PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION BAN EASILY PASSED IN U.S. SENATE
Should Sail Through House! Bush Will Sign!
The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit (Ec 7:8).
On Thursday, the U.S. Senate voted 64-33 to ban partial-birth abortion. The House is expected to pass the ban with overwhelming help from both sides of the aisle. President George W. Bush is looking forward to signing the bill into law.
-"Partial-birth abortion is an abhorrent procedure that offends human dignity, and I commend the Senate for passing legislation to ban it. Today's action is an important step toward building a culture of life in America. I look forward to the House passing legislation and working with the Senate to resolve any differences so that I can sign legislation banning partial-birth abortion into law." Statement by the President
-"I congratulate the United States Senate on passing a ban on partial-birth abortion. Every child is a precious gift, and a civilized society recognizes and protects these gifts. Outlawing this gruesome procedure that offends the conscience will be a great step for the health, safety, and dignity of all Americans." Statement by Tommy G. Thompson, Secretary, Department of Health & Human Services
-"Today is a victory for our nation and for the most vulnerable members of the human family-babies who are literally a heartbeat away from being born." Statement by Dr. James Dobson, President, Focus on the Family
This is a great victory and Christians should rejoice. While the ban will stop only a small number of abortions, it is the first federal ban to actually restrict an abortion procedure since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and thus, a huge symbolic step forward. With our nation nearing war with Iraq and already at war with radical terrorists around the world, America must hasten to repent of its wholesale slaughter of innocent, pre-born babies. May we recommit ourselves to prayer and action until the abortion holocaust has ended!
Please Continue to PRAY for America's Repentance:
--Heavenly Father, THANK YOU for causing the Senate to ban this barbaric procedure. Grant its overwhelming passage in the House. We are grateful to have a President who will sign this into law.
--Help America to REPENT for passively allowing the murder of over 50 million innocent babies since 1972. Their blood has stained our country crimson red.
--As we REPENT, GRANT us YOUR WISDOM & GUIDE us with YOUR STRATEGIES to reverse Roe v. Wade. May it be done to Your Glory! In Jesus' Name, AMEN (Gen 4:11; Dt 21:1-9; Ps 1:1-3; 24: all; 106:38-39; Is 24:5-6; Dan 9:4-19; Joel 2:12-17).
