On Monday the Fulton County Quorum Court unanimously passed a resolution affirming the county is Pro-Life. Fulton County joins a growing list of Pro-Life Communities in Arkansas.

Last year the Arkansas Legislature enacted Act 392 of 2021 by Rep. Kendon Underwood (R – Cave Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R – Branch). This good law affirms that cities and counties can designate themselves as Pro-Life. Act 392 also says that Pro-Life Communities can install signs or banners announcing that they are Pro-Life.

To date, 20 counties and 12 cities and towns have passed resolutions affirming that they are Pro-Life.

Public opinion polling shows that most Arkansans believe abortion ought to be either completely illegal or permitted only under certain circumstances, and Arkansas’ pro-life laws are among the best in the nation. In fact, Americans United for Life has ranked Arkansas the most pro-life state in America two years in a row!

With all of that in mind, it makes sense for communities in Arkansas to adopt resolutions affirming they are Pro-Life. We look forward to other cities and counties passing Pro-Life resolutions in the days to come!
