Sen. Rapert presents H.C.R. 1007 in the Arkansas Senate.

On Wednesday the Arkansas Senate passed pro-life resolution H.C.R. 1007. The resolution previously passed the Arkansas House of Representatives.

This good resolution by Rep. Jim Wooten (R – Beebe) and Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway) recognizes January 22 — the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade abortion decision — as “The Day of Tears” in Arkansas.

The resolution also acknowledges the 61 million unborn babies killed in abortion in America over the past five decades, and it encourages Arkansans to lower their flags to half-staff on January 22 to mourn the innocent children who have lost their lives.

Alabama passed a similar resolution last month.

This is a good resolution that will forever mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in Arkansas — and remember the destruction that abortion has caused in our country.
