(AgapePress) - Tuesday's stunning victories for Republicans in the House and Senate are good news for pro-family issues.
The new Senate Majority Leader, Trent Lott of Mississippi, says with Republicans now in control of the White House and both houses of Congress, the logjam of bills is going to be broken. Lott says not only will important legislation dealing with homeland security and the economy be moved along quickly, but also a key issue of importance to Christians: a ban on partial-birth abortion.
"We will move the partial-birth abortion bill through [the Senate]," Lott says. "The House did it this year -- [but] once again, [outgoing Majority Leader] Tom Daschle would not call it up [in the Senate].
"I will call it up, we will pass it, and the president will sign it. I'm making that commitment -- you can write it down."
This is good news, but let's not forget that changing laws doesn't change people's hearts. There will still be a battle to be fought, even if a partial birth abortion bill is passed. Keep praying and preaching the sanctity of life!
