There are two resolutions set to be heard this Wednesday in committee at our state capitol that commend Planned Parenthood when they should be condemning them.
SCR85 / SR56: “Affirming the state of Hawaii’s support of Planned Parenthood, recognizing its vital role in providing health care, and denouncing violence towards abortion providers and their patients.”
Even though these resolutions do not have any power of law behind them, the state senators proposing them should be ashamed of such a statement of support for this organization of death. The very thing this resolution proposes to oppose (violence) it advocates on an incomprehensible scale – the snuffing out of little boys and girls to the tune of over 300,000 per year across the country in horrifically violent ways.
The Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health has scheduled a public hearing this Wednesday, March 23 at 9:30 a.m.
Sponsors of SCR85 and SR56:
Sen. Rosalyn H. Baker (D-District 6)
Sen. Laura H. Thielen (D-District 25)
Sen. Jill N. Tokuda (D-District 24)
Sen. Suzanne Chun Oakland (D-District 13)
Sen. Lorraine R. Inouye (D-District 4)
Sen. Michelle N. Kidani (D-District 18)
Sen. Donna Mercado Kim (D-District 14)
Sen. Maile S.L. Shimabukuro (D-District 21)
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.” (Ephesians 5:11-13)
