Arkansas governor signs into law near-total abortion ban, challenging Supreme Court ruling

Just The News-

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has signed a law banning nearly all abortions in the state.

The Republican governor signed the law on Tuesday, banning all abortions in the state except those to save the life of the mother. The bill also outlaws abortions as a result of rape or incest.

Hutchinson said he signed the measure into law despite reservations about not having exceptions for rape or incest exceptions,  because of its “overwhelming legislative support and my sincere and long-held pro-life convictions,” according to the Associated Press. 

The governor also acknowledged the ban is in contradiction of binding precedents of the U.S. Supreme Court, but it is the intent of the legislation to set the stage for the Supreme Court overturning current case law.” read more

    SC refuses to consider it.

    …so the baby murdering goes merrily on as satan laughing spreads his wings…

  2. States should start legislating as a self defense…
    Federal legislation does not apply unless it has been approved by the voters of this state,
    As a self protection against the dictates of usurped federal authority.

  3. Amy Coney Barrett shudders.

    We’re about to find out, yet again, that you can’t trust affirmative action picks on the list that the old guard left you.

    We’ll see if she is as devout a Catholic as Biden and Pelosi.
