On Monday the Arkansas Senate passed S.B. 6 by Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway) and Rep. Mary Bentley (R – Perryville).

This good bill prohibits abortion except when the mother’s life is at risk.

If enacted, S.B. 6 would save thousands of unborn children every year and give the federal court system an opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade and other pro-abortion decisions.

Family Council fully supports this good measure.

This is an opportunity for Arkansas to be a real leader in the effort to end abortion in America.

Many people have been saying for almost fifty years that abortion should be illegal. The time has come for us to make it so.

S.B. 6 now goes to the Arkansas House of Representatives, where it likely will be referred to the Public Health Committee.

Below is a breakdown of how the Arkansas Senate voted on S.B. 6.
