This week the pro-abortion group Arkansas Abortion Support Network issued a press release vowing to oppose S.B. 6, the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act, by Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway) and Rep. Mary Bentley (R – Perryville).

The Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act would prohibit abortion in Arkansas except when the mother’s life is at risk. The bill would give the federal courts an opportunity to dismantle Roe v. Wade and other pro-abortion rulings.

Arkansas Abortion Support Network says it plans to organize phone calls to state legislators, post card writing campaigns, letters to the editor, and demonstrations at the Arkansas Capitol.

It’s important to remember that the vast majority of Arkansans believe abortion ought to be either completely illegal or legal only in certain circumstances. That’s what the Unborn Child Protection Act does.

Pro-life Arkansans need to be prepared to stand up for the sanctity and dignity of human life in 2021.

Family Council is committed to supporting S.B. 6, the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act, and we plan to encourage all of our friends and supporters around the state to do the same.
