Praise God we live in a free country! If our lawmakers don’t represent us, we the people have opportunities and procedures to pass or stop legislation as needed.
Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Maine is working alongside our pro-life Maine allies to overturn two very bad bills: L.D. 820, the mandate for taxpayers to pay for abortions and health insurance providers to include abortion in their healthcare plans, and L.D. 1313, the bill that allows for physician-assisted suicide.
Overturning L.D. 820 and L.D. 1313 is an enormous task, and that is why I am reaching out to you today. We need 80,000 signatures of registered voters in Maine on a petition for each bill. The petitions must be submitted to the Secretary of State’s office within three months from the adjournment date of the Maine legislature. The legislature adjourned June 20, 2019, so the clock is ticking.
We need your help to help us get the job done.
Right now, all I am asking for is volunteers to gather signatures for both bills. Once the approved petitions are released by the Secretary of State’s office, we will begin collecting signatures.
Please respond to this email letting me know if you would be willing to do either or both of the following:
- I am willing to circulate petitions gathering signatures for L.D. 820.
- I am willing to circulate petitions gathering signatures for L.D. 1313.
Every generation is called upon to protect our freedoms. This is our time as pro-life Mainers to take a stand for the sanctity of life – from conception until natural death. For this task, we only need a pen and paper. Can I count on you today?
The Lord says in Micah 6:8, “He has told you, men, what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: Only to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God.” (HCSB)
Please Pray: Dear Father, please guide and direct us as we work with our pro-life allies to get this important peoples’ veto done in the allotted timeframe. Help us organize and recruit volunteers and staff. Stir the hearts of Your people to stand up for life. We do all this for Your honor and glory alone. May Your righteousness reign in our great state of Maine as we, Your people, educate Your truths in this project. We ask it in Jesus’ Name. Amen
