The majority of the U.S. Supreme Court that is prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade, potentially ending reproductive healthcare rights for pregnant people in America.

“The leaked United States Supreme Court opinion, if true, constitutes a shocking descent into precedent-defying judicial activism. If this draft becomes official in June, a newly passed Arkansas law will immediately outlaw access to abortions for Arkansas women and children who are victims of rape or incest,” said state Rep. Ashley Hudson.

Arkansas is one of 13 states with an abortion ban trigger law in place. This means that a SCOTUS decision overturning Roe v. Wade would automatically trigger an Arkansas law that effectively bans abortion and emergency contraceptive access in the state, including for victims of rape and incest. Overturning Roe v. Wade in Arkansas would ban access to emergency contraception pills.

This trigger law will criminalize doctors and medical professionals, by threatening up to ten years in prison for assisting in abortion services. Survivors – including minors – of sexual assault, even someone assaulted by a family member, would immediately be banned from seeking an abortion that would keep them in control of their future and their healthcare decisions.
