Reach Church and NWA Coalition for Life recently released a statement and video urging Arkansans to “be a voice for the voiceless” by declining to sign petitions for the abortion amendment.

Arkansans for Limited Government is collecting petition signatures to place the Arkansas Abortion Amendment on the November ballot.

The amendment would write abortion into the state constitution, and it would prevent the Arkansas Legislature from restricting abortion during the first five months of pregnancy — allowing thousands of elective abortions every year and paving the way for taxpayer-funded abortions in Arkansas.

In a statement posted alongside a video on social media, Reach Church and NWA Coalition for Life said,

What you need to know about what’s on the Abortion Amendment⛔️

-It would permanently change the Arkansas constitution to allow abortion without restrictions through 18 weeks of fertilization (which is 20 weeks pregnant).

-Abortions would be legal up to birth in certain circumstances.

-Minors will not have to have parental consent to get an abortion.

-If passed, the Abortion Amendment would be a part of our constitution, and legislation cannot overturn it.

Here’s what you can do to help:

-Share this video
A lot of people are being fed misinformation from these originations. The more truth we share, the more informed everyone is.

-Decline to sign
Refuse to sign the petition to add the Abortion Amendment to the November ballot, and encourage your family and friends to do the same.

The video is available below.

The Arkansas Abortion Amendment threatens to nullify common sense health and safety laws that restrict abortion. Without these laws, Arkansas could see dangerous, unrestricted abortions — putting women and unborn children in serious jeopardy.
