Law’s Jonathan Entin weighs in on the constitutionality of Arkansas’ new abortion law

Arkansas’ tough new abortion law on shaky legal ground, experts say

The Christian Science Monitor: Arkansas legislators recently adopted a law that makes most abortions illegal after 12 weeks of pregnancy, but most experts agree the bill likely will be struck down in court. “It is very clear this law is unconstitutional under current doctrine,” said law professor Jonathan Entin. “A 12-week limit is well before viability, and the Supreme Court has consistently said the Constitution protects a right to a pre-viability abortion.”
