EXPOSING THE ABORTION AGENDA on the sidewalk and the Statehouse - KeepLifeLegal.

REAL BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS, BREAKING: Concrete Contractor Identified

It’s been very difficult for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast [PPFA] to build their proposed site built on South Claiborne Ave in the very heart of New Orleans. Planned Parenthood stooped so low that it used its racist roots to go for minority businesses to build their killing center AFTER no one would.

Planned Parenthood was supposed to be open for business/baby killing last year and because of the non-stop, diligent work from Louisiana Coalition for Life and the Archdiocese of New Orleans, the photo below shows the ‘progress’ since May of 2013. Read more of the history of Planned Parenthood in Louisiana here. Boycotting WORKS.

It was also noticed by KeepLifeLegal that during this tumultuous time in New Orleans history, THERE IS NO 40 DAYS FOR LIFE PRESENCE. How does this happen that the local 40 Days for Life has considered this campaign to be unimportant?

KeepLifeLegal is a supporter of 40 Days for LIFE. Here, we are appalled at the local level inactivity in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Planned Parenthood of New Orleans on South Claiborne Ave
Planned Parenthood of New Orleans on South Claiborne Ave

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Last week we wrote (see urgent update below) about the resumption of work at the Planned Parenthood proposed site in New Orleans.  Since then, we have confirmed that the company providing the concrete is Absolute Concrete Services.  Planned Parenthood has previously indicated that it was their inability to obtain concrete that was holding up the project.  Businesses doing business with Planned Parenthood say it is all about the money.  However, as one local pastor said, “you can’t wash the blood off of the money you receive from Planned Parenthood”.  Please contact Absolute Concrete Services and the other businesses helping to build this child killing center and help them understand this simple truth.

Also, The New Orleans Advocate published a story about the work going on at the Claiborne Avenue site and the effectiveness of pro-lifers.  God bless everyone who has joined us in this effort.

This is an urgent update.  Planned Parenthood and their General Contractor, Barre McNeely, have resumed work on the Claiborne Avenue abortion facility in New Orleans.  Several businesses have been identified as participating in this project and we urge you to contact businesses on the list of those helping to build the Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

Share with these businesses in a respectful and polite way that this is an abortion facility.  Please be sure that you are calling and writing from the most current list and please share this information with friends and family, including social media.  If you receive a response from any of the businesses, we would appreciate it if you would share that with us on the Contact Us page of the website.

For over eight months, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility site at 4636 S. Claiborne Avenue had remained quiet.  The only thing growing was weeds.   In January of this year, the Louisiana Department of Health denied Planned Parenthood a “Certificate of Need”.  This is a legally required permit issued by the state upon certification that a medical or abortion facility is actually needed in the geographical area.  Planned Parenthood maintained that New Orleans should have 2,844 more abortions than are currently performed in the New Orleans area and they (Planned Parenthood) want to sell those additional abortions.  The State of Louisiana has ruled that there are already enough facilities providing abortions in Greater New Orleans.  Planned Parenthood is appealing the state’s decision.

Without this “Certificate of Need”, Planned Parenthood cannot legally operate an abortion facility in New Orleans.  However, this week, they began working at the site again and apparently are trying to repair the foundation and preparing to pour concrete, perhaps as early as next week.  That is why it is urgent that we reach out to those now working at the site.

#Prolife #Arkansas tells #40DaysForLife vigil they can’t have signs?

KEEPLIFELEGALI see…new rules? According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, after 8 successful, peaceful vigils since 2011, 40 Days for Life can’t have signs? And even if this was a statute for some years, why now? Even at Planned Parenthood, where 40 Days Fayetteville holds their vigil, said “the issue was between the state and the protesters, and that her group had no comment.”

The Highway Department has received a faxed letter of protest from a legal firm representing the group, a spokesman confirmed Thursday. The letter alleges that the state is violating the group’s First Amendment rights to free speech.

A letter from the Thomas More Society, who represents the national40 Days for LIFE 40 Days vigils, said: “We respectfully maintain that her directives — attempting to prohibit First Amendment activity on public property, including sidewalks along a state highway — were overly broad and, if enforced, they would be a clear violation of our client’s First Amendment rights.”

40 Days for Life in Fayetteville is the only 40 Days vigil in Arkansas and has seen “better-than-usual participation”, according to Sheena Archambault, coordinator of the 40 Days for Life Campaign.  Planned Parenthood of Fayetteville does offer abortion ‘services’ and contraception [abortifacients].

KEEPLIFELEGALWhat is interesting is that Planned Parenthood ‘has no opinion’ and seem undeterred while the state of Arkansas is pushing an unconstitutional ordinance on people who are peacefully protesting. Does anyone really know WHO made the complaint about the signs? Planned Parenthood of Fayetteville may not have a public ‘opinion’, but PP has never been….truthful.

Arkansas calls itself a “prolife state” but now shows that they may not be as prolife as the new Governor, Asa Hutchinson, purports to be.

Governor Hutchinson, what is your opinion of this obvious unconstitutional sudden ‘ban’ on signs…or is this a targeted attempt to keep the reality of unborn child killing a secret in The Natural State?

REAL BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS: Urgent Update!

Boycotting works, along with prayer and persistence. This regional killing center is strategically centered in the heart of New Orleans to draw ‘customers’ from ‘local’ abortion facilities and Mississippi, which has just one abortion facility located in Jackson. This is a business move, not a bloated mission to serve the underserved. This will be a multi-million dollar BABY KILLING BUSINESS.

Don’t believe the Planned Parenthood LIE: There are HUNDREDS of health centers and life-minded family centers who serve women and their families all over the state of Louisiana.

NO ONE NEEDS ABORTION. EVER.

UPDATE [2/27/2015]: From Louisiana Coalition for LIFE regarding the proposed Planned Parenthood mega-killing center in the heart of New Orleans:

“This is an urgent update.  Planned Parenthood and their General Contractor, Barre McNeely, have resumed work on the Claiborne Avenue abortion facility in New Orleans.  Several businesses have been identified as participating in this project and we urge you to contacbusinesses on the list of those helping to build the Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

#Pittsburgh PUBLIC SCHOOLS allow #PlannedParenthood to teach sex ed

FACT: Did you know that the National Education Associationthe largest labor union in the U.S. & HATES homeschooling, is in bed with Planned Parenthood, the Walmart of abortion? No? Then I would encourage you to google “NEA and Planned Parenthood” and to click here to see what they believe and who they give money to.

NOW you shouldn’t be so shocked by their ‘marriage’, but you should be INCENSED.

Parents absentmindedly send their children to schools full of women and men who are indoctrinating them with the Gay Agenda, Islam, all Liberal Agenda, reproductive freedom [for students],  keeping parents out of an abortion decision, EMILY’s List, NOW, etc.

A teacher in Lawrence County [PA] writes, “If my dues to the union at the local, state and national level do not fund political activities, then why is the NEA reporting that these activities are funded? If one follows the money, part of my pay funds abortions. As an adoptive parent, I should not be required to give one fraction of one cent towards abortion and will not be forced into doing so.” Read the rest here.

And now Pittsburgh PUBLIC SCHOOLS allows your kids to be indoctrinated with Planned Parenthood with their sex ed program. Click here to see PP sex ed; you will be shocked at what they teach CHILDREN…without apology, usurping a parent’s rights and decisions.

Two questions: Where are the parents AND there was only ONE no vote:

“The 6-1 vote came after board member Mark Brentley Sr. raised opposition, criticizing the history of Planned Parenthood, questioning what its role would be in the schools and saying it would put students at risk. Only Mr. Brentley voted in opposition. Members Terry Kennedy and Sherry Hazuda were absent.”

Oh, and there’s this: Taxpayers get to pay for it…not just Pittsburgh taxpayers, but YOU AND ME:

“Ms. Allen said Planned Parenthood is seeking a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the program. It is expected the organization will know whether it got the grant in July.”

In the video below, Judy Bruns tells her personal story of how NEA uses your parental rights to further the Liberal Agenda, fund abortion, the LGBT AND gave over 50 MILLION to Obama’s campaign:

#TBT: Protesters as Terrorists goes JUST ONE WAY.

Although this information came from a 2009 article and report, the impression that conservative protesters are terrorists has not changed:

Just weeks after a scandal erupted over a Department of Homeland Security report that described as “right-wing extremists” those who oppose abortion and support secure national borders, another report is revealing that the Department of Defense is teaching that protesters are “low-level terrorists.”

Do you have the audacity to:

  • Oppose abortion
  • Oppose same-sex marriage
  • Oppose restrictions on firearms
  • Oppose lax immigration laws
  • Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs
  • Oppose continuation of free trade agreements
  • Are suspect of foreign regimes
  • Fear Communist regimes
  • Oppose a “one world” government
  • Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world
  • Are upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India, and more

Looks like this so-called terrorism only goes ONE WAY? 

When we attended the protest at the Texas state capital July of 2013, it was the ultra liberal protesters clad in orange that brought and/or threatened to bring used tampons, excrement and bottles of urine. I’m sure they forgot how they literally spit on prolifers and taunted? OH….did I mention that many of them were PAID to be there? Personally, I brought a big hat to keep the sun off my face. How’s that for extreme?

#BREAKINGNEWS: #Prolife Movement Mourns the Loss of Dr. John Willke

FROM RIGHT TO LIFE OF GREATER CINCINNATI: Sad News Today: Pro-Life Movement Mourns Loss of Legendary Leader Dr. John Willke.

We were personally blessed by Dr. Willke during Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill committee meetings; I had the distinct honor to hear Dr. Willke testify for the unborn. Thank you, Dr. Willke, we are all blessed to know you. I am so pleased that the first Saints you will meet in Heaven are the lives you have saved from abortion. See Dr. Willke’s testimony in the video below.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, February 21, 2015 (Cincinnati, OH): The pro-life movement worldwide mourns the loss of Dr. John Willke, who slipped quietly from this earth Friday evening, February 20, 2015, just two months short of his 90th birthday. His beloved wife, Barbara, preceded him in death April 2013—a soul mate he missed deeply.

“Dr. Willke was the leading statesman addressing the second civil rights struggle of our nation,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “He met with presidents and popes and crossed the globe, but his passion was always to ensure the right to life for helpless unborn children and other vulnerable people.”

Dr. Willke was a physician, author, lecturer, TV and radio personality, and expert in human sexuality. Until recently, he served as president of the national Life Issues Institute, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. He served for ten years as president of the U.S. National Right to Life Committee, and helped found the International Right to Life Federation.

His daily 5-minute radio program was carried on almost 400 radio stations for 18 years. His one-minute comments, Life Jewels, were broadcast in English and Spanish on over 1,000 stations reaching the U.S., Australia, South Africa, and Brazil.

Dr. and Mrs. Willke co-authored Abortion, Questions and Answers: Why Can’t We Love Them Both; Handbook on Abortion; Abortion and Slavery, History Repeats; Assisted Suicide & Euthanasia, Past & Present; plus six other books on human sexuality, videos, brochures, and more. Their works have been translated in over 30 languages worldwide.

Just last month, Dr. and Mrs. Willke’s autobiography Abortion and the Pro-Life Movement: An Inside View was released, chronicling the life of this legendary couple. They were devoted to their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and in all things strengthened by their strong Catholic faith.

Amidst these many efforts, Dr. and Mrs. Willke also founded Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati in the early 1970s and shared chairmanship for several years. They also founded the state organization, Ohio Right to Life, in Cincinnati at that time, then moved it to Columbus a few years later.

“Dr. Willke was a true giant in the pro-life movement, yet always warm, always humble, a mentor and a friend,” said Jack Hart, President, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “We can never replace him. We can only do our best to carry on his legacy, and redouble our efforts to create the culture of life that he worked so hard and so well to bring about.”

BREAKING: #NewMexico Legislators say NO to Late-Term Abortion, AGAIN.

After the bitter defeat of the late-term abortion ban in Albuquerque in 2013, legislation was moved forward yesterday to protect unborn babies from late-term abortion in New Mexico:

“House Bill 390 cleared the House Regulatory and Public Affairs Committee on a vote of 4-3, with Republicans in support of it and Democrats opposed…..It goes next to the House Judiciary Committee….It’s part of a renewed push this year by abortion opponents who are buoyed by the Republican takeover of the state House in the November elections….The legislation would ban abortions in or after the 20th week of pregnancy…..Some late-term procedures can take up to five days to perform and cost many thousands of dollars.” Read the rest here

Most people do not know that Albuquerque is the late-term abortion capital of America, maybe the world. In Albuquerque,  women and girls can abort UP TO TERM regardless of the circumstances of the pregnancy.

New Mexico does not have waiting periods or parental consent laws like most states currently have. Women and girls are given no options the day of their appointment other than to abort that day.

Up-to-term abortionist Susan Robinson is one of handful of abortionists who support killing up to term in New Mexico; read an interview of how she defends killing perfectly healthy nearly to term babies here. Everything about up-to-term abortion is disturbing – takes up to five days to ‘perform’, the inhuman methods, costs thousands of dollars, etc. Many times the baby does not ‘come out’ whole:

“Abortions performed after 20 weeks gestation, when not done by induction of labor (which leads to fetal death due to prematurity), are most commonly performed by dilation and evacuation (D & E) procedures. These particularly gruesome surgical techniques involve crushing, dismemberment and removal of a fetal body from a woman’s uterus, mere weeks before, or even after, the fetus reaches a developmental age of potential viability outside the mother.  In some cases, especially when the fetus is past the stage of viability, the abortion may involve administration of a lethal injection into the fetal heart in utero to ensure that the fetus is not pulled out alive or with the ability to survive.” Read the rest of the report from the Lozier Institute here.

Women come from all over the world to kill their nearly-to-term babies in Albuquerque, most recently from the United Kingdom a young woman traveled with her rabid pro-abortion father by her side who was pressuring her to have the abortion at 30 weeks. Read the rest of her story here. Sadly, she aborted her child.

But much is the ‘norm’, if you can call it that, in the Albuquerque up-to-term abortion business.

Further, the Lozier Institute report on Late-Term Abortions says, “Abortion rights advocates have long insisted that late-term abortions are performed only in dire circumstances involving threats to a mother’s life or in cases of severe fetal anomaly.  However, the above study, despite its limitations, suggests otherwise.  The characteristic similarities and delay commonalities observed across first trimester and late-term abortion groups suggest that women who seek abortion share similar characteristics across gestational ages.

#TOLERANCE BYTES: The Michael Brown Effect

One day *Ferguson was a normal under-performing suburb with families and immigrants and refugees trying to get along their daily lives, some living hand-to-mouth, some on the street, some doing better. Ferguson is just like a lot of other outlying burbs next to major cities, some do better or worse than others. In this economy, I would call Ferguson ‘normal’. And just like most burbs next to major cities, Ferguson has a median income of $36K, median home of $92K, lost about 5% of population since the last census, 65% black/30% white; in other words, Ferguson is doing way better economically than most burbs next to major cities, including where I live. But what we did not know was how Ferguson was hanging precariously in the balance. The racial divide was about to erupt.

KEEPLIFELEGALPredicting this racial eruption was not as hard as you would think, if you add the slumping economy into the mix. People on hard times react differently than normal, they feel cornered and on edge. Life is hard when there is limited work and opportunities.

And then August 9th happened. It was the match that lit a fire, and that fire spread from all over Ferguson and across the country, causing racial division and hatred. This was not a civil rights case, and if it were, it does not give leeway to commit crimes of any kind. People of Ferguson and across the country decided to commit crimes in Mike Brown’s name to give it ‘credibility’ and an excuse.

However, this article is not about Michael Brown, it is about the effect his case made to make normal every day people to loot, set fires, roll cars, etc. This is about how close we are to every religion or race to erupt and cause what may be irreversible harm and injury to everyone.

American citizens are being indoctrinated with Islam, it being calledKEEPLIFELEGAL a ‘peaceful religion’. We see muslims literally imported to the United States taking our own resources we cannot have. Schools are allowing Islam in, forcing Christianity OUT. Some schools have field trips to mosques, girls told to wear hijab. But as I just mentioned, the resources are given to them while decent tax paying citizens are living in their cars and eating at soup kitchens because these so-called refugees are given whatever they want, including money to open their own business, etc.

Peaceful? Peace loving? So were the residents of Ferguson. So were the residents of Los Angeles in the South Central riots of 1992 that killed 53. So were the residents of Detroit in the Race Riots of 1967 that killed 43. The list of riots that was caused by race, religion or economics is enormous. In other words, people riot or cause war because of an injustice or perceived injustice. Remember that Rodney King said, “Can’t we all get along?” We war each other but a new war is on the horizon.

As I said earlier, this article is not about Ferguson, but what happened to Ferguson and Los Angeles and Detroit should remind us that riots and war can happen with just one match.

Obama has once again stepped on the toes of our Founding Fathers with the blood of Christians being beheaded by Islam, and more recently 40 people were set on fire while still alive. And don’t believe the out loud ‘disassociation’ with ISIS from Islam, certainly ISIS isn’t Buddhist or Baptist – they are ISLAM; they all read the same Koran.

Obama said, “No religion is responsible for terrorism…..And we are not at war with ­Islam…..Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding” which is all a diabolical lie. Religion put Jesus Christ on a Cross to die a humiliating public death, just to name ONE act of religious terrorism. See the White House conference on “countering violent extremism” video here and read the rest here. Obama’s facts are just a bit off. Why? Because Barack Hussein Obama is protecting Islam in America.

The Koran teaches Islam to hate Christians, to kill them. This plays out in plain sight and still no one pays attention. Since 9/11, Americans are lulled asleep with lies of a religion that hates them. Our resources are used against us while our ‘president’ looks on.

The Michael Brown Effect is close, all of the pieces are in place for Islam to rise in the United States, first to cause unrest, if you can call it that after 9/11 – and then war. Just like Ferguson, every day life was what it was, predictable. And today we are just as asleep at the wheel as they were. Did Ferguson know they would riot on August 8th? No…and neither do Americans trust in the signs of the times while Islam consumes Christians one country at a time. Just one match can set a fire; just one death can cause a riot. What will it take for Islam to make sense to the average individual that they will take no prisoners?

What Ferguson did not realize is that all the pieces were in place on August 8th, tensions were high and tight, ready to do battle. What they did not know is when. When hate and race and religion are picked at long enough, August 9th will happen again – this time with Islam.

The Church needs to know their community so well that they can sense a change in the weather. Pastors are not watchman as they are called to be. If Pastors cannot discern the times, then how can they righteously arm their flock properly with the knowledge of the Word of God and the times to come?

What will be that one match to start that fire? Until that day, we may not know. Active terrorism in America is a breath away, the signs are obvious and the sky is dark. Make no mistake Christian – we will see tribulation. Soon. Because America has been tolerant, nearly to death.

Jesus said, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;  and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:2-3

AND:

 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.” Ezekiel 33:7

Christian, you may think you know persecution, but I assure you that the 21 Coptic Christians would disagree with you. Persecution is coming to America, to the Church, and to every Christian in the name of a ‘peaceful religion’ and Obama has nodded in approval.

#TOLERANCE BYTES: Who is that one guy who preached against abortion? or, The Audacity of Matt Chandler.

That should NEVER be a question nor the exception. EVERY Pastor should be preaching against abortion so much so that the church member should be able to preach the message themselves. Just as every Christian needs to know the plan of Salvation, they too should know the Message of LIFE.

KEEPLIFELEGALThe prolife world went crazy with a Pastor that actually preached against abortion – and while that is a great thing, why is it not normal or typical of the church? Why is this so rare that the entire prolife movement made this go viral?

I am not criticizing Matt Chandler’s message. Not at all. He had the guts to call out abortion in a mega church – not a small church where you know most of the members but a church system that has ‘campuses’. But because the 51 minute message is so taboo – even in the church – he took 12 minutes to ease the crowd with anecdotes of his family life, 20 minutes to say when life begins, and finally 22 minutes to say the word “ABORTION”. What this proves is that Pastors are FEARFUL of speaking out on the murder of innocent children in the womb.

I used to believe that people hated the Message of LIFE because it KEEPLIFELEGALwas offensive to them, maybe from a past abortion experience, but I don’t think that’s true anymore.  The real reason is that when you hear the Message of LIFE, you are now responsible to be diligent in all aspects of what God wants from us, to protect His immeasurable Creation, one unborn child at a time. Now, it’s on YOU.

Why are Pastors fearful of the Message of LIFE? Money. Agenda. Power. Money. Have Pastors shown favor to those that can lift them up rather than to the lost, the dying, the infirm:

“Who do we give this power to?” said Pastor Chandler regarding making some human beings not as important as others, much like how Nazi Germany and plantation owners did. 

KEEPLIFELEGALThe Church has to stand in the Gap. There is no other way. Holding a sandwich just far enough from the homeless man to keep his attention is not the way to preach the Message; that only prolongs his hunger for the sandwich. The GOSPEL is what the lost and dying need, not bait.

PASTORS: If your church does not preach Life continually and does not have an active LIFE ministry, then you’re just playing church placating your own agenda. If you were a Doctor, would you tell the truth to your patient? Then why aren’t you doing the same for your own Church?

Your church is tolerating abortion if it is not actively preaching against abortion. The Church can’t have it both ways. Far too long have people assumed that the Church and all Christians are against abortion; while in theory they are, but not in action or deed.

 

 

ANSWER: Cronyism, Elitism, Division – QUESTION: How to get a #prolife law passed in #Ohio.

The Heartbeat Bill has been introduced again at the Ohio Statehouse for the THIRD time…why so many times? Because legislators who PROMISED to get this bill through has been shaken down by Ohio Right to Life….for the THIRD time.

The Coward-in-Chief Senate President Keith Faber said today“What you’re doing is saying you’re risking throwing out all of the things we’ve done to save babies in exchange for having a political argument.” Sounds awfully prideful? Faber had promised to back this Bill and turned; he ultimately lied to every person who voted for him. KEEPLIFELEGAL

Faber also accused Rep. Matt Lynch of wanting to kill babies because he introduced the Bill in lameduck: “I don’t know why Rep. Lynch would want to kill babies,” he said. “The heartbeat bill could lead to striking down laws that were passed and upheld. Rep. Lynch would have to answer that question himself. Certainly we think the heartbeat bill moves the cause of anti-abortion back.”

Wouldn’t you think that Ohio Right to Life would be square behind a bill that would save so many babies? Then, what’s their problem? Easily, if there isn’t so much to do  then they stand not to get the donations they need to stay ‘alive'; their political pull and necessary legislators would all go away. ORTL bellows about the constitutionality of the Heartbeat Bill but it’s ORTL who says they want to overturn Roe which seems awfully contradictory. ORTL makes absolutely no sense and has since caused great division, cronyism and elitism in the prolife community in Ohio. ORTL has proven they are not prolife.

KEEPLIFELEGAL
Three tubs of aborted babies, now medical ‘waste’.

And in the meantime,  Ohio Right to Life mafia has been picking off our so-called prolife legislators to not back a bill that would save 96% of unborn babies but is behind a 20 week ban that was recently introduced. Do the math: The last report for abortions in Ohio states that 0.7% abortions occurred at 20+ weeks which breaks down to 173 babies died from three to four day late-term abortion procedures in 2013. However, 23,036 babies were aborted before 20+ weeks. SO, a 20 week ban would have saved 173 babies; the Heartbeat Bill would have saved about 22,280 which is SIXTY ONE BABIES PER DAY.

Save 173 or 22,280? “The 20-weeks bill is among the priorities this session for Ohio Right to Life…”. There you go. Ohio Right to Life would rather save 173 babies rather than nearly all of them. That is irresponsible and damnable.

Linda Porter of Faith2ActionTo answer the questions about the Bill, Janet Porter released this today:

“While claiming to be pro-life, Ohio Senate President Keith Faber is using his powerful position to speak out against the most protective pro-life bill in the Ohio House of Representatives. The Heartbeat Bill, H.B. 69, was re-introduced this week in the Ohio House with 50 co-sponsors–enough to pass the bill. Once law, the Heartbeat Bill will protect unborn children whose heartbeats can be heard.

“Senate President Keith Faber claims that passing a bill to protect children could somehow hurt the effort to protect children—it’s absurd.” stated Janet (Folger) Porter, President of Faith2Action, who initiated the Heartbeat Bill.

“What has happened to Senator Faber?” asked Lori Viars of Warren County Right to Life. “Why does he favor the least protection for unborn children when he could be fighting for the most protection? I miss the old Keith Faber—the pro-life conservative that we knew and loved.”

“While a heartbeat is not the beginning of life, it is a universally-accepted indicator of life,” said Porter. “Why would Senator Faber and Republicans in the Senate ignore this indicator of life when it comes to our most vulnerable children?”

“Faber’s claims about the Heartbeat Bill harming other pro-life laws is countered by language in the bill itself,” said Porter. “The Heartbeat Bill expressly states (Section 2919.19, lines 373-374) that it will NOT affect other pro-life laws currently in place.”

“Call Senator Faber at 614-466-7584 and ask him to be consistent: use the same indicator of life for babies that we use for everyone else,” added Porter.

If you have voted for a prolife legislator that is not backing every bit of prolife legislation that crosses their desks, call them, email them. YOU have a right to know why they are NOT doing their job and demand they do what they were elected for.
