Alabama’s new law mandating an almost blanket ban on abortion, the strictest in the United States, was passed by this group of exclusively white, male politicians.

Of the 27 Republicans, all white men, that dominate the 35-seat Alabama senate, 25 voted to pass the bill late on Tuesday.

5. A California friend recently shared a photo she took of a sign on the door of

a public bathroom in Laurel, Mississippi. It reads, "Wash your hands and say your prayers, because Jesus and germs are everywhere."
