Just your presence at these modern day killing centers is enough for hearts to be touched and lives to be saved as you bring the love of Christ...and light up the darkness!
MEANWHILE IN ALABAMA...
Alabama Governor virtually bans ALL abortions in the state by signing pro-life legislation. Abortionists now face up to 99 years in jail for committing abortions!
Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act. To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God.
Governor Ivey has created a constitutional crisis now that she has signed a law that bans abortion in her state and sends abortionists to jail for 99 years for killing pre-born children. She believes that this bold action is necessary to create the needed tension necessary to force the Supreme Court to act and finally examine the overwhelming scientific evidence and the abundant case law already on the books that affirms the humanity of pre-born life in the womb at conception/fertilization.
No matter one’s personal view on abortion, we can all recognize that, at least for the short term, this bill may similarly be unenforceable. As citizens of this great country, we must always respect the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court even when we disagree with their decisions. Many Americans, myself included, disagreed when Roe v. Wade was handed down in 1973. The sponsors of this bill believe that it is time, once again, for the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit this important matter, and they believe this act may bring about the best opportunity for this to occur.
In addition to the legal precedent that Alabama has set by banning abortions in their state, now abortionists will face up to 99 years in jail for performing abortions because Alabama law now recognizes that their practice intentionally kills children.
According to the Washington Post,
The measure, which is easily the most restrictive abortion law in the country, would make performing an abortion a criminal act — including in cases of rape or incest. Doctors caught attempting to perform an abortion could face up to 10 years in prison and those who actually complete the procedure could receive a sentence as long as 99 years. The law does not penalize the woman receiving the abortion.
Tara Shaver spokeswoman of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement,
Abortion Free New Mexico applauds Alabama for their bold stand against the premeditated killing of innocent children in the womb. Every state, all across our great country, should follow Governor Kay Ivey's lead and act to ensure that every child in their jurisdiction is valued and protected. This bold step forward now compounds the constitutional crisis brewing in our country because while abortionists face jail time in Alabama for intentionally killing pre-born babies, in Washington DC, peaceful pro-lifers also face jail time for intentionally trying to intervene to stop the killing of pre-born children at abortion facilities. These two conflicting realties can't coexist in a just society.
Apart from One America News, there has been virtually no mainstream media coverage (including conservative media) of the Red Rose Rescue efforts.
Thank you for standing with us for life and truth!
If abortion facilities are going to drag every American citizen into the killing rooms by the forced funding of these barbaric procedures with our tax dollars, then these facilities are no longer going to be considered off limits. The Red Rose Recuse efforts are bringing our advocacy from the sidewalks surrounding these killing centers to the hallways inside of them to peacefully stop the atrocities being committed against innocent pre-born children.
