I had a message on Face book this morning about a bill that has already been introduced in Congress, and quite honestly is horrendous. I have been watching our new President's agenda unfold over the past week and a half, and so far, I am scared. I am scared for my family, my country and what is going to happen over the next 4 years. This bill is just the tip of the iceberg, and would include:
* Make Title X (family planning) a permanent program and fund it at $700 million or more.
* Mandate that health insurance programs that cover prescriptions must cover abortifacient contraceptives.
* Create a government program to push abortifacient "Emergency Contraception."
* Take all federal money away from any hospital that refuses to administer the abortifacient Emergency Contraception to victims of rape.
* Create additional massive government funding for Planned Parenthood style sex education programs (abstinence-only programs are specifically excluded from funding).Permanently include family planning services as part of the Medicaid program.
Here is the link to the bill:
Please pray that this bill won't pass. Please pray for the President's conversion in this year of St. Paul.
