Alabama’s interim Senator Doug Jones has been officially condemned by the Alabama State Senate because of his support for late-term abortion. The resolution condemning him comes in response to Jones voting against the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would have prohibited abortion after the 20th week of a pregnancy.
Republican State Sen. Bill Hightower,who sponsored the measure, explained the reasoning in a public statement:
“Senator Jones owes the people of Alabama an explanation for turning his back on a campaign promise he made just a few short months ago,” Hightower’s statement read. “More importantly, Senator Jones needs to explain why he would turn his back on the basic humanity of an individual’s right to life. At 20 weeks in the womb, it is not about a choice, it is about an innocent little baby’s right to live.”
Hightower went on to explain that the science is clear, “at 20 weeks of pregnancy, a child has a heartbeat, a child feels pain.”
During his campaign for U.S. Senate, Jones had stated he was mostly opposed to late term abortion, stating “the law for decades has been that late-term procedures are generally restricted except in the case of medical necessity. That’s what I support.”
His vote in opposition to a ban on late term abortion in the U.S. Senate clearly shows he has fallen back on his word. That was one of the main points made in the condemnation resolution.
Doug Jones was elected as the interim Senator for Alabama to fill the vacancy left by Jeff Sessions when he joined the Trump Administration as Attorney General. Jones was considered a long-shot candidate prior to the Republican candidate, Judge Roy Moore being smacked with accusations of child sexual assault. Jones had virtually zero chance at winning before the accusations were dropped on Moore.
Judge Moore has strongly denied those claims made against him, and has recently filed a lawsuit against his accusers in order to clear his name.
WATCH LIVE: CPAC Polling Reveals President Donald Trump Dominating 2024 GOP Primary
This is still Trump’s party.
Polling released by McLaughlin and Associates during CPAC on Sunday reveals that President Trump is easily winning a tentative 2024 Republican Primary, should be choose to run.
President Trump would stand to win 55% in respective state primaries, according to citizens at the conservative conference who were asked about 2024.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, thought of by some as a successor to Trump, garnered 21% of the vote. DeSantis was also the winner of a poll that asked voters who they’d pick if Trump weren’t running, securing a plurality of 43%.
Pollster Jim McLaughlin presented the data on stage at CPAC, revealing the Republican Party to be wholly Trump’s party in the aftermath of his first term in office and the 2024 election.
Nikki Haley, a favorite of the old Republican establishment, lacks grounding in a tentative 2024 primary without Trump, running well behind Donald Trump Jr. and the frontrunner DeSantis.

Trump is scheduled to speak at CPAC within the hour. It’s still unclear if the 45th President will seek to become the second in US history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office, following Democrat Grover Cleveland who served in the late 19th century. Trump has suggested he’s interested in running, but has expressly declined to announce a comeback presidential campaign thus far, stating it’s too early for campaign announcements.
