Tuesday’s oral arguments in legal challenges to two pre-viability abortion bans show anti-choice advocates are more empowered than ever to gut constitutional protections for legal abortion.
Kansas legislators are likely to debate legislation that could effectively ban abortion as early as three weeks’ gestation.
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.
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.
The heartbeat ban may be stuck in committee. Why? It’s not strict enough.
Rapert knows his heartbeat ban is constitutionally sound. He just can’t tell you who told him so.
While parts of the country were being blanketed by snow this weekend, the North Dakota legislature kept right on plowing ahead through a massive list of abortion bans and restrictions.
The ban has been tabled. Could that be a positive sign?
