Thank the Governor! Sex selective abortions now banned in Arkansas!
Abortion is a grave evil in our society. It’s critical that we fight on all fronts to empower women and protect vulnerable, unborn babies. There are many means by which we can accomplish this goal, and we should applaud every legal limitation to abortion as it represents lives saved.
Last week, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson signed a law that bans sex-selective abortions. Although we must always work towards completely outlawing any abortions in our country, this restriction is a step in the right direction to save lives!
Please sign this petition thanking Governor Hutchinson for his continued commitment to protecting the lives of the unborn.
Under this new law, doctors who abort children based solely on the child’s sex could face prison time and heavy fines.
“I think it protects everyone concerned. It especially protects unborn girls,” says Jerry Cox, the head of the Arkansas Family Council.
This is an important restriction on abortion in our state! It’s especially ironic that the radical “feminists” who opposed this law call themselves champions for women’s rights. How can the rights of women and girls be protected if little girls in the womb may be killed for nothing besides their gender?! Everyone should be able to support this common-sense regulation.
By the time gender can be identified, the most common form of abortion is “Dilation and Evacuation” or D&E. “D&E” is a nice vague term for what is likely the most barbaric practice in America—doctors literally rip unborn babies apart, limb-from-limb, and then pull their body parts out of the womb.
By the second trimester, babies in the womb are listening to their mother’s voice, doing summersaults, and sucking their thumb. These are precious little babies who can feel incredible pain. We must support every restriction we can that will protect these innocent little ones from a death that the most gruesome cultures won’t impose on even guilty criminals.
Please join us in thanking Governor Asa Hutchinson for his stance for life in Arkansas!
