It was forty-four years ago this past Sunday, January 22, 1973, that the US Supreme Court decided in the case of Roe vs. Wade to make abortion on demand legal in all fifty states. Nine justices declared all states’ laws prohibiting abortion unconstitutional. In these forty-four years it is likely that somewhere over fifty million babies have been aborted. Almost all of those babies were killed because they were unwanted not because the mother’s life was at risk. Read more about that here. We must end this! And there is something you can do to help.
The Heartbeat Bill (HR – 490) is an effort to do just that! It has been introduced in the US House of Representatives by Rep. Steve King (R) of Iowa. If this bill is made into law it will make it illegal to perform abortions on babies whose heartbeat can be detected by the physician. A baby’s’ heartbeat is detectable as early as the sixth week of pregnancy. Hundreds of thousands of babies would be saved from abortion each year by this legislation.

Rep. Steve King, I stand with you on this! May God bless your efforts to see this legislation signed into law.
All pro-life people can help at this point. You can contact your US Congressman to express your desire that he/she support this legislation and insure that it passes. Click here to find your congressman’s contact information.
You can also share this blog post on your social media accounts to inform others in your church and community. And the most powerful thing you can do it pray. Pray with your family during family worship, with your small group, with your congregation, etc.
