SB501 passed out of the House Committee on Judiciary earlier this month and passed out of the House last week. The efforts to promote abortion clinics through Crisis Pregnancy Centers is abominable! Go to our state webpage for background information about this horrendous bill.

The Conference Committee has now scheduled a meeting for tomorrow, April 21 at 1:00 p.m. in conference room 016.  No written or verbal testimony is allowed.  We can though call the committee member offices and e-mail them our disapproval.

This is one more opportunity for us to pray and speak our piece.  It is not the time for the people of God to be silent on behalf of the least of these.  Regardless of the outcome, before God, we must not be silent.

If this bill passes, rumor has it that an immediate lawsuit will be filed against it as being unconstitutional because it is forcing these Pregnancy Centers to promote or offer info regarding positions they do not believe in, such as abortion.

Prayer is our most important weapon, so we must pray before we act.

Please Pray that SB501 will miraculously be stopped in Conference Committee tomorrow.  Pray for each committee member by name.

Action must not be overlooked.  For a faith is dead without it.

Take Action: Please contact each member of the committee.  Email and then follow-up with a phone call.  Respectfully communicate to them the disgust you have for SB501. Assure them that it is unconstitutional to force someone to do something like this against their religious beliefs.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Hawaii.
