Greg Reed (born 5 June 1965) is a Republican member of the Alabama Senate, representing the 5th District since 2010. He defeated Democrat Brett Wadsworth in the 2010 Midterm Elections, to replace Charles Bishop in the 5th District.

Reed made national news in February 2012 when he was questioned for his possible conflict of interest in being the vice-president of an ultrasound company while pushing a bill in the Alabama Senate that would require women seeking abortions to first have a trans vaginal ultrasound performed.[1] Reed stated that a conflict of interest did not exist because of his company's policy to not do business with abortion clinics. Reed continued to deny conducting business with abortion clinics even after written price quotes surfaced from an abortion provider by his company.[2]
