Planned Parenthood were sued to block this bill, calling it unconstitutional and that would do more harm than good.
Also, Cher opposed the restriction of women's freedoms. She blamed the bill, according to which, if a woman had a miscarriage, she faces a prison sentence.

David French later denied all allegations of criminal prosecution in Georgia, stating: “While abortionists can be prosecuted for performing unlawful abortions — and an attacker can spend the rest of his life in jail for killing a woman’s unborn child — Georgia’s heartbeat bill cannot be used to prosecute a woman for ending her own pregnancy.”
Many Americans have already booed loud statements and asked to leave Alabama alone, although the followers on Twitter remained on the side of celebrities.
