It really galls me that states keep trying to pass laws like the one in Arkansas which clearly violates women’s reproductive rights— it would have the effect of forcing two of that state’s three abortion clinics to close. We need a federal law that stops states from doing this once and for all!
The Arkansas state law is like one in Texas that was recently struck down by the Supreme Court. A Federal District Judge in Little Rock used the Supreme Court precedent from the Texas case to declare the Arkansas’ statue unconstitutional— but, state lawmakers got a court of appeals to reverse the district judge’s ruling which effectively keeps the Arkansas law on the books for now. The Supreme Court sent the case back to the federal district court in Little Rock for clarification.
We need a federal Women’s Reproductive Rights Act to once and for all put an end to these unconstitutional state laws.
