A measure filed at the Arkansas Legislature on Wednesday could effectively legalize elective abortion in Arkansas.

H.B. 1684 by Rep. Denise Garner (D – Fayetteville) would permit abortions performed to protect the health of the mother.

Over the decades, courts have interpreted health exceptions like the ones in H.B. 1684 very broadly.

As a result, adding this kind of vague exception to a pro-life law makes it much easier to justify abortion and can effectively permit abortion on demand.

That is why Family Council opposes H.B. 1684.
