Alabama is one of a dozen states that today are protecting babies from aboritons following the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. And thanks to that abortion ban, the abortion centers in the southern state have stopped killing babies in abortions.
In Montgomery, Reproductive Health Services was one of those abortion businesses ending the lives of unborn children. But it stopped June 24th when Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said the state’s abortion ban is now in place and enforced.
“Both the federal district court and the plaintiffs recognized that there is no basis for a continued stay of the duly-enacted law in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization,” Marshall said that day. “Thus, Alabama’s law-making elective abortions a felony is now enforceable. Anyone who takes an unborn life in violation of the law will be prosecuted, with penalties ranging from 10 to 99 years for abortion providers.”
So what did the abortion company do?
It now has to provide what its name suggests: reproductive health services that do not kill children. So it offers contraception, pregnancy tests, and other sexual health services.
“For four hours a day, volunteers with the P.O.W.E.R. House are passing out free emergency contraception, pregnancy tests, condoms and other products outside of the now vacant facility on South Perry Street. It is a part of the group’s Pro-Choice Assistance Program,” one news report says.

Thankfully it legally can’t provide advice, information, financial support etc to help kill babies in abortions, though it is hoping to be able to do so in the future.
P.O.W.E.R. House tells WSFA 12 News it is consulting with lawyers to determine if they can legally aid those seeking abortions in other states.
“Everything is very muddy,” Raven added. “The laws are not very clear on what aiding and abetting actually means.”
Ironically, the former abortion business isn’t doing the one thing it should be: actually helping pregnant women and their unborn children with medical and other logistic support so they can give birth to a healthy baby. It seems more committed to abortion than assisting women in need.
Many other states are also protecting babies from abortions.
As LifeNews reported, the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, with a 6-3 majority ruling in the Dobbs case that “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion” — allowing states to ban abortions and protect unborn babies. The high court also ruled 6-3 uphold the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban so states can further limit abortions and to get rid of the false viability standard.
Chief Justice John Roberts technically voted for the judgment but, in his concurring opinion, disagreed with the reasoning and said he wanted to keep abortions legal but with a new standard.
Texas and Oklahoma had banned abortions before Roe was overturned and Missouri became the first state after Roe to protect babies from abortions and South Dakota became the 2nd. Then Arkansas became the third state protecting babies from abortions and Kentucky became the 4th and Louisiana became the 5th and Ohio became the 6th and Utah became the 7th and Oklahoma became the 8th and Alabama became the 9th. This week, Mississippi became the 10th and South Carolina became the 11th,Texas became the 12th with its pre-Roe law and Tennessee became the 13th.
Michigan, Wisconsin and West Virginia have old pro-life laws on the books but there is question about whether they are applicable and will be enforced.
Ultimately, as many as 26 states could immediately or quickly ban abortions and protect babies from certain death for the first time in nearly 50 years.
The 13 total states with trigger laws that would effectively ban all or most abortions are: Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.
“Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” Alito wrote.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences,” Alito wrote. “And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
This is a landmark day for the Pro-Life movement and our entire nation. After staining the moral fabric of our country for nearly 50 years, Roe v. Wade is no more.
Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer authored a joint dissent condemning the decision as enabling states to enact “draconian” restrictions on women.
Polls show Americans are pro-life on abortion and a new national poll shows 75% of Americans essentially agree with the Supreme Court overturning Roe.
