Late 2021-MAR:
Strict abortion law passed in Arkansas:

Arkansas Governor, Asa Huchison (R), signed law that has produced a nearly total abortion ban in his state.

His personal position on aborton is that all should be banned unless: caused by rape, caused during Incest, or needed to preserve the life of the mother.

He explained on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, 2021-MAR-21 that the law was designed so that the U.S. Supreme Court would eventually be given the opportunity to review their Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, and redefine precisely which abortions would be permitted across the U.S. in the future.

The law, SB6, is referred to as the "Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act." It bans all abortions unless one is needed to preserve the life of the mother.

Earlier, Governor Huchison wrote:

"I will sign SB6 because of overwhelming legislative support and my sincere and long-held pro-life convictions. SB6 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." (1)

Alexis McGill Johnson, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fundsaid in a statement:

"This is politics at its very worst. At a time when people need economic relief and basic safety precautions, dismantling abortion access is cruel, dangerous, and blatantly unjust. The same politicians who are fixated on controlling our reproductive health care have spent the past year pushing back on scientific guidelines that will keep people safe and alive during a pandemic. Their hypocrisy is clear as day. Our patients deserve better. Planned Parenthood will work alongside its partners to fight this attack on our rights and freedoms." (1)

The bill was passed by the Senate 27 to 7, and by the House 76 to 19.
