Pregnancy Care Centers Forced to Direct Clients to Abortion Clinics if Legislation Passes

By | Hawaii | No Comments

 

“Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.  If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?” (Proverbs 24:11, 12,)

Update: SB501 SD1 has passed through yet another committee.  On Tuesday it passed the House Committee on Health .  It will now be voted on House Committee on Judiciary and the House Committee on Finance.  The vote is yet to be scheduled for both committees, but is expected any day. Very little notice is given, so please act now. Click here to view current statues.

SB501 SD1 “Requires all limited service pregnancy centers to disclose the availability of and enrollment information for reproductive health services; establishes privacy and disclosure requirements for individual records and information; authorizes civil penalties and civil actions for enforcement and remedy.”

Bottom line, pregnancy care centers will be required to provide information on local abortion clinics to their clients or break the law and face civil penalties and civil actions.

This bill is a battle for survival of the innocent unborn and the pregnancy care centers that advocate for them. View this excellent video we came across the other day.  It’s of a pastor pleading the case of his church.  Part of their church is a Pregnancy Care Center.  Therefore, their church could be forced to promote abortion. Click here to view video. And then, take action!

Please Take Action Immediately.

 Contact each committee member and ask him/her to vote NO on SB501 SD1. Email each committee member and then give them a call. Feel free to call and leave a message after hours.

More about SB501 SD1:

  • Requires pregnancy care centers to do what is in direct opposition to the centers’ very mission.
  • Is an attack on religious freedom.
  • Is an attack on free speech.
  • Is a “one-way street” that imposes no such requirement on abortion providers to advertise the services of pregnancy care centers.
  • Seeks to further the agenda of abortion providers.

Know that this is not a two-way street.  There is no such law in the legislature being considered that requires abortion clinics to give information out about pregnancy care centers.

Please, make your phone calls and send your emails now.  The very survival of pregnancy care centers and therefore the lives they seek to save and minister to depend on it.

Please Pray. Pray for the defeat of SB501 in the House Committee on Judiciary. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James 5:16)

Capitol Hill Brief — Inappropriate Ginsburg

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Here’s something we won’t hear from Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court: more political commentary, like the continuously inappropriate comments of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In her latest, she tells the BBC that, “A great man once said that the true symbol of the United States … is the pendulum, and when the pendulum swings too far in one direction, it will swing back.”

She said that because she’s not happy with President Donald Trump and now she wants the international community to know that he will not be in power forever.

How shameful from a sitting Supreme Court Justice.  We should be thankful Neil Gorsuch is not set to follow in her footsteps.


Our next Supreme Court justice will shape America’s future for generations to come. Judge Neil Gorsuch will uphold conservative, constitutional values. Tell the Senate to confirm him by signing our petition at www.CapitolHillBrief.org today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

 

Update on Simon’s Law – Parental Rights – Your Prays and Action Needed

By | Kansas | No Comments

Simon’s Law, SB 85 is now Substitute SB 85.  There was an approved amendment added. We are tracking several bills, but this one is needed desperately. We need your assistance now on this bill by praying and taking action.

Prayer is key!

Substitute SB 85, known as “Simon’s Law,” would enact new statutes regarding life-sustaining treatment for patients younger than eighteen years of age.  Parental consent under this bill is required before a do-not-resuscitate order is issued by medical professionals. This bill is needed. There have been incidents in the past where doctors have put a do-not-resuscitate order on the records of a child without the parents’ consent.

Status: Substitute SB 85 is in the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs and has not yet been voted on.  On February 16, I testified in support of the bill.  Click here to read the testimony.

Please Pray:  Pray the members of the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs will stand up for the rights of parents to protect their children.

A vote is expected any day on Substitute SB 85.  If the committee passes it, it will then go to the House floor, more than likely by next week.  When it passes the House, Gov. Brownback will have the opportunity to sign it into law.

 Take Action: Based on the comments and questions asked throughout the February 16 hearing, the committee appears to be in favor of passing the bill.  Therefore, please contact the Chairperson of the House Federal and State Committee, Rep. John Barker (R-District 70) here.  He has the power to bring it up for a vote.  Urge him to bring the Substitute Simon’s Law up for a vote in committee.  Then, please call Speaker of the House, Ron Rykman (R-District 78) here.  Ask him to allow Substitute SB 85 to be debated on the House Floor once it arrives after passing out of committee.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Kansas.

Thank you for your faithfulness in supporting Concerned Women for America of Kansas.

In His service,

Discourage Sex Trafficking

By | Maine | No Comments

As the State Director of CWA of Maine I submitted written testimony today to the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee regarding L.D. #250, “An Act to Increase the Penalty for Aggravated Sex Trafficking”.

Human trafficking and commercial sex exploitation are a violation of human rights and a form of sexual violence. It’s way past time to get tough on this heinous behavior going on in our state and nation.  Government’s priority is to protect the lives of innocent citizens.  We believe increasing the penalty for such acts of aggravated sex trafficking will take a giant step in doing just that.

Take Action: Please contact the members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and ask them to support this legislation.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Maine. For talking points, please read my written testimony.

Committee members:
Sen. Kimberley Rosen – – Chair: 207-287-1122 / [email protected]
Sen. Scott Cyrway – Chair: [email protected]
Sen. Bill Diamond- – Chair: [email protected]

Rep. Catherine Nadeau- – Chair: [email protected]
Rep. Lois Reckitt- – Chair: [email protected]
Rep. Rachel Talbot Ross: [email protected]

Please Pray: May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in thy sight, Oh Lord, our Strength and our Redeemer.  Pray this bill becomes law to punish the perpetrators of this heinous crime and discourage further acts moving forward.

Not One Reasonable Reason to Oppose Gorsuch

By | Legal, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

Washington, D.C. –Today, the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, will draw to a close.Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), the largest public policy organization for women in the country, had this to say on the performance of Judge Neil Gorsuch at his hearings to become the next justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Senate Democrats have tried every way they can to show from Neil Gorsuch’s record one reason to vote against him. But they have come up empty. There is not a single reasonable reason on Judge Gorsuch’s record to vote against him.

“Now, we know many object to President Trump or Steve Bannon or the Republicans’ treatment of Judge Garland, and they will choose the unprecedented, radical position not to vote for Judge Gorsuch as a result. But, looking at his record, he comes out of now his third day of hearings unscathed.

“He has been thoughtful, poised, reasonable, independent, caring, empathetic, and humble. He has shown himself to be beyond all reasonable doubt a mainstream nominee worthy of each and every senator’s vote.

“The thousands of members of Concerned Women for America around the country that I represent are united in asking all senators to put politics aside for once and act in the best interest of our country by voting for Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.”

For an interview with Penny Nance contact Janae Stracke [email protected] 712-269-1724.

Capitol Hill Brief — CWA is Your Voice Around the Nation

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America is your voice around the nation on issues you care about.  Recently, we have been speaking on behalf of Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.  Here is CWA’s Communications Coordinator Janae Stracke at a recent town hall meeting:

[AUDIO CLIP] Janae Stracke: It isn’t about the issues, which is what a lot of the people are talking about. The point is that he will rule on the law and not be creating legislation. … He was confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court without opposition, and I find it hard to believe that a judge who was appointed without opposition before would have a hard time now.

Your support is what makes this possible, so I want to thank you!


Our next Supreme Court justice will shape America’s future for generations to come. Judge Neil Gorsuch will uphold conservative, constitutional values. Tell the Senate to confirm him by signing our petition at www.CapitolHillBrief.org today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

 

Capitol Hill Brief — CWA of Maine Stands for Gorsuch

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Concerned Women for America of Maine state director Penny Morrell stood up for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court at a recent town hall meeting hosted by Sen. King.  Here is what she said:

[AUDIO CLIP] Penny Morrell: Thank you, Senator King. My name is Penny Morrell. I’m state director for Concerned Women for America of Maine. Thank you for having this forum tonight. I would urge you to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court because he is a strict constitutionalist. And it is not the job of the Supreme Court to make law; it is the job of the Supreme Court to be sure that any law is subject to the constitution as originally written.
