L.D. 1025 is a very dangerous bill that mandates the encouragement of the homosexual lifestyle. The proposed legislation is an assault on a patient’s right to obtain the professional help they are seeking for unwanted attractions. The state would be inappropriately intruding in private counseling situations – counseling that has helped thousands achieve the goals the patient is seeking. Denying this therapy, which has had well-documented success, is not the role of government.
It is an assault on parental rights, children’s rights, and the rights of professionals to do their job without the fear of losing their license.
You can find the text of the bill, committee information, sponsors and keep updated on the status here.
Lawmakers take notice when you are willing to take time off from work and come to Augusta to take a stand on a bill. If they hear from just four people, they take notice and study the issue. That is why we are asking you again to come to Augusta, if possible, on Wednesday, April 10.
It’s unbelievable the legislation that has been introduced this year in Maine’s legislature: mandated vaccines, RU486 in vending machines, physician-assisted suicide (again), an Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) that is a back door to taxpayer-funded abortion, mandating insurance companies to provide abortion coverage in their health insurance plans, banning conversion therapy for sex-confused youth, and on and on it goes. We need you to stand with us against this prevailing evil. When you do, lawmakers take notice. Together, in prayer and action, we can have an impact on our culture in Maine.
Please Pray: Dear Father, please move on the hearts of Your people to come to Augusta on Wednesday. Help them understand that our rights are under assault and how important it is for them to show up, to stand up and to speak up. To You be all the glory, honor, and praise. In Jesus’ Name. Amen

You Are Needed Again
Last Wednesday’s press conference in opposition to L.D. 820, the taxpayer-funded abortion bill and mandate to insurance companies to cover abortion, was a huge success because you showed up! You showed up on location, and you showed up by contacting your legislators. Lawmakers do take notice when you are willing to take time off from work to come to Augusta to take a stand on a bill.
The Health Coverage, Insurance and Financial Service Committee held a hearing-only on L.D. 820. CWA of Maine testified in opposition to the bill at the hearing. You can read our testimonies here and here. There is now a work session on the bill scheduled for Tuesday, April 2. The committee will vote whether or not to send the bill to the House and Senate for a vote.
There is still more work to do!
Paul told the church of Corinth in 1 Corinthians 15:58, “So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” Let’s commit today to stand firm and not be moved in protecting life from conception until natural death and defending the Biblical concept of the genders, male and female.
L.D. 1313 and L.D. 1025 will be heard in committee next week. We need to commit these two very dangerous bills to prayer and to action. L.D. 1313 would make legal physician-assisted suicide. L.D. 1025 would prohibit conversion therapy for minors who suffer from same-sex attractions.
Please Pray with Me, Dear Father, thank You for sending so many of Your people to Augusta Wednesday to stand against abortion. We need them, and many more, again Tuesday as You know. May they realize we are losing our freedom and only as they show up, stand up, and speak up for You will we prevail. To You be all the glory, honor and praise. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Thank you for standing with us Wednesday. Please do so once more April 10. It truly makes a difference. As we learn the outcome of L.D. 820, may it be an encouragement to you. May you come to understand how important it is to stand publicly for righteousness in our state.
