AL: National Women’s Organization Opposes HB 14

The question we are asking is an obvious one; “do laws such as this truly PROTECT children?” Alabama Representative Steve Hurst seems to think so.

But a national women’s organization is challenging the usefulness of such a law, asserting that it does nothing to increase community safety but seriously infringes upon the rights of registrants and those who are maintaining their innocence of any crime.

  1. Q

    How do these offensive people get positions of influence and power? From where do they come? How is it these un-American and heathen/barbaric ideas are taken seriously? I would call dangerous men and their ideas, like this one, ludicrous, but this is not funny! This is truly frightening. Representative Steve Hurst is obviously a very disturbed man.
