(Worthy News) - Federal taxpayer funding generally isn’t allowed to be spent on abortions, but Republicans say they have spotted a loophole in which tax-free municipal bonds have been used to put federal cash on the line in order to help build abortion clinics — including Planned Parenthood’s headquarters in New York.

Rep. Robert Pittenger, North Carolina Republican, will introduce legislation this week aimed at stopping what he called “abortion bonds.” He said it’s time to make the law agree with the principle that taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook in any way for the procedure.

“We’re utilizing the federal government to facilitate the development of these abortion clinics through the involvement of the American taxpayer, and they don’t want that,” Mr. Pittenger said. [ Source (Read More...) ]

Psalms 139:13-14  For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb.   I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well.

Proverbs 24:11-12  Rescue those who are being led away to death! Indeed, hold back those who are staggering to the slaughter!  If you say, “Behold, we didn’t know this;” doesn’t he who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, doesn’t he know it? Shall he not render to every man according to his work?

Isaiah 5:20  Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

  1. My God!

    Perhaps instead of (annual) Pro-Life marches, or the same on Washington DC,
    or prayer rallies, or meetings of rivers of babbling tongues where no one can hear what the "prayer leader" is asking of God (so that we might agree or not inside of ourselves);

    Perhaps a great many of us, esp including as many widows (desolate women) and fatherless children, should stand in a group (excepting them who can not stand, may sit or kneel as they can) and with one voice, or in many voices, in whatever languages those individuals have,

    Call Upon the Name(s) of our God,

    that is, our Abba, He Who sits on The Throne, The Ancient of Days, Mighty King of kings, our Holy One of Israel, God of Avraham, Issac, and Jacob, God and Father of Jesus, the Christ...

    Then, let us finish it by asking Him to (for all intents and purposes) end abortion in the United States of America, in that land, "For His Name's sake."

    Note: the widows and orphans do not even need to be Believers, or Jewish. Unless I'm missing that modifier in what God has promised (in both the Jewish and Christian/Messianic Bibles) He would hear and act on for the sake of the oppressed.

    If we do that as if speaking for them who can not cry out to Him, as one, on their behalf, surely God will hear from heaven and do right(eousness) for them.

    Surely, He will.
