    LITTLE ROCK – Americans United for Life (AUL) has named Arkansas the second most pro-life state in America behind Arizona. 

    The 2019 Life List ranks all 50 states from best to worst on how well their laws protect human life. 

    Family Council President Jerry Cox said following the announcement by AUL “This is something Arkansans should be proud of. Our state is the second most pro-life state in the country. That is something to celebrate.”

    Cox said the ranking is the result of the hard work of pro-life Arkansans.

    “Arkansans work very hard to protect innocent human life from conception until natural death. Volunteers across the state help women with unplanned pregnancies choose options besides abortion and our lawmakers have consistently passed good legislation that protects unborn children. The fact that Arkansas is ranked the second most pro-life state in America shows all that hard work is paying off.”

    AUL is a leading expert when it comes to surveying state pro-life laws said Cox.

    “AUL has been at this for years. When their attorneys analyze state laws they look at everything from abortion policies to protections for pregnant women to end-of-life laws. If they say we’re the second most pro-life state in America you can count on it.”

    Cox added that his team at Family Council is developing a legislative package that he believes will help make Arkansas the most pro-life state in the nation.

    “Right now Arkansas is in second place. We want to be in first place. We’ve talked to attorneys from Americans United for Life and we have put together a list of laws that we believe can help make Arkansas the best state in the nation when it comes to upholding the sanctity of human life. We look forward to working with our friends in the Arkansas Legislature and at Arkansas Right to Life to help make Arkansas the most pro-life state in America.”
