Liberal activists have filed a court challenge to an Arkansas law that would prohibit most abortions after 12 weeks if a fetal heartbeat could be heard.
The Arkansas state Senate voted Tuesday to override the Democratic governor's veto of a bill that would outlaw most abortions if the fetus is older than 12 weeks and if its heartbeat can be heard.
"The Arkansas law is one of the worst, but around the country, politicians are trying to eliminate access to abortion care and to interfere with a woman's ability to make the best decision for herself and her family," said Talcott Camp, deputy director of the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project. "Now is the time for all of us who care about women's health in this country to tell our elected officials that we won't stand for this political intrusion into our personal and private decisions."
