On Tuesday night the Prairie County Quorum Court adopted a resolution affirming that the county is Pro-Life.
Prairie County is Arkansas’ seventeenth Pro-Life Community.
Earlier this year the Arkansas Legislature passed Act 392 of 2021 by Rep. Kendon Underwood (R – Cave Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R – Branch). Act 392 is a good law that affirms that municipalities can designate themselves as Pro-Life.
Act 392 also makes it clear that Pro-Life Communities can install signs or banners announcing that they are Pro-Life.
Since Act 392 was enacted over the summer, Arkansas has seen a rapid expansion of Pro-Life Cities and Counties across the state.
Washington, Benton, Crawford, Cleburne, Pope, Jackson, Saline, Faulkner, Perry, Sebastian, Lee, and White counties have adopted Pro-Life resolutions. So have the cities of Marianna, Russellville, and Springdale as well as the Town of LaGrange.
As public opinion polling has shown time and again, Arkansans are overwhelmingly pro-life. It should not come as any surprise that communities in Arkansas would vote to adopt resolutions affirming that they support the sanctity of human life.
