Yesterday the Arkansas House of Representatives passed H.B. 1428. This good, pro-life bill makes it clear abortion clinics must be inspected at least annually and that the Department of Health will close an abortion clinic that fails inspection.
It also closes a loophole in Arkansas’ informed-consent law regarding abortion.
The bill now goes to the Arkansas Senate for consideration.
Below is a breakdown of the vote.
