We have just learned that last Friday Governor Hutchinson signed House Bill 1394 by Rep. Charlene Fite.
This good, pro-life bill requires drug-induced abortions be performed in accordance with FDA protocols.
Right now drug regimens like RU-486 are not being done according to the methods approved by the FDA. This means drug-induced abortions are performed later in pregnancy than the FDA protocols allow; evidence also suggests failing to follow FDA protocols carries serious health risks for women undergoing drug-induced abortions.
H.B. 1394 ensures abortion-providers adhere to the FDA protocols. It will also help curtail the expansion of drug-induced abortion in Arkansas and potentially will save the lives of unborn children.
You may call the governor’s office to thank Gov. Hutchinson for signing this bill at (501) 682-2345.
