Think Conservatives Care About Women? Read This: Arkansas passes law allowing rapists to sue victims who want an abortion

Just Another Day in Trump's America

Britain's Independent Reports News American Press Ignores.

The War Against Women has taken another nasty turn,

A pregnant woman's husband will have the power to stop her from having an abortion, even in cases of spousal rape, under a new law introduced in the US state of Arkansas.  
Most second trimester abortions will also be banned by Act 45 - the Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act - which will make it possible for husbands to sue doctors who carry out abortions for civil damages, or get an injunction to block the termination.

It gets worse.

D&E procedures are the safest way for women to end their pregnancies after 14 weeks of gestation, according to the American Medical Association.
But the medical procedure will now become a felony in the southern state, punishable by a $10,000 fine or six years in prison.
This is despite 683 of Arkansas's 3,771 abortions being D&E in 2015, according to the state's health department.  

So let's sum this up. If the "We hate Women" caucus in Arkansas has its way a rapist can sue his victim and even if he losess the woman who is trying not to have his baby cannot undergo the safest procedure. That's what happens when so called religious folks gain control.
