Advancing The Sanctity Of Human Life On Capitol Hill

This Representative Made a Bold Statement on Life

Jun 6, 2019

Recently, we've seen states across the nation pass radical legislation concerning abortion. Just last week, Illinois passed the "Reproductive Health Act" which repeals the state's ban on partial-birth abortion, allowing abortions through nine months, and requires insurance companies to provide coverage.

Fortunately though, we've also seen many states, such as Alabama and Georgia, push back against this sweeping culture of death, by passing pro-life legislation.

On Tuesday, the Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing entitled Threats to Reproductive Rights in America which focused on the rise of these pro-life state laws. Peggy Nienaber, the Vice-President and missionary of National Pro-Life Center, was in attendance.

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) gave a particularly powerful opening statement to the hearing.

"We believe as the founders articulated, that every single human life is sacred because that value is given to us, not by the state, but by our Creator in whose image all of us are made."

He concluded his opening statements by extending love and compassion for women living with the pain of a past choice.

"...I just want to say personally that you too are valued and loved and that Creator who gave us our inalienable rights is so gracious, that He offers hope, forgiveness, and redemption to every single one of us."

It is very encouraging to hear elected officials affirm the sanctity of human life on Capitol Hill. Our nation is in a battle for life and death. It is more important than ever to educate and encourage our nation's leaders to stand for life as they consider policies that have the potential to result in lives being saved or ended.

The National Pro-Life Center continues to work diligently on Capitol Hill as an advocate for life. We value your prayers and support for this mission. Pray for doors to be opened and hearts to be softened to the truth that Rep. Johnson so powerfully expressed; every single human life is sacred.

And would you also prayerfully consider a gift to the National-Pro-Life Center? Our ability to minister to our nation's leaders is made possible through the generosity of friends like you.

Thank you for standing with us for LIFE!

Your team at the National Pro-Life Center,

Peggy Nienaber, Vice-President
