By | Maine | No Comments

I encourage all Maine pro-life citizens to contact Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-Maine), District 2, and thank him for his vote last Thursday in favor of H.R. 7 to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions. Click here to read the bill. The final vote was: 239 Republicans and three Democrats voting in favor, and one Republican and 178 Democrats opposing.

Here’s what the liberal media is saying about his vote:

It’s time to show Rep. Poliquin our support. We must let him know how much we appreciate his pro-life stance. E-mail Rep. Poliquin today and thank him for voting for H.R. 7. Then, ask others to do the same.

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), this Thursday, January 22.

Please help pass this legislation by calling our Maine Congressional delegates to the U.S. House of Representatives and ask for their support right away.

This measure will ban abortion after 20-weeks’ gestation. Exceptions to the bill would involve dangers to the life of the mother or cases of rape and incest. America is one of only seven nations out of 196 countries in the world to allow this holocaust.

H.R. 36 is sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Arizona) and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R–Tennessee).

Now that Republicans control the Senate, we are hopeful this important legislation will be brought to the floor in the spring. Please call the two Maine senators and request their support.

Please pray and ask the Lord to give us victory in this matter.

Thank you for making a difference right where you are to bring a Biblical perspective to public policy in Maine and our nation. Your involvement is critical, as always.

For Life!

Gov. LePage’s Veto Upheld – Abortion Providers Denied Additional Funds

By | Maine | No Comments

As you know, CWA of Maine opposed LD 1247 and encouraged you to do the same. This bill would have given more funding to Family Planning and Planned Parenthood, the two major abortion providers in Maine.

On April 28, Gov. Paul LePage vetoed LD 1247, and then on May 1, the House failed to override his veto. A 2/3 vote in the House and Senate were needed to override his veto.

In Gov. LePage’s letter to the Members of the 126th Legislature dated April 28, he outlined his reasons for the veto. Click to read letter.

Thank the Lord: Take a moment to thank the Lord for this wonderful victory.

Thank you: A hearty “Thank You!” for your faithful prayers and actions concerning LD 1247.
