Pro-Lifers are hopeful because on Monday, February 22, 2021, the Arkansas Senate passed S.B. 6 that would ban abortions in the Natural State. Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway) and Rep. Mary Bentley (R – Perryville) were the key sponsors of the legislation that the state Senate approved on a 27-7 vote.
Life News reports that the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act will ban abortions unless it’s to save a mother’s life and the bill now heads to the state House, which is expected to approve it as well.
Today the Arkansas Senate passed S.B. 6 by Sen. Jason Rapert and Rep. Mary Bentley prohibiting abortion in Arkansas. If enacted, this good bill would save thousands of unborn children and give our courts an opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade. #arleg #arpx pic.twitter.com/dyFq6SoXPK— Family Council (@FamilyCouncil) February 22, 2021
