    City of Springdale declares it is ‘pro-life’

    ABNews Logo

    SPRINGDALE — The Springdale City Council unanimously approved a statement August 13 declaring the city to be pro-life.

    The city took the action in an apparent attempt to head off the possible location of a Planned Parenthood office in Springdale, according to published reports. Council member Colby Fulfer introduced the measure to the council.

    According to its website, Planned Parenthood stopped providing services at its location in Fayetteville July 25, saying it will announce a new location soon.

    Fulfer said the council’s vote, which is not legally binding according to the city’s attorney, sends a message to Planned Parenthood, “respectfully asking the abortion provider to find another city,” the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

    Springdale is the fourth-largest city in Arkansas, with a population of about 80,000 residents. It is located in Washington and Benton counties in the northwest corner of the state at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
