Come to the 2018 Arkansas March for Life

This Sunday pro-life Arkansans will march and rally to end abortion at the annual March for Life.

The 2018 March for Life will take place at 2:00 PM in downtown Little Rock at West Capitol Ave and Wolfe Street, just west of the Arkansas Capitol Building.

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, who is currently defending several pro-life laws in court, will speak at a rally following the march.

This is a great opportunity for pro-life Arkansans to gather together, oppose abortion, and take a stand for the right to life. I hope you will make plans to join us.

The Pro-Life Legacy of Bishop McDonald

The Catholic Diocese of Little Rock announced today that former Bishop Andrew McDonald passed away at the age of 90.

Bishop McDonald served in Little Rock from 1972 to 2000. While he may be remembered for his years of ministry as a Catholic priest and bishop, I want to highlight an important legacy he leaves behind: His pro-life work.

Bishop McDonald stood for life during a time when many believed abortion “on demand and without apology” was inevitable. He organized the Respect Life office at the diocese, and he helped lead the annual March for Life in Little Rock.

Bishop McDonald was also a supporter of the Unborn Child Amendment—now Amendment 68 to the Arkansas Constitution—preventing public funds from being used to pay for abortion. In 1988 I helped lead the effort to pass the Unborn Child Amendment, and was able to start Family Council in part because the amendment campaign succeeded.
