Vice President Mike Pence decried such laws saying, "The Democratic Party platform [now] supports forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions and legalizing abortions for basically any reason through all nine months of pregnancy… This shameless embrace of a culture of death is startling to every American who cherishes life."
See my important update below – Mat.
The so-called "Reproductive Health Act" recently signed into law by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo authorizes the murder of unborn babies up to the point of birth for any reason and revokes mandatory medical care for babies who are born alive after a failed abortion.
Preborn life has been devalued in many societies throughout history – including, lamentably, our own. The promotion of abortion as a personal "right" is one of our nation's greatest failings.
+ + Liberty Counsel is working to move our nation back to the pro-life side of the issue.
The United States is one of only seven nations that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, the point at which the scientific community widely agrees that the preborn child can feel pain. America is on the wrong side of this issue!
Liberty Counsel affirms that life begins at conception. We believe that preborn children are in fact children, not merely fetuses. Life is NOT expendable. It is an inherent, God-given right, and Liberty Counsel will continue to fight for its protection!
Your support and strategic investment in our efforts bolsters our resolve to advance pro-life initiatives. You equip us to fight for the restoration of those values that declare every life has meaning and a purpose.
Please consider a special gift today to help Liberty Counsel in our ongoing efforts to defend life and the rights of the preborn. Every gift, no matter the size, will help us declare that life has value!
+ + Gosnell all over again...
The infanticide that New York, Virginia and other states are considering is akin to the atrocities committed by Kermit Gosnell, the now-imprisoned abortionist.
In May 2013, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder, conspiracy to kill, and involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was convicted of the murders of three infants and involuntary manslaughter after a botched abortion attempt killed a woman from an inhumanely administered drug overdose.
The most innocent among us are being savagely murdered in the womb. It's time to stop committing human genocide in this nation and make the womb a safe place again.
Liberty Counsel's legal teams are engaged in several key battles defending the rights of pro-life citizens. Advancing the sanctity of human life is one of our core missions.
Thank you, as always, for your support!
May God richly bless you,
P.S. Friends like you equip us to fight for the restoration of values that declare that every life has meaning and a purpose in God's view. Your support is what makes our victories possible!
