This afternoon the Arkansas House of Representatives passed a good, pro-life bill.
HB1076 requires a doctor administering an abortion-inducing drug (like RU-486) to be present during the procedure. The bill comes as evidence continues to mount that abortion-inducing drugs are not being administered in accordance with FDA protocols, and will help curtail the expansion of chemical abortions.
The bill passed the Arkansas House of Representatives with 83 members of the House voting for the bill; 4 voting against the bill; 7 representatives not voting on the bill; and 6 members voting “Present.”
If your representative voted for HB1076, be sure to contact him or her to say “Thank you.”
The bill now heads to the Arkansas Senate. Please be sure to contact your state senator, and ask him or her to vote for pro-life bill HB1076. You can leave a message for your senator at the Arkansas Capitol Building by calling (501) 682-2902.
