Now that the dam on unconstitutional first trimester abortion bills has broken, Kansas wants in on the action.
The governor of North Dakota has three days to sign a heartbeat ban into law, but that might not matter. Even among anti-choice legal experts, it’s a given that the bill won’t ever stop anyone from getting an abortion.
Arkansas recently approved the earliest abortion ban in the nation, but it may not hold that distinction for long.
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?
The GOP is highly concerned about fiscal responsibility, unless the money is being wasted defending unconstitutional abortion bans.
The governor will veto a ban on abortions after 20 weeks.
A likely 12 week abortion ban has almost cleared every hoop in Arkansas.
The Senate passes a 20 week ban, sending it back to the House then on to the governor.
The heartbeat ban may be stuck in committee. Why? It’s not strict enough.
