January Prolife Update
The first month in the new year will see two important dates.
January 22nd will mark the 36th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy in the United States, which has led to an estimated 50 million abortions since 1973. Prolife volunteers across the nation will join together in remembrance and prayer to remind our fellow citizens of the tragic loss of abortion and the sanctity of all human life. For a list of Sanctity of Human Life events in Michigan, please visit our website at www.rtl.org.
January 20th will see the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama. Change.gov, the web site of President-elect Obama has posted a document entitled “Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration.” The document was produced by abortion advocates (including Planned Parenthood and NARAL) who call on the President-elect to advance their agenda.
That agenda includes, among other things, providing tax-funded abortions, removing a clause which protects prolife health care providers from discrimination, putting forward a health care plan whose “benefits must include access” to “abortion care,” allowing tax dollars to fund organizations who promote abortion overseas, selecting only pro-choice judges and calling on Congress to pass the Freedom of Choice Act (legislation which would dismantle numerous state and federal prolife laws). They want all that within the first 100 days.
You can read this document online and write comments encouraging President-elect Barack Obama to avoid these policies:
