On March 7 the Leslie City Council passed a resolution affirming that Leslie is a Pro-Life City.

Leslie — which is in Searcy County, in the northern region of the state — joins a growing list of communities that have declared they are Pro-Life.

Last year the Arkansas Legislature passed Act 392 of 2021 by Rep. Kendon Underwood (R – Cave Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R – Branch).

This good law 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.

To date, 18 counties and 10 cities and towns have passed resolutions recognizing unborn children and affirming that they are Pro-Life.

Benton, WashingtonCrawfordCleburnePopeJacksonSalineFaulknerPerrySebastianLeeWhitePrairieSearcyCarrolNewtonBoone, and Hot Spring counties have adopted Pro-Life resolutions — and so have the cities and towns of MariannaRussellvilleSpringdaleLaGrangeMoroAubrey, Haynes, Marshall, and Western Grove.

We look forward to many more communities in Arkansas passing pro-life resolutions in the weeks to come.
