Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Sunday that he believes abortion laws should be up to the states.

Arkansas plans to ban abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned, although Hutchinson believes that it should be the authority of the state not the federal government.

“I think that's inconsistent with what we've been fighting for for decades, which is that we wanted the Roe vs. Wade reversed and the authority to return to the states," Hutchinson told ABC's "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz.

"So, as a matter of principle, that's where it should be," he added.

Hutchinson argues that the national abortion ban goes against states having a say about the role of states.

"If you look at a constitutional or a national standard, that goes against that thrust of the states having prerogative," Hutchinson said.

"And secondly, I think there's some constitutional issues of a national standard as well as to what is the authority of the Constitution to enact that," he added.

The Supreme Court may be  set to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which has been in place for 50 years, according to a document leak obtained by Politico. A decision is decided to be expected by June.
