House Republicans Don't Consider "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act"

On the 42nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Republicans in the House of Representatives failed to consider HR 36, the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” that would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks because some felt the law would alienate women voters.

The decision came the same day thousands of people, many of them women, marched in Washington, DC in the March for Life, the largest pro-life event in the world.

Additionally, millions of women, many who oppose abortion, voted for Republicans in the 2014 elections with the hopes that a more life-affirming Congress would pass life-affirming laws.

Unfortunately, some Republicans are alienating women voters by not considering this bill as, ironically, thousands of baby girls, future women, continue to be eliminated through abortion.

If they do not bring HR 36 back up for a vote, which Chris Smith (R-N.J.) has promised that they will, they have failed these women and the many baby girls who will lose their lives because they chose not to take a stand.

 “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” -Edmund Burke

Thankfully, despite the failed consideration of HR 36, the House did pass a bill that would completely prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions.

The House voted 242-179 for the bill with 239 Republicans and three Democrats voting to ban taxpayer funding of abortions under HR 7 while 178 Democrats and one Republican voted against it. 

We are thrilled that this is a step in the right direction of saving lives and for the religious freedom of pro-life citizens across this country.

We will continue to pray that God moves in the hearts of those failed to consider HR 36 and pray for the Senate as they will now, hopefully, consider HR 7. 

Ferguson, Planned Parenthood & #BlackLivesMatter

Ferguson and the surrounding St. Louis areas have been an incredible place of unrest following the Grand Jury’s decision to not indict officer Darren Wilson.

During the protests many have seen the slogan “Black Lives Matter” displayed on posters, in hash tags and even t-shirts.

 Do black lives matter? Obviously!

 Yet, ironically, Planned Parenthood fails to see the hypocrisy of tweeting "#BlackLivesMatter" when they have, through abortion, contributed to:

 

Yes, black lives matter … but not just when it's convenient for a tweet. They matter now, always and at every stage of life. Through education, ultrasounds and the love of Jesus, our hope at Mosaic PHC is to change and save all lives, including black lives, to truly make a difference in our communities.
