On Monday night the City of Aubrey, Arkansas, passed a resolution affirming that the community is Pro-Life.
Aubrey joins a growing list of Pro-Life Cities and Counties in Arkansas.
Earlier this year the Arkansas Legislature passed 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 makes it clear that Pro-Life Communities can install signs or banners announcing that they are Pro-Life.
Since Act 392 was enacted over the summer, Arkansas has seen a rapid expansion of Pro-Life Cities and Counties across the state.
Washington, Benton, Crawford, Cleburne, Pope, Jackson, Saline, Faulkner, Perry, Sebastian, Lee, White, and Prairie counties have adopted Pro-Life resolutions — and so have Marianna, Russellville, Springdale, LaGrange, and Moro.

In 1977 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in its Poelker v. Doe decision that communities can adopt pro-life resolutions and policies.
Any community can pass a pro-life resolution like the ones that these cities and counties have passed.
