Alabama boycott builds as states retaliate against abortion law

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - A movement to boycott Alabama over its near-ban on abortion gained momentum Thursday as officials in Maryland and Colorado called for economic retaliation and online flyers urged people not to buy anything in, or from Alabama.

A day after the southern state passed the country’s most restrictive abortion law, Maryland’s Democratic Comptroller Peter Franchot said he would advise his state’s $52 billion pension fund to divest from Alabama, and urged other states to follow suit.

Colorado’s Democratic Secretary of State Jena Griswold called for a boycott of Alabama and urged the Election Center, an organization that trains election officials from across the country, to move out of the state.

The hashtag #BoycottAlabama gained momentum online, with activists calling for boycotts of products ranging from Mercedes-Benz cars to broiler chickens that are produced in Alabama.

So, what about the born babies?

Dear Alabama,

Congratulations on saving the unborn babies. Now, what are you going to do about the born babies? I eagerly await hearing about your Legislature and governor voting to expand spending for day care and early childhood education to ensure these born babies have the best chance at a successful life. And, of course, there will be need for more health care, since Alabama is fourth worst in the nation for infant mortality. (Does the state hold itself responsible for those born babies’ deaths?) And there will be more need for mental health care to help those born babies’ mothers work through their trauma, especially if the born babies are the product of rape or incest, but also to help process that in the land of the free, the state of Alabama has told them they must be mothers.

Yes, well done, Alabama. But now put your money where you mouth is, the true measure of commitment and conviction in this country.
