Alabama governor signs toughest US abortion ban into law

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on Wednesday signed the most restrictive abortion law in the United States, providing for a near-total prohibition, even in cases of rape and incest.

Under the new measure, expected to come into effect in six months, performing an abortion is a crime that could land doctors in prison for up to 99 years. 

Abortions would only be legal if the life of the mother is in danger or the fetus has a fatal condition.
