Early Friday morning abortion activists hung a banner reading “God Bless Abortions” across the Christ of the Ozarks statue in Eureka Springs, according to KNWA FOX 24 and LifeNews.com.

Christ of the Ozarks is an iconic, 67 foot tall statue on Magnetic Mountain. It has been a popular landmark in Arkansas since 1966.

The pro-abortion group Indecline reportedly took credit for hanging the banner on the monument.

Life News reports,

The abortion activists [Indecline] appear to be part of an antifa, or anti-fascist, group that works anonymously to vandalize property and create shock art to make political statements about abortion and other issues. The group describes itself as an activist art collective.

On its website, it sells a T-shirt for babies that reads, “God bless abortions.” Another T-shirt reads “Shoot cops” next to the image of a camera.

In March, the group also took credit for vandalizing a Byhalia, Mississippi billboard purchased by Christian Aid Ministries. The message read, “Worried? Jesus offers security,” along with a phone number for the ministry. The pro-abortion group spray-painted over the billboard, changing the message to say, “Worried? Planned Parenthood offers abortions.”

It’s worth noting that Arkansas is the most pro-life state in America, according to Americans United for Life.

Public opinion polling shows most Arkansans think abortion should be either completely illegal or legal only under certain circumstances.

Abortion in Arkansas remains near historic lows.

And the Arkansas Legislature passed more pro-life legislation this year than ever before.

It’s unfortunate that a small group of activists decided to make a pro-abortion statement using Christ of the Ozarks. However, across the board Arkansans are winning the fight to end abortion in our state.

Conway Gets Arkansas’ Fifth Safe Haven Baby Box

On Wednesday pro-lifers in Conway unveiled Arkansas’ fifth Safe Haven Baby Box. The box is located at Central Fire Station #1.

Arkansas’ Safe Haven Act of 2001 lets a woman surrender her newborn baby to law enforcement, medical personnel, and first responders. The law gives women an option besides abortion.

Similar laws are on the books in all 50 states.

Safe Haven Baby Boxes installed at fire stations let women surrender an infant safely and anonymously using a specialized, hospital-grade bassinet designed to keep the baby secure while notifying the first responders inside the fire station that the baby is there.

There are currently 75 Safe Haven Baby Boxes in operation nationwide — including five in Arkansas.

Since June of 2019, Arkansas Right to Life has promoted Arkansas’ Safe Haven Act and the Safe Haven Baby Boxes through a billboard campaign.

So far, billboards have been placed in 21 counties. Arkansas Right to Life’s goal is to place billboards in all 75 counties in the state.

Arkansas Right to Life reports that future Safe Haven Baby Boxes are planned for Maumelle, Fort Smith, El Dorado, and Rogers.

Safe Haven Baby Boxes are amazing pieces of pro-life technology. It’s good to see communities like Conway continue to make them available to Arkansans.
