It is with sadness that I report to you that the United States House of Representatives
failed to pass THE PRENDA ACT (Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act). This House bill would
have prevented abortions based solely on the sex of the child. Selective abortions are,
and should be, condemned by Christians.
Research indicates that sex selective abortions are, by nature, performed on late term
pregnancy. Fetal sex gender cannot be determined until approximately 18-20 weeks
of gestation. Therefore, healthy children are being aborted because of selfishness.
Dr. Richard Land stated, “it is staggering that in a nation where Gallup tells us that a
majority of Americans described themselves as pro-life, the Congress elected by that
same population could contain 168 members who are willing to go on record as refusing
to outlaw killing an unborn baby because it is the wrong sex.”
On another serious note, the 1st Circuit court of Appeals in Boston, MA, ruled the
Defense of Marriage Act (D.O.M.A.) unconstitutional. The three judge panel stated
that the D.O.M.A. law defining marriage “as a union between a man and a woman” deprives
gay couples of rights and privileges granted to heterosexual couples.
The vow of President Obama was to dismantle and destroy D.O.M.A. He pledged this
even before he was elected. Be in prayer, as D.O.M.A. will now head to the United
States Supreme Court over its “constitutionality.” Christians need to PRAY, PRAY, PRAY
that D.O.M.A. will be upheld.
Pray for the judges, Senators, and Representatives who are faithful to stand and support
marriage in it’s true Biblical form. Be sure and thank your elected officials who vote to
preserve the life of the unborn.
PARENTAL RIGHTS ACT
Be observant regarding House Joint Resolution 107 presented by U.S. Representative
Trent Franks of Arizona. Basically this constitutional amendment states that the liberty
of parents to direct the education of their children is a fundamental right. The United
States nor any state shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its
governmental interest as applied to a person is of the highest order.
This Parental Rights Act re-establishes proper and biblical directions by the parent for
the child. It protects the Christian parents, their children, and Christian colleges
and schools. The A.C.L.U. and other liberal organizations are opposed to this Act.
Keep this in mind as your are praying.
