We blogged recently about SB9 Ultrasound Informed Consent – a bill which has the intention to educate women on their babies’ development prior to undergoing an abortion. At our local crisis pregnancy clinic, ultrasounds have been extremely effective in helping women understand the true personhood of their unborn children and discredit the lie that there are just carrying a “blob of tissue.” Those lies hold no weight when a young mother is staring at her baby’s profile, hearing its heart beat, and learning of all the miraculous growth her child has already achieved. A picture is worth 1,000 words and in a crisis pregnancy, ultrasounds can mean the difference between life and death. Obviously, we want this bill to pass and now we have a strategy to get that done!
We recently learned that our best way to support SB9 is to convince our Speaker of the House, Democrat Greg Stumbo, to pull his weight in the vote. With his support, SB9 has a great chance of passing the House vote despite the anticipated opposition. Please reach out to Greg Stumbo directly and ask him to support SB9. His email address, phone number and mailing address are available here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/legislator/h095.htm.
Also continue to contact your own KY House Representative. This time, ask them to contact Greg Stumbo and gain his support on this bill. You can look up your Representative here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/legislators.htm.
Let’s be encouraged to pray for our leaders and ask God to turn their hearts toward His will and the unborn in our state!
