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 Springdale City Council passed a resolution designating it as Arkansas’ “first pro-life city.”
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.
Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”
Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”
Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

“As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.
Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”
Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.https://t.co/ujBGxbWXtR

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
