On May 15, 2019, Governor Ivey signed bill HB314 into law. The bill is not set to go into effect until 6 months after it has been signed; however, on Friday, May 24, 2019, the ACLU of Alabama filed a lawsuit in conjunction with the national ACLU and Planned Parenthood asking a court to block the law from taking effect.
This means abortion is still legal in Alabama and will stay legal for the foreseeable future.
