A critical pro-life bill is headed to the House Public Health Committee this week.
This past Tuesday, Representative David Meeks presented a bill to the Arkansas House of Representatives’ Public Health Committee in Little Rock. The bill, HB 1053, would have prevented Arkansans from being penalized for failing to purchase government-approved health insurance under the recently-passed federal healthcare law.
Sadly, the bill was voted down, 12 to 7. However, an interesting thing happened: Two Democrats voted for the bill, Sheilla Lampkin and Jeff Wardlaw.
Below is the final vote on HB 1053, a bill by Rep. David Meeks that would prevent Arkansans from being penalized for failing to purchase government-approved healthcare under the new federal healthcare law.
