As Mrs. McIntyre shared with us on January 31st of this year, Rep. Jason Overstreet introduced a fantastic pro-life bill, HB 1259. This bill sought “To implement equal protection for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.” As far as legislative efforts to abolish abortion are concerned, this bill truly was the gold standard.
Unfortunately, Life of the Party editors have been informed that this bill is “dead” for this legislative session. The efforts of the 11 legislators who sponsored this bill, Representatives Overstreet, Klippert, Taylor, Shea, Condotta, Buys, Short, Kristiansen, Hargrove, and Scott, should be recognized, and we should all extend our thanks to them for their courage.
We have been asked to continue in prayer about this issue, as without God’s intervention, we have no chance of these bills being heard in the future.Follow @RClaytonStrang
