(Worthy News) - Voters in Alabama and West Virginia passed constitutional amendments Tuesday that could result in abortion being outlawed if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

Alabama voters, by a margin of 59-41, approved an amendment to the state constitution that recognizes and supports “the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life.” It also states that “nothing” in the state constitution “secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.”

In West Virginia, voters passed an amendment, 52-48 percent, that says “nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.” [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More...) ]

  1. A hidden upside, so far, in this (because abortion will once again be illegal in the USA) is that all these same laws to protect/defend the right to live for the unborn will do the same for our aged and very disabled people already born. It greatly affects the rights and opportunities of those marked now for euthanasia, which as a rule is no longer talked about much. Some states have make assisted suicide legal, and that may stay on the books for some time. What it will do is once again make assisted involuntary "suicide" illegal again. Those victims will once more have "a leg to stand on" legally. They will have the rights they had on the day they were born and that too will be a great day.
