I am late getting this posted, as I’m traveling again and my air-card was not working yesterday. I can tell you, however, that this post remains on the topic of last week and (what should be) the hottest topic on the hearts and minds of every American: Government-Run Health Care (HR-3200).

The New York Times reports that on July 30th, “by a vote of 35 to 24, Democrats defeated a Republican effort to eliminate a section of the bill that would create the public health insurance option.”

The Times also reports that “on Thursday night, the Energy and Commerce Committee voted to allow health plans to cover or not cover abortion, as they see fit, but stipulated that insurers must use money from private sources to pay for any abortions.”

Further, an amendment was proposed by Representative Lois Capps, Democrat from California, which was approved 30 to 28 by the Democrats. This amendment says “abortion could not be included in the “essential benefits package” to be defined by the government. Further, it said insurers would not be required or forbidden to cover abortion. But, it says, in every part of the country, the government must ensure that there is at least one plan that covers abortion and at least one that does not. Under the bill, health plans would receive federal subsidies to help pay premiums for low-income people. But under the amendment, subsidies could not be used to pay for abortions.

There is a group of six Republican Senators that are working to draft compromise legislation, but don’t expect it to be ready for “prime time” before they go on their August break. To read the entire article, go here.

This is NOT the time to give up in discouragement! If you haven’t acted:


2. E-mail and write letters to your Representative and two Senators

3. Call the offices of your Representative and two Senators

4. Spread the word to everyone you know

5. Write a Letter to the Editor of your local newspaper

6. Write a post of your own and list these links – SPREAD THE WORD!


I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him. Deuteronomy 30:19 MSG

Father God, We come to You today – many believers, one voice – to stand for life. Lord, we shake our collective heads at the travesty that is taking place around us. Give us COURAGE to make our opinions known in a way that would not, could not be ignored, but that leaves others seeing You. Invade the hearts and minds of those on the House and Senate committees that are working on “compromises” and show them that You are not a God of compromise; You are a God of Truth…a God of LIFE. Give those that are valiantly holding on to the cause for the unborn extra strength and courage to keep fighting and not give up. Most of all, Father, change the heart of Barack Obama. Help him to study and learn the desires of the God he claims to know, changing not only his stance on abortion, but his status for all eternity. Believing You are still a God of miracles…Believing You will change one heart for many, we pray in the MIGHTY, LIFE-GIVING NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, Amen.
