Trojan Horse Abortion Maneuver

Jul 20, 2023

Right now, Congress is considering a trojan horse bill that will make abortion a federal right, even gruesome late-term partial birth abortions — where scissors are shoved into the base of the skull to kill the child just before its head exits the birth canal. And anyone who refuses to perform an abortion will be legally penalized.

The pro-death abortion lovers in Congress thought they could fool America into passing their unlimited abortion bill. Let’s make it absolutely clear to them that we, the American people, will not tolerate the continued murder of innocent children. Please fax Congress NOW demanding they VOTE NO on HR 15, then read on for the news. — Mat

HR 15, the so-called “Equality Act,” creates new rights for the LGBTQ mafia. That alone is disturbing, as the bill seeks to force EVERYONE to accept and endorse sexually deviant behavior as “normal.”

However, a trojan horse is hiding in the legislation that is as destructive or even more so than the 550 sexually deviant “Q” paraphilias HR 15 protects.

The pro-death abortion lobby has wheedled their way into the morass, adding the stench of death to the already disastrous measure. This addition is designed to undo all the work we and others in the pro-life movement have accomplished to save the unborn.

HR 15 seeks to reverse the pro-life Dobbs ruling that overturned the Roe v. Wade’s massacre of more than 63 million babies. The bill orders changes to Section 1101 of Title XI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, making ALL abortion a federal right.

As such, if HR 15 passes, any doctor or medical institution’s refusal to perform an abortion will be considered unlawful!

The bill applies to “pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition.” Treatment for pregnancy or childbirth requires “treatment” to abort the child. Every state law will be preempted. No parental notice or consent, informed consent — no restrictions whatsoever on abortion from fertilization to birth.

ALL hospitals, medical providers, pharmacists, employers, and insurance companies will be forced to participate in chemical and surgical abortions. And abortions will be federally funded.

Sec. 1107 of HR 15 clearly states that “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (42 U.S.C. 2000bb et seq.) shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under, a covered title, or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.”

As a result, health insurance offered by churches, religious schools, and employers must cover abortion. No one can refuse because the Equality Act revokes the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA)!

Remember Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor who objected to abortion-inducing drugs and devices? They won under RFRA. They would not win under the Equality Act.

Before this bill, every time sex discrimination was written into law, abortion was excluded. Not so under this bill.

In addition to gutting religious freedom, HR 15 will preempt every state law. Any abortion restriction will violate this bill if passed into law.

Without question, this bill will force crisis pregnancy centers to refer women for abortion. This is what California tried to do a few years ago. But we dragged Attorney General Xavier Becerra (now secretary of Health and Human Services) to the Supreme Court — and won. But if HR 15 passes, bloodthirsty extremists will once again force pregnancy help centers to refer women to killing machines.

HR 15 applies to “perceptions” and “beliefs” and is not limited to a “physical facility or place.” It applies to websites, emails, social media, and more.

Therefore, this provision puts in jeopardy both longstanding federal conscience laws providing for protections for abortion objectors, and even the Hyde Amendment, prohibiting taxpayer funding for abortion.

All state and federal pro-life protections will be overridden.

Think about that for a moment! During COVID, radical governors fought to revoke our unalienable right to worship. Now, this bill would replace our right to religious freedom with a demand to murder children. And they have the nerve to call it the “Equality Act”!

Under this bill, a child in the womb has no rights — and neither do parents, spouses, health care providers, or pharmacists. There is NOTHING EQUAL about eliminating a helpless life and revoking religious freedom for all.

We can stop the Equality Act from making abortion a federal right. Tell Congress: “NO — I will not be forced to accept and promote abortion!”

VOTE NO on the Equality Act!

As we fight this dangerous bill, we continue to defend religious freedom and pro-life heroes like Sandra Merritt. I appreciate your prayers.
