Restrictions Passed On Abortion In Alabama

Alabama lawmakers passed several bills as they wrapped up their session including new restrictions on abortion. One bill sent to the governor says abortion clinics can’t be within 2,000 feet of schools, which would force two clinics to close or move — one of them in Huntsville. The other law would ban a common procedure used in abortions done in the second trimester. The governor has until May 14th to decide whether to sign the bills. Also, lawmakers gave teachers a raise and passed a law that says cities and counties in Alabama cannot pass their own minimum wage.
