MONTGOMERY – Governor Kay Ivey released the following statement regarding today’s ruling by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, which affirmed a lower court decision striking down the Alabama Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Act:

“I was supportive of the bill when it passed through the Legislature in 2016, and I signed it as president of the Senate. I am disappointed in the court’s ruling today; however, we should not let this discourage our steadfast commitment to protect the lives of the unborn, even if that means taking this case to the U.S. Supreme Court. This ruling clearly demonstrates why we need conservative justices on the Supreme Court, and I look forward to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.”
