On Thursday morning the group Arkansas Abortion Support Network posted a photo of post cards addressed to Arkansas senators on the Senate Public Health Committee.
The post cards ask the senators to oppose S.B. 6, the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act.
All that’s left for this batch of postcards is the stamps. It’s that easy to contact our state senators to let them know SB6 and total abortion bans are wrong for Arkansas!

Arkansas Abortion Support Network provides abortion facility escorts and abortion funding. The group has previously made statements opposing S.B. 6.
S.B. 6 by Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway) and Rep. Mary Bentley (R – Perryville) is a good, pro-life bill that prohibits abortion in Arkansas except when the mother’s life is in jeopardy.
It sets the stage for federal courts to overturn bad decisions like Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
Arkansans are overwhelmingly pro-life.
Recent public opinion polling shows 23% of Arkansans believe abortion ought to be completely illegal, and 59% believe abortion ought to be legal only under certain circumstances.
S.B. 6 is an opportunity for Arkansas to be a real leader in the effort to end abortion in America.
