Pro-Abortion Demonstrators, Vandals Target Pro-Life Prayer Vigils in Northwest Arkansas

Last week vandals and pro-abortion protesters targeted pro-life prayer vigils in Northwest Arkansas.

In an email message, pro-lifers coordinating 40 Days for Life in Rogers wrote that vandals cut down pro-life banners at St. Stephen Church in Bentonville on Friday.

The banners accompany a display of crosses that represent aborted children. Pro-lifers periodically move the banners and crosses from location to location throughout Northwest Arkansas.

The banners reportedly were hung back up and a police report was filed.

The email also described a group of pro-abortion protesters from Missouri who gathered at one of the pro-life prayer vigils last week.

These are the first pro-abortion demonstrators we have seen since January 2022. Pro-lifers attempted to have a calm and rational conversation with the demonstrators’ questions and accusations — but to no avail.  Pro-Lifers continued praying and remained peaceful, however, when one demonstrator became particularly assertive, prayer warrior Arthur P. called 911. Perfect! The pro-abortionists calmed down, seemed a bit deflated and eventually left.  Rogers Police took a few notes and thanked pro-lifers for calling them. We haven’t seen demonstrators since.   

40 Days for Life is not a rally or protest. It is a peaceful, pro-life assembly for prayer and reflection — and it works.

Every year we hear stories babies savedabortion clinics shut down, and abortion workers coming to Christ in the wake of a 40 Days for Life prayer campaign.

Arkansas law generally prohibits abortion except to save the life of the mother, but Planned Parenthood — the nation’s leading abortion provider — still has offices in Little Rock and Rogers.

Baby Saved From Abortion In Little Rock

On Wednesday 40 Days for Life in Little Rock reported that a baby was saved from abortion.

Toni — the coordinator for 40 Days for Life’s pro-life prayer vigils in Little Rock — wrote,

Great news!

A young couple stopped today after coming out of their appointment at Planned Parenthood. They wanted to know more about getting a free ultrasound. The mom said she prayed this morning for God to give her a sign that He would provide for the needs of this baby. A couple of ladies from Cathedral of St Andrew out there praying with a “Free Ultrasound” sign were used by God to answer this mom’s prayer!

Pray for this couple as they begin the journey into parenthood.

God can use you too, so if you haven’t already done so, sign up for your time on the sidewalk at 

Something as simple as praying outside an abortion facility can make a huge difference.
