Pro-lifers in Arkansas are working to place pregnancy resource centers next door to both of Arkansas’ Planned Parenthood facilities.
In an email, Toni — the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Little Rock — reports that Caring Hearts Pregnancy Center is working to convert a dentist office into a pregnancy center next door to Planned Parenthood’s Little Rock abortion facility.
She says that mothers soon will be able to go to that location for free ultrasounds and resources that can help them choose options besides abortion.
In Northwest Arkansas, Loving Choices Pregnancy Centers is working to acquire a location next door to the new Planned Parenthood facility in Rogers.
Planned Parenthood’s Rogers facility is opening this week.
According KHBS/KHOG, the facility will not perform abortions right away, but intends to be licensed as an abortion facility by the end of this year.
In the meantime, Planned Parenthood’s website indicates the facility will offer abortion referrals — meaning it’s important for pro-lifers to be available to minister to women outside that facility.
Planned Parenthood operated an abortion facility in Fayetteville, Arkansas, for several years until its landlord reportedly opted not to renew the abortion giant’s lease in the summer of 2019.
That same year, Planned Parenthood moved its Little Rock abortion facility across town, opening in a former foot and ankle clinic in west Little Rock.
Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood is unveiling a new facility in Northwest Arkansas, here’s something important to remember:
Pro-lifers are on the move, working to save unborn babies and give women real options besides abortion.
Abortion in Arkansas has been in decline for years.
In 2020, Arkansas’ abortion numbers remained near historic lows, and public opinion polling shows most Arkansans believe abortion ought to be completely illegal or legal only under certain circumstances.
Slowly but surely, we’re winning the fight to protect innocent human life in Arkansas.
