Arkansas Swings For The [Of]Fence,
Passes Ban On Abortions After 12 Weeks

AP via TPM (hence the very short quote):
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas now has the nation’s most restrictive abortion law — a near-ban on the procedure from the 12th week of pregnancy — unless a lawsuit or court action intervenes before it takes effect this summer.
Their legislature overrode a Democratic governor's veto. Gov. Mike Beebe correctly pointed out that this law will cost the state a fortune to defend, and will probably fall anyway in court after a great waste of taxpayers' money.

Twelve weeks, eh? At this rate, soon enough, some state will pass a law forbidding abortion after one day. Hell, they'll pass a law requiring every fertile woman to get pregnant. Or will the ACLU's test of this law... already announced... become the case the Roberts Court needs to overthrow Roe v. Wade?
