The following is an email alert from Family Council Action Committee.

Canvassers for the abortion amendment are working intensely across the state in the final stages of their petition drive.

Arkansans for Limited Government has until Friday to collect 90,704 valid petition signatures to place the Arkansas Abortion Amendment on the ballot.

Family Council Action Committee believes there are canvassers collecting signatures in nearly every county around the state. But pro-abortion strike teams traveling around Arkansas seem particularly focused on these 28 counties:

  • Ashley
  • Benton
  • Boone
  • Bradley
  • Calhoun
  • Clay
  • Cleveland
  • Crawford
  • Crittenden
  • Cross
  • Dallas
  • Fulton
  • Grant
  • Izard
  • Little River
  • Perry
  • Pike
  • Pulaski
  • Prairie
  • Randolph
  • Scott
  • Sevier
  • Van Buren
  • Logan
  • Searcy
  • Washington
  • White
  • Yell

If you see petition canvassers collecting signatures on private property, such as store parking lots, notify the property owner immediately. Our team is aware of situations where petition canvassers have tried to collect signatures on private property without getting permission from the property owners first.

Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin has said petition canvassing should only be conducted with permission from the property owner.

Look for canvassers in your community, and ask others to be on the lookout too. Some counties have developed a network of pro-lifers who are watching for pro-abortion canvassers. As soon as they are spotted, they take action by calling the business or standing near the canvasser to urge people not to sign the petition.

Look for canvasser at your local Independence Day celebrations such as fireworks shows.  Pro-abortion canvassers have a right to get signatures on public property. You and other pro-life individuals have a right to be right there as well, urging people not to sign the petition. You have a right to walk alongside them if they are getting signatures in a crowd of people.

Family Council Action Committee is among the many groups encouraging Arkansans to Decline to Sign the abortion petition. You can learn more at
