JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A proposed bill making its way through the Arkansas legislature could bring significant changes to the state’s abortion law.

According to KAIT, if approved, House Bill 1174 would allow a woman to be prosecuted for their child’s death.

The measure would include protections to prevent a woman from being pressured to get an abortion, including advertisements and coercion.

The bill was referred to the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Jan. 19.
