The Newest Abortion Ballot Initiative
After securing the enshrinement of abortion in Ohio, activists are turning toward Arkansas. Will they be successful in overturning this state’s numerous protections for the unborn?
From Breitbart. Activists are working to put abortion on the ballot in Arkansas, adding to a growing list of states that may be voting on the issue in 2024.
A non-profit called For AR People announced the creation of a new group on Monday called Arkansans for Limited Government, a ballot question committee that will support the “Arkansas Reproductive Healthcare Amendment.”
The proposed amendment would “prevent the state from restricting access to abortion within 18 weeks of conception, in cases of rape or incest, in the event of a fatal fetal anomaly, or when abortion is needed to protect the pregnant female’s life or health,” according to the organization. Abortion is currently completely outlawed in the state except to save the life of the mother. …
Rose Mimms, executive director of Arkansas Right to Life, said the initiative is concerning and “broad.” …
The state attorney general is reviewing the proposed amendment, according to local media. If approved, the group would be allowed to move forward with signature collection.
“According to the Secretary of State’s office, since this is a proposed constitutional amendment, 90,704 signatures would need to be collected to put this on the November 2024 ballot,” the report states.
If the measure makes it onto the ballot in 2024, it would require a simple majority to pass.
