Thanks for your support with lifesaving legislation, but we’re not done

As many of you know by now the Georgia House passed House Bill 481, known as the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act. This will outlaw abortions after a doctor has determined a heartbeat. This bill sponsored by Representative Ed Setzler and supported by Governor Brian Kemp passed through the House of Representatives late Thursday night (see related Index article) by a 93-73 vote. The bill now will have to proceed to the Senate before it has a chance to land on the desk of Governor Kemp.

At present this bill has been assigned to the Science and Technology Committee, chaired by Senator Renee Unterman (see the video of the bills status). The bill is scheduled to be heard and hopefully voted on Thursday afternoon at 3:00 PM.

Upon approval of the committee, the bill will go to the Rules Committee where it will await approval to go the Senate floor for a full vote before April 2, which is the final day of the legislative session.

You can play a big part in the final passage of this important lifesaving legislation! Please make plans now to contact the Science and Technology Committee and ask them to vote in favor of House Bill 481! In addition to contacting the committee, please contact your state Senator and ask them to vote in favor of the bill and to encourage other Senators to do the same! 

Please be in prayer as we look forward to passing the most significant piece of pro-life legislation in the state of Georgia since Roe vs. Wade.
