On Wednesday, the Arkansas Legislature approved legislation to ban nearly all abortions. However, the governor, Asa Hutchinson, has shown reservations about signing it. 

“The majority-Republican House voted 75-18 for the bill, which bans all abortions except those to save the life of the mother in a medical emergency. The bill, which passed the Senate last month, does not include any exceptions for rape or incest,” according to Fox News. 

In at least 13 other states, outright abortion bans have been proposed to force a case on the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion-on-demand. 

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Mary Bentley, said, “It’s time for this decision to be overturned in the Supreme Court.” 

The National Right to Life Committee has reportedly not taken a position on the bill, though its state affiliate and other anti-abortion groups in Arkansas are behind the pro-life measure.

“It’s pro-life legislation, and I support pro-life legislation,” Hutchinson said shortly before the House vote. He reportedly has five days, not including Sunday, after the bill reaches his desk to sign it or reject it before it becomes law without his signature.

I am in agreement 100% I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING AND PRAYING TO STOP ABORTION SINCE 1973 AND I BOUGHT A BOOK ABOUT ABORTION SHOWING PICTURES THE HORRORS OF IT. I WOULD SHOW IT TO EVERYONE I CAME IN CONTACT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS MANY CHRISTIANS. THEY WOULD TURN AWAY IN DISGUST BUT DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO STOP IT. DO YOU THINK THEY THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO EVER COME TO THIS RIPPING BABIES FROM MOTHERS WOMBS TO 3 OUT OF 6 MURDER THROUGH ABORTION. I DID IF WE DIDN;T STAND UP TO IT. THE LORD IS REJOICING IN THE HEAVENS WITH ARKANSAS SON JASON RAPERT STANDING UP BEING VOICE FOR THE UNBORN INNOCENT. WATCH THIS STATE WILL BLESSED TEN FOLD. WE MUST PRAY THE GOV SIGNS IT IN TO LAW!! AS our LORDS word conveys HIS heart for us those HE has created it is now revered again as precious in HIS sight Ps 139:13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful I know this full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, …16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. i was only 18 yrs old when I fought back with my book of abortion. If my mother were pregnant today she would have been encouraged to abort me too because of my heart defect. My parents were told I would not survive at birth. But our LORD had HIS plans for me that no doctor no defect would keep me from fulfilling for HIS kingdom glory and honor. My cardiac team here at Mayo Clinic have told me prayers are keeping me alive and can’t believe what I have accomplished with all my medical obstacles. I had a career as a Speech and Language Therapist, have published two children’s books, starting my next one. Have had privilege to pray for leaders in their offices and been a leader in my state for National Day of Pryer. Put the most precious gift to me has been knowing our LORD in a most profound way. I have been blessed with two children of my own. I lost three before our son was born. I saw his heart beat at 18 days in my womb. It was a beautiful sight to see. Our LORD has the final call on everything HIS plans shall not be stopped. HE is the ALMIGHTY the KING of KINGS! As in HIS word Ps 46:10 Be still and know that I am GOD, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
