Baby Irena was born on July 6, 2009 at 27 weeks, and passed away on July 10, 2009. Life is precious. Never forget that every life is precious.
Our President was 1 of 2 US Senators to vote in favor of Partial Birth Abortion in 2004. Partial Birth Abortion gives women the right to kill their babies up to full term. We all know that children are viable at that age, and MUCH earlier. If that weren't unnerving enough...
TONIGHT, July 15, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on a bill that will allow public funds to be used to pay directly for abortions in our nation's capital.
If this measure passes, taxpayer money appropriated by Congress will be sent directly to the abortion industry in Washington , D.C.
Please contact your Representative and verbalize your dissent.
Tell your member of Congress to oppose this change in the law and to vote against the passage of H.R. 3170 if it continues to allow the use of locally generated tax revenues - public money - to be used for the killing of innocent human lives in the womb.
Since 1988, except for a short period under President Clinton, the Congress of the United States has adopted language known as the Dornan Amendment that limits the use of tax funds to pay for abortions in the nation's capital. This amendment has been applied to both federally and locally generated tax revenues - in short, all public funds - that are appropriated by Congress to the District of Columbia . This amendment has protected women in Washington , D.C. from the abortion industry and led many to choose positive alternatives for themselves and their babies.
Now, pro-abortion members of Congress want tax funds used for abortion again. If they succeed in doing so on H.R. 3170, this will open the door for the repeal of nearly two dozen other federal laws that have similar limits on the use of public money to pay for abortions, including through the pending health care reform. The stakes could not be higher. Please contact your member of Congress now and tell him or her to oppose H.R. 3170 if it allows the use of locally generated tax funds for abortion. Please act now as the vote is likely to happen on Wednesday, July 15.
