On Thursday the Arkansas House Judiciary Committee passed S.B. 474.

This good bill by Sen. Charles Beckham (R – McNeil) and Rep. Jimmy Gazaway (R – Paragould) prohibits fraud and abuse in fertility treatments. The bill previously passed the Arkansas Senate with strong support.

S.B. 474 ensures people performing fertility treatments are honest, ethical, and abide by principles of informed-consent.

It’s a good bill that helps support and protect bioethics in Arkansas.

The bill now goes to the entire Arkansas House of Representatives for consideration.
