The Arkansas legislature voted yesterday to override Governor Mike Beebe's wise veto of SB 134, a.k.a. the Human Heartbeat Protection Act, which would ban nearly all abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy. It's by far the harshest abortion ban in the country, the most egregious challenge to Roe v Wade passed by a state or territorial legislature since Guam tried to ban all abortions in 1990, and almost certainly won't hold up in court because it's unconstitutional as fuck. Gold stars for Arkansas! Here's everything you need to know.
