The states of Alabama and West Virginia voted on Tuesday to acknowledge unborn babies' right to life. The right to an abortion, and funding, has no been withdrawn.

Alabama's amendment claims to recognize the sanctity of unborn life, and Oregon narrowly escaped having the same bill implemented.

Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa. The constitution in Alabama and West Virginia now does not protect a woman's right to abortion anymore.

The only time the state would provide funding for the procedure, would be in the case of a medical emergency, rape or incest.

Back in the seventies, the Supreme Court ruled that States are not allowed to prevent a woman from the right of an abortion.

But many citizens believe that with the Republican presence in the Supreme Court, that Roe v. Wade ruling may be numbered.

This caused an outcry to ring through most of America. Voters are not happy about this law being passed and fear that the consequences may be dangerous.

One user said on Facebook both West Virginia and Alabama have the lowest percentage of college graduates and the poorest rated public education system.

The user is not surprised by the ruling as the citizen of those states "think they are more qualified to make moral decisions for others than they are."

Another user said deaths from "septic pregnancies" would now skyrocket, while a citizen from a neighboring state said:

"It looks like we'll be volunteering to help WV women who need us if the time comes."

A year ago, House Republicans passed a bill that bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The reasoning behind the bill was to “help to facilitate a culture of life.”

The medically unsupported claim that after 20 weeks of pregnancy fetuses can feel pain was a base of the bill. At the same time, Congress failed to extend a federal children’s health program that expired at the end of September.

With these two facts combined, American children seem to be under the health care pressure because 9 million children from low-income families lost their insurance coverage.
