Supreme Court sunriseArkansas is preparing for the day when Roe v Wade is overturned.

The state legislature has passed a "trigger law" measure, Senate Bill 149, to deal with it just in case, says Rose Mimms of Arkansas Right to Life.

"It would make Arkansas abortion-free," she says, "except for the rare cases of life of the mother."

That will give Arkansas back its existing laws prior to the Supreme Court ruling in 1973.

Overturning the controversial decision is a possibility, Mimms says, as more conservative justices are seated on the high court.

"And it also sort of puts the other side on notice that, Hey, what you thought was settled law in 1973 may not be settled in the near future," Mimms tells OneNewsNow.

Arkansas joins South Dakota, North Dakota, Mississippi , and Louisiana in passing trigger laws, and Tennessee and Kentucky could join the ranks because of similar pending bills.
