Yesterday the Arkansas Legislature passed S.B. 149 by Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway).

This good bill prohibits abortion in Arkansas if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court or by a federal constitutional amendment.

The bill received 72 votes in the Arkansas House of Representatives yesterday, and 29 votes in the Arkansas Senate last week.

Out of 135 state legislators, only 26 lawmakers voted against the bill; eight representatives in the Arkansas House did not vote one way or the other on the bill.
