SenateChambersThis afternoon the Arkansas Senate passed a good, pro-life bill.

House Bill 1394 by Rep. Fite requires abortion doctors to follow FDA protocols when performing drug-induced abortions. The bill protects women from unsafe abortion practices, and it prevents abortion doctors from performing drug-induced abortion later than the FDA protocols allow.

All told, 26 senators voted for the bill; 5 senators voted against it; and 3 senators did not vote. You can see how your senator voted here.

The bill now goes to Governor Hutchinson to be signed into law.

Jerry is the founder and president of Family Council. He began Family Council in 1989 after a successful effort to amend the Arkansas Constitution to prevent the use of public funds for abortions. He and his wife reside in Little Rock. They have four sons.
