Abortion Laws in Saudi Arabia More Forgiving Than in Alabama: Report

Abortion Laws in Saudi Arabia More Forgiving Than in Alabama: Report

Eoin Higgins, staff writer

Alabama women in need of abortion care can travel to Saudi Arabia for less restrictive rules if the southern U.S. state's recent anti-choice law is upheld in the courts.

That's according to a new study by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, which compared new laws in the U.S. to restrictions in Muslim-majority countries in southwest Asia and North Africa. All have more lenient laws around abortion than the Alabama law.

From the aarticle:

“In fact, the same person who drafted Alabama’s anti-abortion bill…also drafted its anti-Sharia law in 2014, arguing that ‘Sharia law violates women’s rights.’”

You can’t make this stuff up. These fetus fetishists don’t seem to know or care that their positions are self-evidently contradictory, like their being both anti-abortion and anti-contraception.

I’ve become more and more convinced that some human life is worth no more than most other animals.
