Why Repealing the Hyde Amendment Will Kill Black Lives

Dean Nelson / July 14, 2021

The Hyde Amendment is under attack. Before President Joe Biden even took office in January 2021, leading Democrats announced their plans to upset decades of bipartisan consensus and fight to repeal the Hyde Amendment.

As Biden pursues his policy agenda this year, activists and Democratic legislators have only sharpened their calls to action, decrying the Hyde Amendment as anti-choice and racist.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., told reporters in March:

Let’s call this amendment what it is: It’s anti-choice and it’s blatantly racist. We know it disproportionately impacts low-income people and women of color. It should never have been signed into law and it’s way past time that it was repealed. The Hyde Amendment has been used by anti-choice politicians to keep abortion care out of the reach for people already marginalized by our health care system.

Fight For Life

The soulless abortion industry is actually fighting for the “right” to abort babies with Down syndrome.The ACLJ just took action at the U.S. Supreme Court to stop them.

Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry have a long history of wanting to kill any unborn baby they view as inferior. That includes race, sex, and the potential for birth defects, even Down syndrome.The state of Arkansas passed a pro-life ban on abortions because the baby may be born with Down syndrome. Abortionists called the ban unconstitutional and filed a lawsuit to have it overturned.The abortion industry doesn’t care about the Constitution, which does NOT protect abortion. It’s just worried about the bottom line. It’s an unfathomable low, even for them.EVERY SINGLE CHILD deserves a chance at life. Period.The ACLJ just filed a critical amicus brief at the Supreme Court supporting this ban on invidious discriminatory abortions. The Supreme Court just took up another case directly challenging Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand, and we’re already preparing our next brief in that case.We are aggressively defending life at the Supreme Court. Together, we are needed now more than ever to protect unborn babies. We can win at the Supreme Court and save countless unborn babies, but we need YOU.Sign Our Petition: Save Babies at the Supreme Court.Jay Sekulow

New State Abortion Laws Put Supreme Court Under the MicroscopePro-life reforms in Arkansas, Montana, Arizona raise direct challenge to Roe precedent

A bevy of state laws restricting abortion are ratcheting up the pressure on the Supreme Court to reconsider the lawfulness of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

Arkansas passed a sweeping ban on any abortion performed in the state with an exception for those performed to save the health of the mother. The law marks the latest in a line of states considering or passing legislation intended to chip away at legal access to abortion. Pro-life advocates say that a conservative majority on the Supreme Court represents an opportunity for a post-Roelandscape in which abortion laws are returned to state governments, rather than established by the the federal judiciary. Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson (R.) said that his state’s legislation is directly intended to prompt the court to reevaluate Roe. “I signed it because it is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade,” Hutchinson said. “I think there’s a very narrow chance that the Supreme Court will accept that case, but we’ll see.”

Senate RINOs are calling it quits!Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Rob Portman (R-OH), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Dick Shelby (R-AL), and Roy Blunt (R-MO) have all announced their retirements – dealing a major blow to the Republican establishment’s inner circle.The mainstream media believes these departures are a loss for the Republican Party, but they actually create a unique opportunity to replace weak Republicans next year with strong conservatives who will truly fight for our principles and values.In addition to these open seats, there are also vulnerable Democrats on the ballot in Arizona, Georgia, and New Hampshire.But electing rock-solid conservatives in these states won’t be easy. Senator McConnell and his allies are already working to recruit candidates who will maintain business as usual.

It is imperative they we elect true blooded conservatives to the Senate in the midterm elections. That is the only hope for this nation. I am as disgusted as anyone about what the Republican Party did to Donald Trump. But we’ve got to forget about that and elect rock ribbed God fearing moral conservatives to the Senate and we must do it this next election cycle. if conservatives do not take back the Senate in 2022, America is finished. You can take that to the bank.

South Carolina to Become Latest State to Pass Heartbeat Bill

South Carolina is on the verge of passing a bill banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, making it the latest state to move forward with pro-life legislation.

The state legislature’s House Judiciary Committee approved the “heartbeat” bill by a nearly 2-1 margin Tuesday, teeing up the legislation for a vote on the House floor. The statesenate passed the bill by a 30-13 margin with one Republican voting against the bill and one Democrat voting for it. The legislation would effectively ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, around the point at which a fetal heartbeat is detected, with an exception for cases of rape, incest, and the health of the mother. Pro-abortion advocates criticized the legislation for its extreme nature and alleged it would force women to give birth

Desperate Times

We are living in desperate times. America is facing the very real prospect of a move towards socialism and a move toward far more governmental control in the year 2021. I bellowed and screamed at the top of my lungs how important this election was this year, and many people were asleep, especially many in the church. I see a very chaotic year regardless of who is finally determined to have won the election. Our desperationin America is enhanced by the fact that we are a nation that is split almost 50-50 down the middle about which direction we are to go. People I know have voted for Biden and will not hear of the fact that he is going to lead us towards socialism. In fact their only reason for voting for Biden was a vote against Donald Trump. They think Donald Trump is the antichrist and that he will destroy America. Regardless of who is finally determined to have won the election, we are in for perilous and destructive times. If Trump wins the riots ensue. If Biden wins we face lockdowns and mandated mask and vaccines.

Our division in America is enhanced by the fact that we are a nation that is split almost 50-50 down the middle about which direction we are to go. My fear is with the deep state entrenched in D.C., even if Trump wins we will be headed for destruction. We do not have but a handful In Congress who truly have the best for America in their heart and mind. Most are nothing more than hirelings waiting on the next bribe.
