Alabama Abortion

The Alabama District Attorneys Association and state Sen. Lowell Barron announced Tuesday they'll support the bill covering crimes against unborn children from conception.

They have been supporting a bill that began after the 19th week of pregnancy.

Attorney general troy king, the Christian Coalition of Alabama and other groups had been pushing a bill that began at conception.

Barron says the two sides came together after the attorney general assured him the conception bill would be constitutional.

Alabama is one of 18 states where prosecutors can bring only one murder charge, rather than two, when a pregnant woman is killed.
