First, a special thank you to those that prayed and took action on our last e-alert concerning HB663 and SB501.  It is vital that we oppose this legislation every step of the way. View our last e-alert for more information on these bills.

Consider the wise words of Proverbs 24:11,12, “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?”

Crisis pregnancy centers are called to do their part to deliver the unborn who are being drawn to slaughter.  They give the mothers alternatives of life.  This legislation would dictate that they be in option to the Word of God.

This is an issue of life and death as well as religious freedom.

House Bill HB663 passed the House Committee on Health February 7 and is now in the House Committee on Judiciary.

SB501 passed out of the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor and will now go before the Senate Committee on Ways and Means.

These votes could come up any day so please pray and take action immediately.

Take Action:

  1. Contact the members of the House Committee on Judiciary.  Ask each member to oppose HB663. Click here for the members’ names and contact information. Feel free to leave a message after hours.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Hawaii.
  2. Contact the members on the Senate Committee on Ways and Means.  Ask each member to oppose SB501. Click here for the members’ names and contact information. Feel free to leave a message after hours.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Hawaii.
  3. In addition, if time allows, please contact those on the previous committees that voted against this horrendous legislation. Thank them for their wisdom and courage.  Click on each name below for their contact information.

HB663 – Rep. Sharon Har (D-District 42), Rep. Marcus Oshiro (D-District 3), and Rep. Andria Tupola (R-District 43)

SB501 – Sen. Mike Gabbard (D-District 20)

  1. Please forward this e-alert on to friends and family and ask them to pray and act on this legislation.

Pray for each member by name on these committees. Pray they will understand that these centers are helping women in difficult situations at NO cost to taxpayers and that we should help, not harm, their efforts.

Pro-life counterparts in California warn that passage of these bills will open doors for lawsuits as it has done in California.  If these bills pass, it would force pro-life community pregnancy help centers to not only provide information about available abortion services, but promote abortion as an option.  Many of these pregnancy centers are operated by Christian ministries and have deep religious objections to the abortion practice.

For life!
