Republican State Senator Shadrack McGill of Alabama has trouble conceiving of the fact that we don't live in a theocracy. McGill supports the "Alabama Religious Freedom Amendment," which legalizes displaying the Ten Commandments on state property and public schools. He also supports a "personhood" bill stating that life begins at conception. One of McGill's reasons for denying women's constitutional right to choose is his concern about the afterlife of the aborted fetus:
“Just based on the Scripture alone, the Psalm that talks about God knowing us before he placed us in our mother’s womb, is enough for me to know that that is a life inside of a mother,” said McGill, R-Macedonia.
“So my question concerning aborted babies is, where do they go, heaven or hell? I just want to know what [people’s] perspective is.”
