Above: The Boone County Quorum Court unanimously approved a pro-life resolution on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.

Family Council estimates that nearly half — approximately 43% – 44% — of all Arkansans lives in a county that has designated itself as Pro-Life.

The Arkansas Legislature overwhelmingly voted to enact Act 392 of 2021 by Rep. Kendon Underwood (R – Cave Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R – Branch) last year.

This good law affirms that cities and counties can declare that they are Pro-Life.

To date, 20 counties and 13 cities and towns in Arkansas have adopted pro-life resolutions.

After reviewing population data for the State of Arkansas, Family Council estimates that more than 1.3 million Arkansans live in a Pro-Life County.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates Arkansas’ population at just over three million people.

That means a little more than 43% of the state’s population lives in a Pro-Life County.

That it fantastic news. It underscores what a pro-life state Arkansas is.

We look forward to other cities and counties in Arkansas passing Pro-Life resolutions as the year progresses!
