Arkansas House Votes to Override Governor's Veto of 20-Week Abortion Ban
Reuters: Arkansas House overrides veto of late-term abortion ban, by Suzi Parker:
The Republican-controlled Arkansas House of Representatives on Wednesday overrode a veto by Democratic Governor Mike Beebe of a bill to ban most late-term abortions in the state at 20 weeks into pregnancy.
The House voted 53-28 to override the veto, and the Republican-dominated state Senate was expected to vote on Thursday to override the veto as well. If that happens, Arkansas would join seven other U.S. states that restrict or ban abortions after the 20-week mark. . . .
