"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found"  (Psalm 32:6)

CLONING VOTE TUESDAY!
Measure a Must-Win for Life, America
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Is 5:20)

OVERVIEW:

This week the "Human Cloning Prohibition Act" (H.R. 2505) was passed out of the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 18-11. The full House is expected to vote on the measure next Tuesday, July 31. If enacted the bill will make cloning, attempting to clone a human being and trafficking in human clones federal crimes. Penalties will include a minimum fine of $1 million and up to 10 years in prison. Rep. Dave Weldon (R-FL) and Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) crafted this critically important, bipartisan measure.

--An alternative cloning bill, H.R. 2608, will be introduced Tuesday by Rep. Jim Greenwood (R-Pa) as a "substitute amendment." Greenwood's bill would allow what biotech firms call "research" or "therapeutic" cloning. Such firms would be authorized to create what pro-life groups call "human embryo farms" where embryos would be produced for medical research.

--Between now and Tuesday, representatives of over 1,000 biotech firms will be pressuring House members to pass the Greenwood measure and to reject Weldon-Stupak.

--Sen. Sam Brownback is introducing a Senate version of the desirable cloning prohibition.

--Human "cloning" is the creation of a human life by duplicating the cells of another human being without the normal God-given means of reproduction, i.e., the uniting of a male sperm and a female ovum.

Please Join Us in Believing, Prayer:

--Father, You alone are our Father from whom all fatherhood flows. INTERVENE, we pray, to stop our meddling in affairs that belong to You alone. NEUTRALIZE the effects of the biotech big-business lobbyists. ENABLE the members of the House to pass the Weldon-Stupak anti human cloning bill next week. CAUSE sufficient numbers of Senators to sponsor and support Sam Brownback's sister bill. In Jesus' Name. Amen (Gen 11:3-9; Dt 29:29; 30:19-20; Rom 12:3; Eph 3:14-15; Jas 4:6-10).
