Televangelist Pat Robertson opposes Alabama's abortion law as 'extreme'

1 post in this topic


Christian televangelist Pat Robertson became an unexpected opponent of Alabama's new abortion law that bans nearly all abortions in the state, calling the measure "extreme."


Republican Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law Wednesday a bill that bans abortions except in the cases where one is required to save the mother. It does not have any exceptions for rape and incest. The law takes effect in six months.

"I think Alabama has gone too far," Robertson said on "The 700 Club." "It's an extreme law, and they want to challenge Roe vs. Wade, but my humble view is that this is not the case we want to bring to the Supreme Court because I think this one will lose.

"The Alabama case, God bless them, they're trying to do something, but I don't think that's the case that I'd want to bring to the Supreme Court," Robertson reiterated later.


A losing battle?
