For the first time in 40 years, there is not a single abortion center in Northwest Arkansas.  Sometimes it's still hard for me to believe.  This newsletter is a bit longer than any before, but what has happened is truly momentous!  I'd like to share about some events prior to Planned Parenthood's move and shortly after.   


"Certainly all Americans would have the same question after hearing that more than 2,000 aborted babies were stored on property in Illinois owned by a now-deceased abortion doctor: How could this happen?...As an answer to this horrendous act, the Dignity for Aborted Children act was introduced on Sept. 27th...It is amazing to know that Indiana, Arkansas and Georgia are the only states with these types of laws..." 

Death Penalty Public Forum

with guest panelist Sheila Pursell

On April 15, 2017, Public Discussions NWA held a forum entitled "What if We Could Save  the Lives of Eight Men?  Or Should the State of Arkansas Execute Them?"  NWA Director, Sheila Pursell, presented ALL life is sacred and the right to human life should be supported from conception to natural death due to the inherent goodness of persons.  The facts that the cost of executions are far more substantial than life in prison with out parole, it is not proven that the death penalty deters crime and that the death penalty often prolongs the suffering of the victims family and friends were also discussed. 

Please pray for the victim's loved ones and the 8 men on death row in Arkansas.
