Oregon Catholic Conference and My Thanks!

Dear Advocates for Life, The Oregon Catholic Conference material came in the mail today. There was no mention of any lobbying on their part of HB 2020 the Laci and Connor Peterson Law. The only thing under "Advocacy for Life" is HB 2101, which is regarding Homeland Security. Declares state policy relating to adoptions. Requires Department of Human Services, Oregon licensed adoption agency or approved child-caring agency of this state that may consent to adoption of child to give preferences to prospective adoptive parents who are married over those who are unmarried or same-sex partners. Requires department or agency to give preference to prospective adoptive parents who live in this state over those who live outside this state. Provides exceptions. (relatives, etc. CW) The Marriage Team Date: Monday-February 21 Time: 8:30 A.M. Room: 357 Public Hearing and Possible Work Session HB 2020 Expands criminal homicide to include causing death of unborn child. Invited Testimony Public Testimony Staff respectfully requests that you submit 25 collated copies of written materials at the time of your testimony. Persons making presentations including the use of video, DVD, PowerPoint or overhead projection equipment are asked to contact Committee staff 24 hours prior to the meeting. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the prayers and support for my family. I would love to share YOUR stories someday (with permission of course) to uplift, comfort and educate. We are truly one family in Christ. God Bless, Carolyn Wendell “We shall be called to account not only for every idle word, but also for every idle silence.” St. Ambrose V.O.C.A.L.
