This bill was drafted in response to the other Democratic bills passed that essentially legalized infanticide so that the SCOTUS can return to the Roe v Wade decision, nothing more.
Which needs to be revisited, in my opinion.
Medical science has advanced since Roe v Wade was put into effect.
So all the screaming by the left (who can't seem to understand simple things like biology) is just that... incoherent screaming.
Let's get the whole issue looked at again and see what comes of it.
What this law did, was in short, remove that privacy in the state, putting all of the population of that state at risk. Right now it is abortion, and the only real way to prevent such would be to have all medical records reviewed, those who are pregnant will have no privacy at all, as now the state will be able to go in and check, and if a woman loses that child, now is a criminal and will be held accountable by the law.
This new law specifically does not impose any criminal penalties on any woman for having an abortion. None. Zero. Having an abortion is still legal in Alabama.
Performing an abortion in Alabama is now a felony for any licensed medical professional.

If the Repubs wanna secure a loss in 2020, this is the path to go down. It's basically handing the Dems an election issue that the overall public sides with them solidly on. I guess it's too late actually. They already went there. Repub women are already dicey on Trump, this certainly wouldn't help that either.
That puts "undue burden" on the women of Alabama, seeking their constitutional right to access safe and affordable abortions.

If you're really against abortion you should go to a really crummy neighborhood in a high crime area where there are a lot of homeless people and hang out there for a while. This is what you want more of?

Killing children AFTER they were born is not going to fly in a lot of states.
Of course that's not happening, that's a flat out lie. Nobody is "executing" newborn babies (legally) in the USA.

You get out of life what you put into it. The key there is everyone hits the ground with the same potential as anyone else, but it is up to them to live their life and reach that potential or not.
You're advocating not even acknowledging the potential and simply killing them before they even have a chance to succeed or fail.
