    So it looks like its a case of family members being able to block a womans abortion.

    If its the father that is sueing, they cannot sue for monetary damages, in cases of rape or incest.

    This is nothing to do with Trump.

    It will follow the pattern of other extreme state anti-abortion laws. It will be ruled unconstitutional by a federal district judge before it comes into force. The case will be appealed to a circuit court of appeals where there will be a majority decision ruling it unconstitutional. The State will appeal to the Supreme Court which will decline to hear the appeal.

    Those on the Supreme Court looking to overturn Roe v Wade are not looking for the most unpromising case on abortion in which to do so.

    Such click bait nonsense. The headline makes it sound like it's specifically rapists who can block abortions.

    Sounds fair enough that a husband should get a say on if there is an abortion.

    How can a court know if rape happened in a marriage or not? If there is rape in a marriage, how would the court know if that led to the pregnancy or consensual sex.

    How can this be acceptable on moral and also statistical overpopulation grounds?
