This afternoon the Arkansas House of Representatives passed a good, pro-life bill.
H.B. 1578 by Rep. Lundstrum updates Arkansas’ informed-consent requirements regarding abortion. It improves the information a woman is given prior to an abortion, and it implements a 48-hour waiting period before an abortion, giving her more time to consider abortion, its risks, and its alternatives.
We believe this good bill will save the lives of unborn children by ensuring women know their options and the alternatives to abortion.
The bill passed the Arkansas House of Representatives today, with 75 representatives voting for it; 1 representative voting against it; and 24 representatives not voting. Click here to see how your representative voted.
