The battle over abortion in Arkansas is far from over -- centering right now around the Republican-controlled House and Senate and the Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe, CBN News reports. Beebe vetoed a bill Tuesday that would ban most abortions starting in the 20th week of pregnancy, but on Wednesday, the House overrode that veto 53 to 28. Only hours earlier, a state Senate committee approved a package of even tighter abortion restrictions. Seven states have enacted 20-week abortion restrictions, based on the argument that an unborn baby can feel pain as early as 20 weeks into the pregnancy.
