On Thursday Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin’s office rejected a proposed amendment writing abortion into the state constitution.

This is the second time the A.G.’s team has rejected this abortion amendment, citing ambiguities in the measure’s wording.

Arkansans for Limited Government has been working for the certification of the popular name and ballot title of an amendment permanently enshrining abortion in the Arkansas Constitution. Last month the group filed reports with the state Ethics Commission showing it has received $2,341 in donations supporting the amendment effort.

If approved, this amendment would write abortion into the Arkansas Constitution and erase decades of good, pro-life laws.

Family Council has worked for nearly 35 years to promote and protect the sanctity and dignity of innocent human life in Arkansas. This amendment would place women and unborn children at risk. We are firmly committed to stopping abortion in our state.
