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).
Over the next several weeks, we will feature a weekly post that briefly discusses a pro-life bill that Arkansas needs to move the cause forward. All of the bills we’ll focus on were defeated during this year’s legislative session in the House Public Health Committee. Let’s start with one of the highest profile bills of the session, SB113.
