Pro-life legislation has been spreading throughout many states, sending left-wingers into a frenzy.
Heartbeat bills, 18-week bans and an almost-complete ban have been signed into law in eight states since 2018, while similar bills have been introduced in other states and are awaiting passage.
These laws sweeping the nation have made it clear that a pro-life cultural movement has gained momentum, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The bill passed in Alabama last Wednesday is the strongest one to date. Designed to challenge Roe v. Wade, the law prohibits abortion with few exceptions (not including rape and incest) and punishes any doctor convicted of performing an abortion with a maximum 99-year prison sentence.
HB 314 passed the Alabama House in April in a 74–3 vote and the Alabama Senate last Tuesday in a 25–6 vote.
The law has triggered Democrats, mainstream media, Hollywood and other left-minded individuals throughout the nation.
Actress Alyssa Milano called for a sex strike last Friday, tweeting, "Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on."

This week, she called on tweeters to make a thread by Heather Whaley "go viral." Whaley's thread shows the pictures of male lawmakers in Alabama and provides their handles so tweeters can leave messages for these lawmakers, like this one:

Democrat politicians like Elizabeth Warren made the same criticism. She tweeted, "Twenty-five men in the Alabama Senate passed this ban. Women across the country are watching and we will fight back."

Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, also made this criticism, with the addition of "white men": "Last night, 25 white men voted to take away women's right to safe, legal abortion. This is a terrifying time for women in Alabama & across the country, but we are demanding access to the healthcare we need."

Church Militant spoke with Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League, Founder of STOPP International and a talk show host on the Radio Maria Network, discussing this leftist meltdown and a few of the more misleading and distatestful responses.
"Dr. Wen has a problem with Democracy," Sedlak said. "The men and women of Alabama elect state senators in open elections. The Alabama senate has 35 members and, only eight of them are Democrats. The vote on the abortion bill was 25–6 in favor of the bill."
"Wen is upset that all 25 were men — however, of the 35 elected members of the senate, only four are women," he added.
Sedlak noted that Wen seems to want to dictate the gender of elected politicians. She has overlooked the fact that a woman introduced this legislation and a woman signed it into law. The congresswoman who introduced the bill was Terri Collins (R) and the governor who signed the bill into law was Gov. Kay Ivey (R), also a woman, Sedlak noted.
Governor Ivey signed the bill into law the day after it passed in the senate.
"The sponsors of this bill believe that it is time, once again, for the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit this important matter," said Ivey, "and they believe this act may bring about the best opportunity for this to occur."
While Warren, Wen and others have overlooked that women were involved from the beginning to the end of establishing this law, actor Jim Carrey has not.

Carrey is well aware of Ivey's gender. His tweet also shows his knowledge of aspiration abortion as well as many left-wingers' fondness for fantasizing about killing anybody who disagrees with them on moral and political topics. Recall Kathy Griffin holding President Trump's severed head in effigy and the play depicting Trump as Julius Caesar.
"Jim Carrey's tweet is absurd," said Sedlak. "He basically says that any pro-life man or woman should have been aborted prior to birth. Only one [word] for this picture and tweet — SICK!!"
"Sorry. Both men and women in this country understand abortion is murder and is wrong," he added.
