Me So Horny: Bestiality May Soon Be Outlawed in Alabama (Gay Marriage Already Is)

by JOE DELMONACO
On Thursday, the Alabama Senate passed a bill making it a criminal offense to have sexual contact with animals.  The bill, SB 151, passed without debate and will next go before the Alabama House for passage.
 
In 2006, Alabama specifically banned same-sex marriage and the state maintains a “sodomy law” on its books despite the such laws having been ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in Lawrence v. Texas (2003).
 
In fact, 15 states including Alabama and the District of Columbia have no laws prohibiting or punishing sex with animals, while 14 of those same states forbid same-sex marriage.
 
The new Alabama statute carries exemptions for animal husbandry and for “conforming judging” purposes (whatever that means), and violation will be treated as “Class A Misdemeanor” with a penalty of not more than one year in jail or hard labor for the county and a fine of not more than $2000. 
 
“Sodomy” is also a Class A Misdemeanor, and carries the identical penalty.
The bill’s language originally included the “observation” of acts of bestiality, but that was stricken in the passed version.
After all, there really isn’t much to do in Montgomery on a Saturday night after a long week of legislating, is there?

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA:

Section 2. (a) A person commits the crime of bestiality if he or she:

(1) Knowingly engages in or submits to any sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal.

(2) Knowingly causes, aids, or abets another in engaging in any sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal.

(3) Knowingly permits any sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal upon premises under his or her control.

(4) Knowingly organizes, promotes, conducts, advertises, aids, abets, observes, or performs any service furthering an act involving sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal for a commercial or recreational purpose.

(b) Bestiality is a Class A misdemeanor.

(c) This act shall not apply to accepted animal husbandry practices, conformation judging practices, or accepted veterinary medicine practices.
