The House of Representatives today approved a that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth.
The vote for the bill broke down on mostly partisan lines with Republicans supporting the ban on late-term abortions and Democrats opposing it.
Should the Senate approve the bill, President Barack Obama has issued a veto threat.
VOCAL's same old song. We have NO Oregon Catholic voice at the State Capitol. There is some actual information, from a very reliable source that the man who is supposed to represent Catholics disses the Church to others. This makes him impotent when even speaking up for Catholics. The words are hollow, it is embarrassing and scandalous when we are expected give our "time, talents and treasure" when much of it goes down the drain and isn't used to our strength. What are we supposed to do? There are things we are called to do, and it might be the time very soon to put these into action.
We have allowed too many opportunities for Oregon speak up for life slip through our fingers. Not the only "pro-life" priority 'capitol punishment' and letting this belief stand and not be corrected. There must be collusion at the Pastoral Center for this to be allowed. Amazing.
