Protecting the vulnerable and voiceless

Like many Arkansans, I believe every life is precious and that each person is made in the image of God with a unique purpose and undeniable worth. Whether we notice them or not, every human being possesses fundamental, unalienable rights that we must not deny.

Sadly, that has not been the case in our nation in a variety of situations, but none is more tragic than in the case of the millions of children who have been deprived of their right to life since the Supreme Court upheld the legal right to abortion in 1973.

Since then, a movement to protect these unborn babies has worked diligently to attest to the inherent value of every child and build support around policies to defend lives in the womb and prohibit abortion except in the rarest of circumstances. That movement is spear-headed by groups like the March for Life, the National Right to Life, the Susan B. Anthony List and so many others. We are grateful for their steadfast resolve to stand for the defenseless and end abortion.

We must continue to advance the cause of life and educate the public, including expectant parents, about when life begins and why it is worthy of protection.
