Arkansas Senate Approves Plan to Ban Most Abortions

The Arkansas’ Senate today has approved a proposal to ban abortion in the state if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns its landmark 1973 decision legalizing the procedure nationwide.

The State Senate on Thursday voted in favor 29-6 to ban all abortions, except for medical emergencies if the Roe v. Wade decision is overturned of the U.S. Constitution is amended to prohibit the procedure.

With President Trump’s two new supreme court nominees, Arkansas is one of five states that have similar trigger laws in place.
