Governor Beebe Weighs in on Controversial Bill

Governor Mike Beebe says he will sign into a law legislation that
would ban coverage of most abortions in a health insurance exchange.
The Senate, on a 25 to 9 vote today, gave final approval to a bill
that would ban abortion coverage.
Beebe said after the vote that he believes the measure restates
existing law on whether public money can be used for abortions.
Opponents argue that the bill prevents women from spending their own
money for the insurance coverage.
The coverage ban includes exemptions for rape, incest and to save the
life of the mother.
