Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she signed the state’s extreme abortion ban because it’s “a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God. ”
Every life, she says?
That was on May 15. On May 16, Alabama is set to execute Michael Brandon Samra for his role in a quadruple murder. Apparently Samra’s life is an asterisk on that “precious and a sacred gift from God” thing.
So were the lives of the six other people executed on Ivey’s sacred watch.
There are a few other asterisks on all life being precious and sacred in Alabama. The state has an infant mortality rate among the worst in the United States. Its firearm death and homicide rates are also strikingly high.
As for how sacred and precious children are held to be, you have only to look at the state’s education statistics to see what a damn liar Ivey is.
