LOWELL, Arkansas (LifeSiteNews) — The city council in a small Arkansas town this week passed a resolution declaring their municipality a “Pro-Life City” committed to the “dignity of all life.”
The Lowell City Council approved the measure on Tuesday, affirming that “the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are unalienable and should not be denied.” The resolution upholds “Amendment 68 to the Arkansas Constitution,” which “states that the policy of the State of Arkansas is to protect the life of every unborn child from conception until birth to the extent permitted by the United States Constitution.”
Noting the General Assembly of the State of Arkansas had previously passed Act 392 of 2021, which affirmed that cities have the right to declare themselves pro-life, the Lowell City Council resolved that “the City of Lowell declares itself a Pro-Life City.”

“[T]he state and local governments throughout the United States are governed by the United States Constitution and the principles of the Declaration of Independence and should strive to protect the unalienable rights to life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of each and every person within their jurisdiction,” the resolution read.
The Tuesday designation of Lowell as a pro-life city came after the Lowell City Council had previously failed to pass the resolution in March, receiving three votes in favor and five votes against.
A bevy of other counties and cities in Arkansas have declared themselves officially pro-life ahead of Lowell. Nearby Springdale, Arkansas became the first city to do so in 2019, the Arkansas Family Council reported.
Family Council reports that 20 counties and 14 cities and towns in Arkansas have implemented pro-life resolutions thus far.

States and local legislatures will increasingly take up matters regarding the regulation of abortion after the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned 49 years of federal abortion precedent by eliminating the constitutional “right to abortion.”
