David Ripley: Pro-Life Battle Heats Up in Michigan

April 7th, 2010 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

A couple of news-worthy items have caught our attention in recent days.

First, there is the intense opposition building to Rep. Bart Stupak in his home state. The Tea Party Express has been working for the past couple weeks at organizing a series of rallies opposing his re-election.

Fresh off their confrontation with Sen. Reid in Nevada, the Tea Party Express is heading full steam in Michigan. They are organizing 5 tea party rallies in Stupak’s district. Their hope is to focus attention on his betrayal of his promises to America that he would stand to the end in defense of preborn children. Instead, he helped secure passage of ObamaCare by swinging a crucial bloc of votes at the end to support the infamous bill.

In addition, Tea Party Express organizers are hoping to leave behind a war chest of $100,000 to run independent expenditures against Stupak.

And then there is the battle raging in the Michigan Legislature over 4 Planned Parenthood bills. The most problematic may be HB5164, which requires a pharmacy to fill every prescription without “bias” or “delay”.

During our two year struggle to secure conscience protections in Idaho for pharmacists and other health care professionals, Planned Parenthood & Friends consistently dipped and dodged their national agenda: forcing health care professionals to toe their abortion line. Pharmacists in Illinois and Washington have already felt the sting of their lash.

Planned Parenthood of Idaho did, in fact, try and persuade the Board of Pharmacy to support legislation which would require pharmacists to fill all prescriptions like automatons. Fortunately they did not succeed. With passage of SB1353, health care professionals in Idaho have some room to breathe.

We pray success to pro-Lifers in Michigan in defeating Planned Parenthood’s agenda.
