Arkansas City Becomes a Pro-Life Sanctuary

Published

on

Last week, the Springdale City Council passed a resolution establishing itself as Arkansas’ “first pro-life city.”

This decision was approved by a 6-1 vote. Colby Fulfer pushed the resolution forward under the message that Planned Parenthood find another city to operate in.

Planned Parenthood recently stopped providing abortion services last month at its Fayetteville facility. The group claims it will unveil a new location.

The Northwest Democrat-Gazette reported on both opponents and proponents of the legislation present during the night of the vote.

Keith Underhill was in favor the resolution.

“It’s who we are,” he declared.

On the other hand, John Mathias, a nurse, argued that there should be a separation of church and state. He believes that Fulfer is sending the wrong message to northwest Arkansas.

In the resolution, it states that the city “affirms the value of human life at every stage” and lists off various pro-life bills that the Arkansas General Assembly passed since 2005. The measure contends that “equality takes on its greatest form at the point of creation.”

Fulfer told residents that an overwhelming number of constituents “support life from the beginning to the end.”

Arkansas joins states like North Carolina and Texas in their efforts to reassert pro-life principles. Pro-life activists are not satisfied with D.C.’s inaction on the issue, so they’re taking matters into their own hands.
