The pro-life movement gained even more momentum in Washington, D.C., today when the House passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which would strengthen and make permanent a ban on using federal dollars for abortion.
The 238-183 vote came just one day after President Donald Trump ordered an end to foreign aid for nongovernmental organizations that perform or promote abortion.
Since 1977, the Hyde Amendment restricted federal agencies from directly paying for abortions, primarily through Medicaid. The amendment had an exception for cases of rape and incest or when the motherâ€™s life was in danger. But Congress had to renew the measure each year as part of the budget process; the law passed today could remain in effect unless repealed by future legislation.
â€œFollowing an election in which voters chose a pro-life president and a pro-life Congress, our nation is moving toward a new era...
allie, you speak of what abolitionist groups are saying and I agree. its a states rights issue as roe v wade legislated which is not their area of jurisdiction. it simply requires states to reassert their laws that they already have. this does not need to come from trump, the fact that he does not aim to get in the way and pence and kellyanne being prolife means green light.
as you say, folks need to repent of letting Babylon lure them in. and I add get your diets right, stop eating estrogenic foods, drinking fluoride that messes up hormones. the human body is being hormonally altered... many will argue it is a spiritual issue, it is, claim your body back for the Lord, the temple of the Holy Spirit, not to be given over to shots corrupted with fetal cell lines. (does this instigate immune system to attack its own human dna as a foreign protein, ie autoimmune disease?)
come out of their eugenics grid, leave behind the abortifacient bc pill and be a voice for the innocent.

Prolly all he will do. People don't want abortion stopped. Just heavily regulated. When I say people I mean most up prolifers. That is all they are really lobbying for. Their financiers keep donating and thinking that regulating will lead to its in. It hasn't and won't. There would have to be a real moving of The Spirit where a ton of people got saved before it would go away. Folks would repent of their divorces, smorgasbord of sexual immorality, feminism, and girly man-ness.

Senate has to pass it. House passes stuff they know the Senatw won't as a posturing jesture. We should pray for abortion to end and I know most of you are and want to see it done away with. Remember Wilberforce and be encouraged. He was tireless about ending slavery, not deterring it. He kept speaking up and out. Keep praying. Even if we don't live to see it end keep praying.
This is great news! I'm so glad, so far that Trump is in office and not that Jezebel Hillary. Haven't seen such news in the US like Christopher said. I'm also glad that the LGBT community isn't being catered to along with the liberals.
Jim, you claim "Ladybug, I didn't know that salary determined if what a person says or not is true?" You would have to direct that at yourself since you are the one who questioned Jeffress sincerity and attacked his income and church size. So, to be fair, you need to examine your go to men, JM is near the one mil a year mark. Don't forget, JM has taught falsely in the past concerning the blood of Christ and the mark of the beast. You might want to find another 'go to' guy. Or, you could just read the bible for yourself.....BTW, don't forget to pray for your new President.

The Lord is good. i have learned to study scriptures, and apply them in prayer like an expert swordsman. Since God's word never returns to Him void, I find that such prayers are super effective and often see manifestations of such in the news and daily life.
Jim, most Black women DO NOT pay for their own abortions; and they do abortions at a much higher rate than any group. In some cities upwards to 60% of Black babies are killed by federal and state funding of abortions. The result of which is we are about to lose a 4th generation of Black potential sin Roe v Wade.
In addition you heard the NY Governor Cuomo 4 days ago announce unfettered access to abortions and contraceptions (chemical induced abortions) in his state; he's posturing for a presidential run in 2020. I hope somehow Congress can restrict Federal funds to states who does what he is doing.
Bottom line: I remember how low and anxious I was feeling back in early Nov when polls and pundits were predicting a Clinton double-digit landslide victory. All I could think of was the millions of more babies put at risk. But now... THANK YOU LORD!!!
I must say that I was really taken back after reading this headline. After the past 8yrs, it's real easy to think there's no turning back, and nothing good could possibly happen following such bleak goings on in this country. I was one who said there's no turning back from some things because the people wouldn't allow it, etc. I was wrong, and this right here has really perked me up and got me excited to see what's next...
