Pregnant women could end up on “death row” by merely passing through Alabama due to the state’s abortion law, Bette Midler warned in an unhinged rant on Monday.
The left-wing actress posted the dire warning to her 1.64 million Twitter followers Monday, urging pregnant women to avoid Alabama “LIKE THE PLAGUE!”
“FEMALES!! Whatever you do #AvoidAlabama LIKE THE PLAGUE!” Bette Midler warned. “It’s 2019, but it’s the 1500s in Ala. You may be pregnant, which you might not know, something may happen, and you could end up on death row just for passing thru this moth-eaten state!”

The Alabama Senate passed what has been dubbed as the nation’s “strictest abortion” law earlier this year with a 25-6 vote. It essentially extends personhood to a child in the womb and was signed by Republican Gov. Kay Ivey in May. It outlines strict consequences for doctors who perform abortions, making it a felony in virtually all cases, unless the pregnancy is deemed to pose “a serious health risk” to the mother. There is no exception for cases or rape or incest, which account for a very small number of abortions. The bill’s co-sponsor Rep. Terri Collins (R-Decatur) said that an exception would have conflicted with their personhood argument.
What planet is Midler living on?
