Students for Life Action Calls on Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson to Sign SB 6, the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act 

“Protecting life in law represents the common decency we owe to every human being,” said SFLAction’s Kristan Hawkins, noting that more than 40,000 calls to protect life in Arkansas have already been made to accomplish this historic opportunity. 

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (03-03-2021) – Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins said that the Pro-Life Generation would continue our advocacy on behalf of SB 6 that passed the state House with a super majority, earning 76 yes votes out of 100, after passing the Senate chamber and now heads to Governor Asa Hutchinson’s desk. “We urge Governor Hutchinson to sign the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act so that the lives pre-born children will be protected in law,” said Hawkins. “The Pro-Life Generation thanks Senator Jason Rapert for his leadership and thanks all the legislators who joined in this bi-partisan effort on behalf of the pre-born and their mothers.”

Efforts on behalf of the pro-life legislation included generating more than more than 4,700 emails into the capitol and Governor’s mansion. SFLAction called more than 42,000 pro-lifers in Arkansas, urging them to call their state legislators in support of this bill. That activism will continue, with calls and e-mails now for the Governor.
