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.

Speakers included:

  • Rep. Nicole Clowney (D – Fayetteville)
  • Cornelius Mabin
  • Dr. Alexandra Marshall
  • Dr. Stephanie Ho (formerly of Planned Parenthood in Fayetteville)
  • Dr. Joycelyn Elders (former US Surgeon General)

Sponsors reportedly included:

  • 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)
  • Planned Parenthood Great Plains (PPGP)
  • Progressive Arkansas Women PAC (PAWPAC)
  • Vector Health & Wellness
  • Central Arkansas Harm Reduction
  • Arkansas Transgender Equity Coalition (ARTEC)
  • Feminist Activism in Arkansas
  • Little Rock Central Arkansas Indivisible
  • National Organization for Women – Arkansas Chapter (NOW)
  • Arkansas United
  • Central Arkansas Democratic Socialists of America (CADSA)
  • 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.
