ACTION REQUIRED TODAY: SNEAKY LANGUAGE THREATENS LIFE PROTECTION IN SENATE

Lord, we pray for strength of character for the Senate Republicans who have the power to protect life in this bill.

The Trump administration has made good on its promise to implement pro-life policies throughout the federal government, including in America’s foreign policy and in humanitarian aid.

But those advances could be dealt a crippling blow as a result of a compromise by Senate Republicans, who are cooperating with an underhanded attempt to stymie the administration’s efforts through controversial additions to must-pass appropriations bills.

TAKE ACTION–THE VOTE IS TODAY!

CLICK HERE TO BEGIN.

The Trump administration’s Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy reinstated and expanded the Reagan administration’s “Mexico City policy,” which barred taxpayer funds from organizations that perform or promote abortions overseas.

In addition, the administration has expanded the availability of funding to pro-life and faith-based aid organizations that the Obama administration excluded from participation in programs at the U.S. Agency for International Development because of their views on abortion, marriage, and gender identity.

Over the summer, the White House and congressional leadership from both parties reached an agreement regarding the budget and appropriations process, including an agreement that neither side would include so-called poison pill policy riders that did not have bipartisan support.

Abortion-related amendments historically have been understood to clearly violate such agreements, and the inclusion of controversial language on sexual orientation and gender identity should also fall into this category.

But prior to the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Sept. 26 vote on the funding bill for the State Department and foreign operations, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., threatened to offer an amendment reversing the Trump administration’s Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy.

In order to avoid a vote on this amendment, which could have passed the committee, Republicans on the panel agreed to add new language proposed by Shaheen to the bill.

That language, released just minutes before the scheduled committee markup, represents an attempt to work around the administration’s prohibition on international abortion funding by providing $665 million for “family planning and reproductive health care”—which would go to groups that promote abortion.

The new amendment, ultimately adopted as part of the final bill, also enshrines problematic language on sexual orientation and gender identity and hinders the administration’s efforts to expand USAID funding to pro-life and faith-based groups.

One provision requires the agency to inform Congress if any group that receives funding has been found to violate an Obama-era regulation interpreting sex discrimination as including sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Shaheen amendment also requires creation of a “shame list” by requiring reporting to Congress that would expose pro-life and faith-based recipients of USAID funding to complaints that they refuse to comply with Obama administration regulations requiring them to make referrals for abortion and endorse radical sexual orientation and gender identity ideology.

The Shaheen amendment is only one aspect of this troubling compromise by Senate appropriators, however.

The committee report attached to the bill, which contains instructions on how funds are to be used, recommends an increase in funding for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex portfolio in USAID’s Human Rights Division.

  1. Father: rebuke us not in thy hot displeasure not chasten us in thy wrath.
    Do not forsaken us we pray in Jesus Christ thy one and only Son, of the One and Only God. The Messiah, and our Lord and Savior.

  2. Dear Heavenly Father,

    We ask You to intercede on behalf of our country. We desperately need You now! Please do not let Senator Shaheen’s suggested language be approved. Please open the eyes of those in Washington, and the hearts. Please do not let them call good evil, and evil good. Thank You, Father.

    Amen

  3. Our Father which is in heaven. Who sees and knows all. We ask for Your intervention in the Senate members decision process where they are deciding between life and death. Bringing your blessing or judgement against the people of our nation through this decision which releases tax payers dollars. May we see the hearts turned toward life. May those in opposition have their eyes opened to see the choice they make comes from the spirit of darkness not from the Creator of life. Help Senator Sheaheen to learn the Truth and turn from her current walk promoting the agenda of darkness. Bless her today with revelation knowledge of who You are Father and Your goodness. That she may turn away from this walk in darkness and find life for her soul.
    Help us precious Lord we are leaning on the everlasting arms of our Mighty God. In Jesus Name. Amen

  4. Father God, we ask You to intervene in this matter. Cause Your people in the Senate to stand for righteousness.
    And LORD, please deal with Senator Shaheen who broke the bipartisan agreement to not add poison pill policy riders to appropriations bills.
    Also, we ask for Your correction to be administered to the Republicans who allowed this new language to be added.
    You, O God, know what needs to be done and You have the power to accomplish Your purposes. We are trusting You to cleanse our government’s legislation of everything that is contrary to Your will.
    In Jesus name. Amen.

  5. Lord let not the wicked rule over us. Confound all the schemes of those who seek to separate us from you and from objective reality. Have mercy on us and deliver in for your name’s sake. AMEN
