On Monday the Carrol County Quorum Court passed a resolution affirming that the county is Pro-Life.
Monday’s vote means that one out of every five counties in Arkansas has passed a Pro-Life resolution.
Act 392 of 2021 by Rep. Kendon Underwood (R – Cave Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R – Branch) affirms that cities and counties can designate themselves as Pro-Life.
Act 392 also says that Pro-Life Communities can install signs or banners announcing that they are Pro-Life.
Since Act 392 was enacted last year, 15 counties have passed resolutions recognizing unborn children and affirming that they are Pro-Life, and several cities and towns have as well.
To date, Washington, Benton, Crawford, Cleburne, Pope, Jackson, Saline, Faulkner, Perry, Sebastian, Lee, White, Prairie, and Searcy counties have adopted Pro-Life resolutions — and so have the cities and towns of Marianna, Russellville, Springdale, LaGrange, Moro, Aubrey, Haynes, and Marshall.
Polling in Arkansas has shown time and again that Arkansans oppose abortion on demand.
Most Arkansans believe abortion ought to be either completely illegal or legal only under certain circumstances. In light of that, it makes sense that so many communities in Arkansas would vote to affirm that they are Pro-Life.
Look for other cities and counties pass Pro-Life resolutions in the coming months!
