On February 1, the Tontitown City Council passed a good resolution affirming that the community is Pro-Life.
Tontitown is in Washington County — which passed its own Pro-Life Resolution in July of 2021.
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, 19 counties and 11 cities and towns have passed resolutions recognizing unborn children and affirming that they are Pro-Life.
Benton, Washington, Crawford, Cleburne, Pope, Jackson, Saline, Faulkner, Perry, Sebastian, Lee, White, Prairie, Searcy, Carrol, Newton, Boone, Hot Spring, and Madison counties have adopted Pro-Life resolutions — and so have the cities and towns of Marianna, Russellville, Springdale, LaGrange, Moro, Aubrey, Haynes, Marshall, Western Grove, and Leslie.
Voters in Tontitown should be proud of their city council for taking a pro-life stand. We look forward to other cities and counties passing Pro-Life resolutions in the coming weeks.
