According to the Arkansas Advocate, on Tuesday the Arkansas Capitol Arts and Grounds Commission tabled a vote on where to construct the state’s monument to the unborn.

The commission reportedly will discuss the monument’s placement further at its meeting next month.

Act 310 of 2023 by Sen. Kim Hammer (R – Benton) and Rep. Mary Bentley (R – Perryville) authorizes a privately funded pro-life monument on the Arkansas Capitol Grounds.

The monument will commemorate the 236,243 unborn children whose lives were lost to abortion from 1973 – 2022.

Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, and abortion is prohibited in Arkansas except to save the life of the mother, it’s important to remember the dignity and humanity of all unborn children.

Act 310 does that by establishing this monument as “a constant reminder of our duty to protect the life of every innocent human person, no matter how young or old, or how helpless and vulnerable that person may be.”

Arkansas Right to Life was the lead pro-life proponent of this good law. Family Council was proud to support their efforts.
