An Arkansas state House committee approved a ban on abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy.
The House Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee on Tuesday approved the 12-week abortion ban on an 11-5 vote. An according to an AP report, “panel had approved the restriction by a voice vote earlier, but House Speaker Davy Carter sent it back to the panel after Democrats objected to the way it was handled.”
Now the full House will vote on the measure, along with another one that bans abortions after 20 weeks.
The Arkansas Senate voted in January for the bill that would ban virtually all abortions in the state. The measure would ban abortions at the point when a unborn child’s heart starts to beat.
At 22 days into pregnancy, before most women know they are pregnant, unborn children complete the development of their heart to the point that a heartbeat begins and the bill would stop abortions at that point.

This is nothing more than intimidation by the federal government, ignoring laws and violating the trust of the people. This video needs to be shared far and wide. The reason for the raid will shock you! The tactics that are used are determined to instill fear. hat tip to my friend D for this post!

Your vote does make a difference, please get out and vote!
The times that we are in are hard on everyone and they are most likely going to get harder. Every church is thinking about what they can do to help and reach out to those in need. One of the ways to do that is to feed the children. This is one of the things that we are doing in our church. This is not something that every church is equipped to do. We are fortunate that our building was once a school and many of hook ups were already there.
Pastor Kendrix and members of the congregation worked for years to restore and update all the facilities. It gave us a wonderful opportunity, but it takes a lot of work. All of the work is volunteer and many of the supplies are as well. Please keep us in your prayers, for the continued ability to reach out to children, and even adults in need in the community. And if you happen to be in the area, please stop in for a visit. If you live in the area and need a church, we will welcome you. I have included a link to the church website on the blogroll, and on my favorite Christian sites. I am also including it below. God bless!
