House overrides veto on Rapert's abortion bill

Posted By on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 2:14 PM

CORRECTION: There is no emergency clause in the bill, so it doesn't become law immediately. And as commenter "Sound Policy" points out, it's possible that an injunction will stop it from becoming law before the inevitable legal challenge is resolved.

The House voted 56-33-1 to override Gov. Beebe's veto of SB 134. Sen. Jason Rapert's bill, which bans abortions before 12 weeks, would go into effect this summer (90 days after the date the legislature adjourns sine die)

Call the lawyers.
