The Republican-controlled state Senate voted 25-6 to ban dilation and evacuation, the safest abortion procedure in the second trimester (used in 95 percent of all second-trimester abortions in the United States), AP reports.

The measure now goes to Governor Hutchinson, who has said he will sign it into law.

And then come the court challenges.
