PRESS RELEASE: GLA Remembers Roe v. Wade
January 22, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Georgia Life Alliance
ROME, GA – Today marks the 42nd anniversary of the regrettable decision in Roe v. Wade. Since that haunting opinion was handed down by our Supreme Court in 1973, over 56,000,000 unborn babies have been legally aborted. This is a tragedy of enormous gravity. It has impacted everything in our culture, from the psychological and spiritual well-being of our women to the cultural value of human life to the declining birthrate and economic consequences.
Georgia Life Alliance Committee calls on our President, our U.S. Senators, our Congressmen, our Governor, and our State Legislature to act with the power vested in them to confront this tragedy.
We ask the House of Representatives to Pass H.R. 7 – No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015 to ensure that our national public funds are not wasted on this optional and unnecessary procedure. We also ask the United States House of Representatives to revive the planned consideration of H.R. 36 – the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – and to pass this powerful legislation and restrict abortion after 20-weeks gestation.
Both H.R. 7 and H.R. 36 promote respect, dignity, and protection of innocent human life.
“If we sit on the sidelines of this tragedy and do nothing, we affirm and condone the continued killing of our future generations. The pro-life community and pro-life lawmakers must recommit, on this infamous date, to forward movement and to step-by-step combat against the evil of abortion. Both H.R. 7 and H.R. 36 are targeted to save lives and we should ask for passage of both bills,” said Emily Matson, GLAC Executive Director.
Contact your Congressmen today and ask them to vote YES for H.R. 7. Also, ask them to request that H.R. 36 be placed back on the Agenda of the United States House of Representatives.
The Georgia Life Alliance advocates for the vulnerable, the abandoned, and the defenseless: the baby still in her mother’s womb, the orphaned child desperate for a safe and loving home, and the woman who finds herself in a desperate situation.
We will work tirelessly to bring attention and healing to the struggles of the unborn and other at-risk groups, endeavoring to help secure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Georgians.
