It is becoming increasingly difficult to address all of the critically important moral and political issues that appear on the horizon every morning when we wake up and “put two feet on the floor”, but of all of the issues confronting us, I believe it is the value that we, as a nation, put on each and every human life from conception until natural death that will ultimately determine the future we will be handing to our children and grandchildren. Lila Rose is a true heroine to me……………….I wish that I had her courage and strength to fight as she does for mothers and their unborn children. If Planned Parenthood (or any abortion facility) can recommend an ultrasound to determine the sex of the unborn, doesn’t that conclude that they are acknowledging that the unborn is not just a clump of cells, that the unborn is a child with an identity (girl/boy)…………..is it then okay to terminate (murder) that girl/boy simply because the parent wants a different gender???
Is it okay to terminate for any reason at 24 weeks gestation (the cutoff for Planned Parenthood abortions), when the earliest baby to survive a premature birth was born at just 21 weeks, 6 days?? Is it okay at 12 weeks?? 8 weeks?? 4 weeks?? 4 days?? 4 minutes?? What is the difference?? Pray for Lila Rose, pray for distraught mothers, pray for the unborn, pray for us all.

The House on Thursday rejected a Republican bill that would impose fines and prison terms on doctors who perform abortions for the sole purpose of controlling the gender of the child, a practice known as sex-selective abortion.
The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), H.R. 3541, was defeated in a 246-168 vote. While that’s a clear majority of the House, Republicans called up the bill under a suspension of House rules, which limits debate and requires a two-thirds majority vote to pass. In this case, it would have required more support from Democrats.
