Arkansas Overrules Governor's Veto on Pro Life Act

Governor Mike Beebe, of Arkansas, had vetoed the Arkansas Human Heartbeat Protection Act.

However, Tuesday saw the Senate decide to over rule the veto, with a vote of twenty to fourteen.

On Wednesday, the House joined them with a vote of fifty-five to thirty-three.

It was mostly bipartisan, but several Democrats did come over to the Republican side.

The Act will be challenged in the courts, as it has an earlier recognition of life, than federal laws do.
