NARAL, the National Abortion Rights Action League, has given Arkansas an “F” when it comes to passing pro-abortion legislation.
In their report, The State of Choice in the States, the pro-abortion group singled out Arkansas as the state that passed the largest number of abortion-restricting laws in 2013.
Altogether, NARAL gave 25 states a failing grade when it came to passing pro-abortion laws. The group acknowledged that 2013 saw 53 “anti-choice” bills passed nationwide, and that 807 “anti-choice” laws had been passed in the U.S. since 1995.
According to the report, 97% of Arkansas’ counties have no abortion providers. That number is surpassed only by North and South Dakota at 98% and Mississippi, a state where 99% of its counties have no abortion centers.
This “Failing” grade from NARAL comes right on the heels of Americans United For Life ranking Arkansas the third most pro-life state in the nation.
