Reproductive rights advocates filed a brief last week telling the Roberts Court to turn away a request to reinstate an Arkansas law that bans abortions at 12 weeks’ gestation.
Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed a lawsuit in federal court to block Arkansas’ 12-week abortion ban.
The question now is whether the ban will go into effect in June, or if it is enjoined while the legal challenges occur.
The governor has used the same argument to veto the even more restrictive 12-week ban. Will the legislature override him anyway?
A likely 12 week abortion ban has almost cleared every hoop in Arkansas.
Rapert knows his heartbeat ban is constitutionally sound. He just can’t tell you who told him so.
