Over the weekend, pro-abortion groups held a rally on the steps of the Arkansas Capitol Building in Little Rock.
The rally was sponsored by the Arkansas Coalition for Reproductive Justice.
- Rep. Nicole Clowney (D – Fayetteville)

- Dr. Stephanie Ho (formerly of Planned Parenthood in Fayetteville)
- Dr. Joycelyn Elders (former US Surgeon General)

- Arkansas Abortion Support Network (AASN)
- Arkansas Association of University Women (AAUW)
- Arkansas Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
- Arkansas Sierra Club
- Arkansas Society of Freethinkers (ASF)
- Central Arkansas Pride
- Human Rights Campaign (HRC)

- Feminist Activism in Arkansas

- National Organization for Women – Arkansas Chapter (NOW)

- Real Images
Student organizations supporting the event included:
- UA Little Rock (UALR) AWARE
- UA Little Rock (UALR) Bowen Law School If/When/How
- UAMS Future Health Professionals for Reproductive Rights
- UCA Feminist Union
- Young Democrats of Arkansas Women’s Caucus
As we mentioned recently, the AWARE student group at UALR hosted an event last fall with Reproaction — a pro-abortion group who teaches women how to perform abortions at home.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that more than 300 people attended Saturday’s pro-abortion event.
It’s worth pointing out that the pro-abortion rally drew only a fraction of the attendance that the 2020 March for Life did the week before.
Arkansans are overwhelmingly pro-life, and abortion in Arkansas is at historic lows.
That’s part of the reason Arkansas is the second most pro-life state in America.
We are winning the fight to protect innocent human life in Arkansas, but there is still a lot of work left to do.
