4 Down, 46 More to Go

I received this email statement from Live Action and wanted to share the news!!

Statement of Live Action President Lila Rose On Planned Parenthood Defunding in NC

Contact: Anna Bettisworth, media@liveaction.org323.454.3304

RALEIGH, June 16--Lila Rose, president of the pro-life youth organization Live Action, issued the following statement this morning on North Carolina’s defunding of Planned Parenthood:

"North Carolina is now the fourth state this year to step up to the plate and ensure that no taxpayer dollars go towards funding the biggest abortion business in America, Planned Parenthood. This corrupt organization is responsible for killing over 332,000 defenseless unborn children each year. Planned Parenthood manipulates women to choose abortion and routinely aids and abets the sexual exploitation and trafficking of young girls. Governors of other states should take note of how Gov. Perdue's legislature has decisively rejected her veto and realize that the American people do not want to subsidize abortionists.”

Indiana, Kansas, and New Jersey have recently passed laws to prevent taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is challenging the Indiana law in federal court, although a federal judge has already denied the abortion business’s request for a temporary injunction.

Over the past four years, Live Action has released undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood clinics across the country covering up the sexual abuse of children and violating mandatory reporting laws for statutory rape. In February, Live Action released new undercover footage showing 7 Planned Parenthood clinics in 4 states willing to aid and abet the commercial sex trafficking of underage girls. The videos prompted the House of Representatives to vote twice to defund Planned Parenthood of all federal taxpayer subsidies.

“North Carolina joins Indiana, Kansas, and New Jersey in standing up for the rule of law, human rights, and responsible government,” says Rose. “While we wait for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood at the federal level, responsible state governments should do their part to protect women and unborn children and end local public subsidies of this lawless abortion chain."

Four states down ~ 46 more to go!  May God richly Bless the efforts of Live Action in their pursuit to protect the unborn!!

  5. I'm updating the "Visit My Friends" Button page on my blog this morning.

    I tried to grab your nifty button, but there's no code to grab. Do you have the HTML code somewhere else and I' just haven't missed it? Let me know and I'll get you added to my page. :-D

    Also don't forget "Pay it Forward" is coming up. I hope you can submit this week.

    Many blessings...

  6. All of our prayers are powerful Patty! But it does feel good that since I've taken a more active role in praying for the unborn, that real change is happening!

    Tracy and Anna-Marie- I'm in agreement that more states need to step up and make the moral changes necessary to protect the innocent. I wish my state was one of them but sadly, not yet. In fact, I've not heard back from my State Senator about this issue. Hmmmm... maybe another letter is needed.

    Holly - No code, huh? Well, I'm not sure what to do about that. My bloggy friend Lynda made it for me and then my brother in law helped me add it to mine. I'll ask for help and will let you know. Thank you so much for wanting to add my blog button to your blog!!

  7. Thanks for the reminder Holly :)!!!
