HB 300 would redefine the term “persons” as used in the Code of Alabama to include “all humans from the moment of fertilization.”

The bill would ultimately ban abortion, birth control pills, IUDs, and emergency contraception. In addition, it would eliminate certain medical choices for women, including some cancer treatments, in vitro fertilization, and might lead to investigation and prosecution of women who miscarry to determine if their own actions caused the death.

STATUS

Similar to SB 414, which failed to pass in 2014.

Similar to SB 205, which failed to pass in 2013.

Similar to a trio of bills introduced in 2011, all of which failed to pass.
