Actor Jim Carrey has taken to Twitter to criticize abortion. Christian evangelist is not impressed.
The Hollywood star posted an image on Twitter in reference to Alabama’s new abortion laws in which he stated, “I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.”
Franklin Graham took to Facebook to protest the post, stating, “That’s sick. Did you see Jim Carrey’s tweet with his drawing showing AL Gov. Kay Ivey being “aborted”—sucked apart by an abortionist? Well it just shows that Jim Carrey and others do know beyond any doubt that abortion is the taking of another person’s life—murder.
“Wonder why Twitter doesn’t have a problem with Jim Carrey’s threatening message of hate?”
Just last week, the Alabama Senate has passed a law that says abortions should not be allowed under any circumstances, apart from at risk to the mother’s life.
Alabama’s move is in the opposite direction of New York and Georgia, who have recently extended the weeks in which it is legal to abort an unborn child.
The Senate voted 25-6 in favor of the law and was signed into law by Govenor Ms Ivey. The bill would take effect in six months.
The new law would mean that any doctor who supplies and performs an abortion would be punishable with a sentence of between 10 and 99 years in prison. The mother would not be punished.
In a statement, Alabama Governer Kay Ivey took to Twitter to announce, “Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act. To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God.”
