Rose Mimms is the executive director of Arkansas Right to Life. She first became involved in the pro-life movement in 1988 when she began volunteering at a local crisis pregnancy center in Little Rock where she learned more about the issues of abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Motivated to give more than a few hours a week of her time, she became active in her church through the Respect Life Office of the Diocese of Little Rock and in her community by organizing the first Central Arkansas Life Chain in Little Rock and the Rosary Novena for Life.
A devout Catholic, Rose credits her advocacy for Life to God who opened her heart to the cry of the unborn to be their voice and to help women faced with an unwanted pregnancy see that the abortion choice is a dead end for both mother and child. God blessed her with the gifts and talents needed for her to stand up and speak out for life, regardless of the personal cost. She often says, “All I did is say Yes, God has done all the rest.”
In 1993 she quit her waitress job to become office manager for Arkansas Right to Life. In 1996 she was promoted to Executive Director the same year that she returned to college where she earned a degree in liberal arts and graduated with honors in 2002.
Over the last 25+ years of involvement in the pro-life movement Rose has authored many Letters to the Editor and Guest Editorials and organized many public events to educate others on the sanctity of human life. She is the official spokesperson for Arkansas Right to Life and considered the leading expert on pro-life issues in Arkansas.
Rose and her husband Larry live in Saline County and have been married for 44 years. They are the parents of a daughter and son and have six grandchildren.
The Silent Scream
The Silent Scream Complete Version - Abortion as Infanticide Dr. Bernard Nathanson's classic video that shocked the world. He explains the procedure of a suction abortion, followed by an actual first trimester abortion as seen through ultrasound.
