March for Life 2016 – Washington DC.

Marking the 43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, hundreds of thousands of pro-life men, women and children will be traveling to Washington, DC to march on Capitol Hill. This year, Georgia Life Alliance will be present to March with any Georgia Pro-lifers who would like to join us.

As the March beginning at 1pm, GLA Representative Susan Lataif will meet Georgia marchers who would like to march together on the NW Corner of 7th and Constitution with the GLA Banner.

We’d encourage any planning to attend to call ahead and make an appointment with your Senators and Congressman, being aware that you will be required to pass through metal detectors to enter any House and Senate Buildings.

Rally Bus: For those of you looking for bus transportation, there are about 40 spots left to confirm the trip leaving from and returning to Atlanta, going up (arriving at 11am) and coming back over-night. Cost is $160 RT. Details here: http://rallybus.net/marchforlife/

You can find more information about the March here: http://marchforlife.org/mfl-2016/rally-march-info/

Schedule

11:45 a.m. Musical Opening
12:00 p.m. Rally
1:00 p.m. March

We’d love to hear from you! If you go, tag your photos with #GLAmarch to encourage others unable to attend.

Georgia Legislative Session – Day 1

Today marked Day 1 of the Georgia 2016 Legislative Session.

Kristina Twitty, GLA’s Director of Operations was on-site today to encourage a culture of life in Georgia, under the Gold Dome. We’ll be working on two pieces of legislation this year.

The first is HB 555 – Ensuring Accuracy in Women’s Healthcare Reporting. Rep. Joyce Chandler (R-Grayson) introduced HB 555 in 2015.

If it becomes law, HB 555 will:

– Ensure all abortion providers certify in every abortion that the patient has been provided informed consent prior to performing an abortion (surgical or chemical)

– Ensure abortion providers report the disposal of fetal remains uniformly regardless of the facility in which the abortion is performed

– Ensure the Department of Public Health has accurate reporting on the number of minor girls obtaining an abortion without parental notice.

Secondly, GLA is excited about the opportunity to further support our closest allies in this battle to protect the unborn – our Pregnancy Resource Centers? These not-for-profit partners are essential in reaching the hearts and needs of women facing the difficult path of an unplanned pregnancy.  We expect to see the Georgia Legislature and our friend, Senator Renee Unterman, take this partnership to heart and support the Centers with some exciting legislation.

We’d love to have you join us in this effort by calling your Legislator to thank them for their pro-life stand and encourage their protection of the unborn. Find your legislator’s information here.
