Rep. Collins-Smith has filed a bill to opt Arkansas out of funding abortion under the recently-passed federal healthcare law.

HB1872 accomplishes what SB113—which was filed earlier this session—would have: It ensures Arkansas won’t be using any tax money to pay for abortion.

We’ve been saying for some time now that the House Public Health Committee needs to hear from you about pro-life legislation. This bill is so important, however, that we’re simply asking everyone to go ahead and call their representatives.

Call your state representative at (501) 682-6211, and ask him or her to support HB1872.

It’s important that every member of the Arkansas House know there’s tremendous support for pro-life legislation. Please call your representative at the Capitol in Little Rock today.
