The Republican governor’s Ivy has six days to sign on this bill. Although, the bill will not be effective for six months unless it changes in the law.
Ivy has not publicly responded to this, although in the past she has already presented herself as an anti-abortion.
Ivy spokesman Lori Jones said in a statement: “As the bill is still in the legal process, the governor does not want to comment on it until it reaches them on their desk for a signature.”
Sen. Singleton is pointing out the bill language is very vague and doesn’t define what is considered an “attempt to abort”. He questions what thought process Sen. Chambliss put into this besides aiming to get it to SCOTUS. #HB314 #alpolitics
