PRO-LIFE ‘TURF BATTLE’ PREVENTING VOTE ON BILL TO BAN NEARLY ALL ABORTIONS
PRO-LIFE ‘TURF BATTLE’ PREVENTING VOTE ON BILL TO BAN NEARLY ALL ABORTIONS
Ask the Lord to free the vote on this bill before Congress and save countless lives that weigh in the balance.
“Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.” (Ps 139:16)
Pro-life groups and members of Congress are divided over whether on the day of the March for Life, the U.S. House should vote on a bill that would ban nearly all abortions, or instead a bill to ban infanticide after botched abortions.
The Heartbeat Protection Act would make it illegal to abort babies whose heartbeats can be detected.
“It’s the most protective incremental bill in existence,” said one of its organizers, Janet Porter of Faith2Action.
The U.S. House is slated to vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would expand Bush-era anti-infanticide protections for babies born alive during botched abortions, on January 19 as hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists march through D.C.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act has 87 cosponsors. The Heartbeat Protection Act has 169 cosponsors.
Fetal heartbeats begin at 21 days and can usually be measured around six weeks into pregnancy.
Under the Heartbeat Bill, babies with detectable heartbeats who are conceived in rape cannot be aborted….
The Heartbeat Bill supporters also argue that their bill will be upheld by the Supreme Court, especially after President Trump makes his next appointment to the court when a justice dies or retires.
“The next appointment to the Supreme Court makes it very likely that a Heartbeat Bill would be upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court,” the Heartbeat Bill’s sponsor Rep. Steve King, R-IA, told LifeSiteNews.
Voting to allow abortions on babies with beating hearts would also likely speak volumes about the beliefs of pro-abortion Democrats….
The Heartbeat Bill “has more than earned a place” on the U.S. House floor, said King. He said soon he’ll be left with two choices: “simply give up and put the bill in the drawer” or “do the things that now make people uncomfortable.”…
‘This is your moment to act’….
“There’s no reason not to do it…I’m actually losing money” by funding this, said Porter. “If you want to do more than march to end abortion, this is your moment to act.” (Excerpts from Claire Chretien’s article on LIFE Site News.)

I agree with all these prayers. and i pray that no more innocent blood would be on your childrens hands, dear Lord, for they take our tax money and kill children with it. Lord, did Lot have to go through this?, yet you said he was vexed daily because of the sin that surrounded him and also affected him. So deliver us, your children, from such corruption. and deliver the babies Lord, as well as the would be mothers. In Jesus name, Amen
Previous replies were all stated very well. The people that continue to support Roe v Wade talk about “pro-choice”. I also believe in choice which means all women can choose to have sex or not. If the choice is to have sex then the consequences go along with that choice. The choice is over and that tiny embryo has the right to life. It is God’s right to expect that tiny life lives and that people respect it and don’t murder His creation. Trying to determine when the little life can be aborted is crazy. It IS living even when it is just 2 cells. Prayer is what we all must do!
Roe versus Wade should never have become a law. Abortion is first degree murder. The unborn fetus
does not have “RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS” because it did not have the right
to life. Recently Planned Parenthood called abortion “A SACRED BLESSING”. It is not sacred. It is not
a blessing. It is murder – first degree murder. My prayer is that Roe versus Wade will be reversed and
the abortion will stop.
Very well stated.
1. Thank you, Rep. Steve King (R-IA)& staff(Heartbeat bill Sponsor), all 169 co-sponsors, all 88 co-sponsors of the impending “Born-Alive-” Act, Janet Porter (Faith2Action), entire staff of Intercessors for America), all pro-life groups and participants (whether on-site or remote) and all prayer-warriors worldwide for your roles in furthering this vitally-important issue.
2. I PRAy: Heavenly Father, please enlighten, awaken, humble, turn/help and forgive us (mankind), regarding this horrific and deceptive abomination of abortion, — for our good and Your glory, in Jesus’ precious loving name, amen.
3. The mass majority of ordinary people are unaware that this is only spiritual warfare, craftily waged by Satan, through (once-uninformed?) opportunistic lobbying groups, to (masses of) unsuspecting individuals, under the auspices of moral vs. immoral values (with each ‘side’ passionately claiming the ‘moral’, or compassionate, stance).
4. Mere words can’t even begin to describe the magnanimous snaky deception that Satan continually spins into it. If this were not the case, then, (among mUCH else), there would be no problem with allowing pro-life options and preventive measures in abortion ‘clinics’.
5. As always, all replies, whether in agreement or disagreement, are very prayerfully welcome and encouraged. and, last, but not least…
6. 2 Chronicles 7:14 New International Version (NIV)
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Thank you for your well thought out post. I have been praying that verse (2 Chronicles 7:14) for years but especially in these days of Satan’s stronger attacks. We also need to pray for those who don’t know or don’t follow God’s word. There is no question the will of God concerning this attack. We must do as God said in this verse. I like the part that says we must turn from our wicked ways or repent THEN God will heal our land. Dear Lord help us to practice what is said in the verse because our country needs your healing.
Lord help our country to see that we are hurting babies and ourselves as we shall surely reap what we sow !In Jesus we pray Amen
Praying that God himself will opened blind eyes in order that they might see the Abomination of abortion. We are killing babies. God forgive us help us and stop us in Jesus name.
Dear Pro-life Congress men and women, I want you to know I am Pro-life as well. I am praying God will help all of us to reverse Roe vs Wade and replace it with righteous legislation that will honor God and our country that will do do away with all abortions.May God bless us all of us in this Godly labour of Love. In Jesus’ name and for His glory I pray these things. Amen.
It breaks my heart that as a country we except the many abortions that take place on a daily basis. I know we could come up with a better solution for this. Why not let all children have the right to the same life that we expect! What about couples who can’t have children these aborted babies could be placed in these homes. Some couples play thousands of dollars over seas to have children! I pray our leadership and our Supreme Court will over turn Roe vs. Wade!!
Beautifully put ! From your mouth and mouse to God’s ear ! In Jesus Amen
