Alabama legislator Clyde Chambliss accidentally spilled the beans. When asked about fertility treatments that involve fertilizing eggs, selecting the strongest embryos for implantation and destroying the rest, he assured voters that Alabama’s anti-abortion measure won’t apply. In other words, they don’t actually care about “life” they care about forcing a woman to fulfill her god-given role.

The government cannot compel you to give blood or bone marrow, even to save the life on an innocent. You cannot harvest organs from a corpse without express written permission to do so even if it would save other lives. There is no other situation in which an American is forced to put someone else’s life before their own body autonomy.
