Thursday, per the Washington Post, the bill "appeared to pass" 23 to 6 in the Alabama Senate before being tabled when a fight erupted as Democratic lawmakers called for a roll-call vote. The catalyst for Thursday's arguing was an amendment in the current version of the bill regarding exceptions for rape and incest cases.
The ridiculous bill in question, supported by Republicans, would make performing an abortion procedure a felony-punishable offense carrying a sentence of up to 99 years behind bars. Debate on the bill has now been pushed back to next week.
Also on Thursday, the Alabama Senate "hurriedly" approved a medical marijuana bill 17 to 6. That bill, which includes a two-doctor recommendation caveat, now heads to the House of Representatives.
