He went on the radio and bragged about his pro-life credentials after signing the law, so I think people are reacting to that as much as the actual law. The ban after 24 weeks is fairly reasonable imo, but bragging about signing the first ban in decades put a lot of people off.

Putting some spin on the ball to a core constituency after signing a pretty reasonable bill is out of bounds? That’s gonna disqualify a LOT of politicians if that’s the bar to clear

It’s a moot point really…. You won’t find a doctor that will do an abortion after 24 weeks for non medical reasons anyways.

That’s pretty much been the industry standard forever. But it still makes peoples brains explode when they ban late term abortions.

Late term abortions for non medical reasons are not a thing and never have been.

That’s not exactly true. The pro-choice Guttmacher Institute estimates ~12k per year, and most not bc of fetal abnormalities or danger to the mom. Small percent of overall abortions in the US, but still a fairly large number
