Who needs to worry about the infiltration of Islamic Sharia Law when we have Christian Law being forced down women's throat by the beloved GOP, the party of rationality and clarity. These state representatives are literally depriving women of their constitutional right to choose because God
and donor activists told them it was the right thing.
So the GOP is not only pushing forward the most fringiest, extreme beliefs of its party but legislating them into state law. The longer term goal is (of course) overturning Roe V Wade on the hopes that the current conservative majority in the Supreme Court's will overturn a 40+ year old constitutional ruling. But they made sure to keep the "no rape or incest" provision anyway despite its moral depravity. A truly disgusting act of government.
The law makes it a crime for doctors to perform abortions at any stage of a pregnancy, unless a woman's life is threatened or in case of a lethal fetal anomaly. Doctors in the state face felony jail time up to 99 years if convicted. There are no exceptions for cases of rape or incest.
