‘A Sad Day for The Unborn in Arkansas’

Rapert laments vote to deny consideration of prolife legislation

CONWAY, Ark. – Arkansas Lieutenant Governor candidate and State Senator Jason Rapert (R-Conway) today released the following statement after the Senate voted to deny extension the special session of the General Assembly to consider the Arkansas Human Heartbeat and Human Life Civil Justice Act:

“This is a sad day for the unborn in Arkansas. The legislature had the ability to protect unborn Arkansans today and not wait for months for the United States Supreme Court to render its opinion. It is unfortunate that the political will needed from the legislative branch to protect unborn Arkansans from the crime against humanity that is abortion was ceded to the political agenda of the Governor.”
