A new law in Alabama that will ban abortion in almost all circumstances is likely to impact on the state’s LGBT+ community, local campaigners warn. The Transgender Law Center said in a statement that reproductive healthcare is an issue directly related to the trans community and if the state enters it to criminalize abortions, nobody knows how far the state may go. “Many LGBTQ people rely on abortion care and they deserve access to safe and legal abortions in the state they live in.” “Many LGBTQ people rely on abortion care and they deserve access to safe and legal abortions in the state they live in,” GLAAD tweeted. The group president Sarah Kate Ellis added that each time women’s rights are brought under threat, the same happens to LGBT rights. Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin slammed the new laws in a tweet: “Last night, an all-male majority of lawmakers in the Alabama Senate effectively banned abortion outright. This is wrong, shameful, and un-American.”
