September 2016 Group Watch: AL AG Defends Abortion Laws

In a recent lengthy filing, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange argues that two abortion laws passed earlier this year should not be blocked by a federal judge. The legislature passed abortion-related bills that outlawed abortion clinics located within 2,000 feet of public schools as well as an abortion procedure that a  U.S. Supreme Justice described as “gruesome.”

Attorney General Strange argues that the law prohibits dismemberment abortion of a viable fetus. He further argues that providing a 2,000-feet barrier between abortion clinics and schools allow a reasonable distance between some of the protest activities that occur and young school children. Oral arguments in these matters are scheduled for early October in federal court in Montgomery.
