Arkansas passes law allowing your rapist or your father[1] to sue you to prevent an abortion.

[1]: To be fair, Arkansas is a Repubican-voting state. Those are ALMOST CERTAINLY the same person.

To be scrupulously correct, the text of the law states that IF the victim's father or husband is the rapist, AND is proven to be the one who caused the victim to be pregnant, IF they are convicted before the lawsuit is completed, they can't benefit from the lawsuit. The doctor still has to pay three times the cost of the procedure in statutory penalties, plus the rapist's legal fees.
