A group of Arkansas legislators filed a bill Monday (Dec. 5) called the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act that would ban an abortion procedure called dilation and evacuation, which is used in the second trimester of pregnancy.
Legislators say they're not banning second-trimester abortions, but they are banning one of the methods used to terminate a pregnancy after the 12th week. Opponents say legislators are trying to ban the most commonly used form of second-trimester abortion.
Oklahoma junior quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Burlsworth Trophy for the second straight year. The award, announced Monday morning in Springdale, is given annually to the best college player that began his career as a walk-on.
