Republicans—three white guys—introduced the first abortion ban bill of the session. (A fourth white guy, Rep. Kevin Crutchfield, appears to have withdrawn his name as a bill sponsor since yesterday.) The primary sponsor of the bill is Oath Keeper Rep. Keith Kidwell, and the bill is extreme, banning abortion from the time of conception. This is likely a gambit to make the next abortion ban that gets introduced this session — whether it bans the procedure at six weeks or 12 weeks — look "reasonable" by comparison.

The extreme stuff is beginning to float to the top.
