Capitol Hill Update
This week, U.S. Senators Roger Wicker (R-MS) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) introduced legislation to enact a permanent, government-wide prohibition of taxpayer funding for abortion, the “No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act.” Additionally, the legislation would require all health care plans offered on the Obamacare exchanges to disclose whether or not they have the abortion surcharge and if they provide coverage of abortion.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the “No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act” on the day of the March for Life last month. To learn more about abortion coverage in Obamacare, click HERE.
We recently saw a preview of a documentary film called “The Drop Box Film,” about a Pastor in South Korea who rescues babies abandoned after birth, and we highly recommend you see it! In a world that emphasizes the need to be perfect, the Drop Box Film gets to the heart of love, life, and the unique giftedness of every human being, and the story is a perfect embodiment of our 2015 March for Life theme, “Every Life is a Gift.” The Drop Box Film will be in movie theaters nationwide for a limited three-night engagement, March 3, 4, and 5. You can get your tickets now:TheDropBoxFilm.com.
On a more somber note for February, the pro-life movement lost two pro-life heroes, Dr. Jack Willke, and Brother Paul O’Donnell. We mourn their passing, but celebrate their contributions to the pro-life movement. They are an inspiration to each of us to continue their work in defending the unborn and building a culture of life.
