Act 943: Unplanned Pregnancy Prevention  

Act 943, passed by the Arkansas Legislature in 2015 directs college and universities to develop and implement action plans to help students prevent unplanned pregnancy or delay plans for additional pregnancies. 

Arkansas is #1 in birth rates for 18-19 year olds and unplanned births result in 1 in 10 college dropouts*. The topic of preventing unplanned pregnancy is relevant for both college men and women, for those who are already parents, as well as those who are not parents.
