Arkansas Senate overrides veto of 12-week abortion ban
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Senate voted Tuesday to override Gov. Mike Beebe's veto of legislation that would ban most abortions from the 12th week of pregnancy onward.
The Republican-led Senate voted 20-14 to override the veto. The state House has yet to vote on the measure. Each chamber needs only a simple majority to override a veto in Arkansas.
Abortion rights proponents have said they will sue to block the 12-week ban if it's approved. Its 12-week standard is based on when a fetus's heartbeat typically can be detected through an abdominal ultrasound.
The Legislature last week overrode Mr. Beebe's veto of a ban on most abortions from the 20th week onward. That law is based on the disputed claim that fetuses can feel pain by then.
