“The Most Restrictive Ban On Abortion In the Country”
Fight continues over AR’s wildly restrictive abortion law.
The Human Heartbeat Protection Act, touted by Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, called it “the most restrictive ban on safe and legal abortion in the country,” is not happening without a fight.
On Wednesday, Arkansas’ Republican-led House voted to override Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe’s veto of a bill that bans most abortions after 12 weeks. The State Senate upheld the ban Tuesday.
Abortion rights groups are now readying to fight the law.
