The Arkansas Human Heartbeat Protection Act, sponsored by Sen. Jason Rapert, has passed the Senate Public Health Committee. If Rapert’s bill makes it through the entire legislative process, it will prevent abortion upon detection of a fetal heartbeat, except to save the life of the mother and in cases of rape or incest. Arkansas would then have the strongest pro-life law in the nation.
This bill will soon be considered by the full Arkansas Senate. Now is the time to call your state senator and ask him or her to support Sen. Rapert’s bill, the Arkansas Human Heartbeat Protection Act.
