Planned Parenthood’s political action committee (PAC) conducted virtually no activity in Arkansas during the first three months of the year, according to reports filed with the Secretary of State on Monday.

Planned Parenthood has long been the nation’s leading abortion provider, and its PAC has a history of supporting pro-abortion candidates in Arkansas.

However, the group has been unusually quiet this election season, conducting virtually no political activity in Arkansas this year.

The PAC currently has $11,721 on hand that it could give to candidates ahead of the elections in November.

Now that Roe v. Wade has been reversed and abortion is prohibited in Arkansas except to save the life of the mother, groups like Planned Parenthood are turning their attention toward state elections and legislation.

With that in mind, Planned Parenthood could use its PAC in Arkansas to try to influence public policy or public opinion on abortion in the coming months.
