Over the past few weeks, we’ve been featuring pro-life bills that were proposed last legislative session, but were unfortunately defeated by pro-abortion legislators. This week, we’re going to highlight a bill by Sen. Jason Rapert.
Last week, in part two of our series, we talked about Rep. Gary Stubblefield’s bill (HB2159), which would have made clear that a pregnant woman has the right to defend her unborn child against criminal assault. This week, we’ll briefly highlight another great pro-life bill that didn’t pass last session—one by Rep. Bruce Westerman.
Last week, we kicked off a blog series called Pro-Life Legislation That Arkansas Needs and discussed SB113, a bill filed by Sen. Cecile Bledsoe (R-Rogers) that would have prevented public funds in Arkansas from being used for abortions under Obamacare. Our focus this week will be HB2159, the Pregnant Woman’s Protection Act, by Rep. Gary Stubblefield (R-Branch).
