The law could also have a ripple effect across the country, Henderson said.
“It’s a real milestone not only in Alabama but across the country because, to our knowledge, this is the first time this approach has been used,” Henderson said. “And now that it’s successful in Alabama, we believe it will be a template or pattern for other states in the future to follow with the strong prospect of it holding up in federal court.”
This just makes me sick. As a woman and Alabama resident, I am so ashamed of our government (or lack thereof).
