Blog: News Update – May 21, 2019

On May 15th, Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed the strictest abortion bill in the country into law. It bans all abortions unless a woman’s health is in ‘serious danger’.

The ‘work day’ is not confined to 8 hours. The job can be exhausting and the pay is non-existent. There really is no training or few reliable guidelines.
