Abortion was the topic of the day for the liberal media and their network Sunday shows. But on ABC’s This Week, Republican Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson calmly and astutely pushed back on the hyperbolic screeds. Throughout his interview with fill-in host Martha Raddatz, he schooled her on conservative policy towards protecting the right to life, his goal to further support mothers and the children saved by his state’s abortion limitations, and he championed to keep the debate in the states.

Ahead of his interview, Raddatz spoke with Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) who proved she didn’t understand federalism. She decried America having a “patchwork of laws” around abortion and asked “how can that be[?]”

Well, that was the first thing that Hutchinson set out to confront. He argued “in terms of Arkansas law, our law simply expresses the will of the people of Arkansas, Senator Klobuchar really didn't address that. And the fact is, each state has differing views on where we should have on abortion restrictions.”
