This afternoon the Arkansas House of Representatives passed a good, pro-life bill that bans some abortion procedures.

H.B. 1032 generally prohibits D&E and sharp curettage abortion procedures in which a living, unborn baby is violently dismembered. The bill passed the House Public Health Committee last week. Today it was passed by the entire House of Representatives.

From here the bill will go to the Arkansas Senate. You can read the text of H.B. 1032 here.
