Arkansas is about to outlaw abortions at 12 weeks--the most extreme ban in the country. An attack on Arkansas women is an attack on women everywhere. Tell Governor Mike Beebe to veto the bill now.

Arkansas is moments away from becoming the state with the most extreme abortion ban in the country.

The House just passed a bill outlawing abortions at 12 weeks of pregnancy. It will likely move quickly through the Senate and could land on Governor Mike Beebe's desk as soon as next week.

Stand in solidarity with Arkansas women—tell Gov. Beebe to veto the bill.

Plain and simple, Arkansas's 12-week ban on abortions is illegal, unconstitutional, and reckless. The legislature clearly has no interest in protecting the health, safety, or rights of women. Their only purpose is to dial the clock back 40 years on women's rights.

If passed, this extreme ban will either force women already facing tough economic circumstances to travel to a neighboring state to access constitutionally-protected health care or to turn to dangerous, clandestine options that could ruin or even end their lives.

Make no mistake. What's happening in Arkansas is not an isolated attack. We need Gov. Beebe to veto this bill and send a strong message to states throughout the country that this will not stand.

Last year, lawmakers in Ohio failed to pass early bans on abortion and, although similar measures have already been introduced this year in several other states, including North Dakota and Mississippi, no state has ever passed such a bill.

The Center for Reproductive Rights represents the sole provider of surgical abortion services in Arkansas and is committed to fighting this unconstitutional law if enacted.

Stand with us and lend your voice to Arkansas women.

Thanks, as always, for all you do,

Nancy Northup
President & CEO

Noted and signed with comment: " SB134 would take your state further toward mandating two classes of citizenship, first class citizenship for men, with control of their own lives and reproductive choices, and second class citizenship for women, whose lives and reproductive choices would be controlled by men."
Thanks, J.L.!
