PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION BAN
Bill Goes to Congress for a Final Vote

I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live (Dt 30:19).

The long sought-after Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act (PBABA), sponsored by Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH) and Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), has been reconciled by the Senate-House Conference Committee, reported to both Houses of Congress and will face a final vote in both houses soon.

  • Sen. Tom Harkin's amendment expressing support for Roe v. Wade was stricken from the bill in Conference by a party-line vote.
  • The House may pass the final bill as early as tomorrow, Thursday, October 2. The Democrat opposition will likely delay a vote in the Senate, at least until Oct. 13, when Congress will return from a 10-day recess.
  • A filibuster by pro-abort Democrats is possible. PBABA passed the Senate by a vote of 63 to 33 with 4 pro-abort Democrats not voting. Forty-one votes are needed to sustain a filibuster.
  • PBABA, first introduced in 1995, has twice passed Congress. The Senate failed to override Presidential vetoes by President Bill Clinton. President Bush is eager to sign the bill.
  • ·Should PBABA pass, pro-aborts vow immediately to challenge it in the federal courts. They contend it lacks a "health exception" and, therefore, is no different from the Nebraska ban declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 2000.

The PBABA will be the first federal restriction on an act of abortion since its practice was declared a constitutional right 30 years ago. Pro-aborts rightly see this as major step toward overturning Roe v. Wade. If God's people repent and pray we will see an end to federally mandated legal abortion in America.


Please Join Us in Unceasing Prayer:

  • Lord, may the Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act quickly pass both Houses of Congress. STOP any possible filibuster! (Ps 98:1; 1 Cor 15:57-58)
  • Lord, PREVAIL in every effort to overturn PBABA (Ps 82: all).
  • Grant America REVIVAL & REFORMATION, without which our nation is doomed. In Jesus, Name, Amen (Ps 21:11-13; 64:2-9; 94:20-21; Jer 7:5-7; 22:3-5; Joel 3:19; Acts 3:19).
