Alabama Representative Presents Proposal to Define Unborn as Persons, Ending Abortion

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — A bill recently presented in the Alabama legislature moves to acknowledge the unborn as persons, thus granting them the right to life and ending abortion in the state.

Rep. Ed Henry, R-Hartselle, is sponsor of H.B. 300, which would amend the Alabama Constitution to include the unborn under the definition of a person.

“The following amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, is proposed and shall become valid as a part thereof when approved by a majority of the qualified electors voting thereon … : The term ‘persons’ as used in the Code of Alabama 1975, shall include any human being from the moment of fertilization or the functional equivalent thereof,” it reads in part.

If the bill is approved, it would be placed on the state ballot in November.
