Arkansas could become the second state in the union to ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, similar to Texas’ life-saving bill that is being ferociously opposed by the pro-abortion left. 

Life News reports:

The Daily Mail reports state Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway, hopes to introduce the Arkansas Heartbeat Protection Act later this month. He said his bill is a “mirror” of the Texas law that has saved thousands of unborn babies since it went into effect Sept. 1.

Like the Texas law, Rapert said his bill will ban abortions on unborn babies once their heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy; it also includes “a civil cause of action” that allows private citizens to sue abortionists who abort unborn babies in violation of the law.

“It should be easy to pass the Texas-style heartbeat bill in our upcoming special session,” he said.

In a statement Tuesday, Rapert urged Gov. Asa Hutchinson to call a planned special legislative session so that they can pass the bill. Hutchinson, a pro-life Republican, recently said he would delay convening the session, in part, because he wants to wait for “Supreme Court guidance.”

“We have the opportunity to save the lives of unborn Arkansans today, all the governor has to do is call a special session of the legislature with the Heartbeat Bill on the agenda and we will pass it,” Rapert responded. “We don’t need to wait on the U.S. Supreme Court for guidance – Arkansas people want to stop abortions right now.”
