Are they going to make all women between the ages of 10 and 55 undergo tests when they cross state lines and when they come back again to be sure they haven't gone to another state for an abortion? Maybe they can build a fence so women can't sneak out to commit murder on a 6 week old clump of tissue because it has "a heart beat". I thought clinical death had to do with brain activity but I suppose they would have trouble doing a test for that before the end of the first trimester.

When this is ruled unconstitutional, every member who voted for it should be barred from elected office for life.

A law that will finally protect lives. This will save more lives than any infringement on our 2nd ammendment rights. Abortion is not health care, but if it makes you feel better, I don't care what anyone wants to do to their unborn. Not my conscience. Good Luck.

When this is ruled unconstitutional, every member who voted for it should be barred from elected office for life. - Please point out where abortion is a constitutional right? If you don't care about other constitutional rights, you have no right to complain. Good luck.

I said when it was, perhaps based on Roe .v. Wade. I have been very vocal in defending all of the rights. Please show me in the Constitution where the government is empowered to restrict abortion. If it's not there, the government cannot do it.

If it's not there, the government cannot do it. - I am glad you agree that gun rights "shall not be infringed." I don't have a dog in the abortion fight, does not affect me, I guess that would be a personal choice. Unlike the right to keep and bear arms. Good Luck.

Two questions. 1. Is this aspect of abortion a state issue? 2. Does the majority of Arkansans favor this law? If the answer to both is yes, then this will be the law, rightfully constituted, in Arkansas. The issue will no doubt be tested and decided in the courts. As it should be. If it is indeed a state issue, then What people in Iowa, Rhode Island, Texas or (gasp!) Minnesota think about it matters not at all.
