“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5
The influential and powerful pro-life omnibus bill, the “Humanity in Healthcare Act” was passed by the Kentucky House of Representatives on March 2, 2022, by a vote of 77 – 20. Now the important bill resides in the Kentucky Senate where it awaits a very anticipated vote today.
Hopefully, the Senate will do what is right and pass this bill today. However, due to some of the changes made to the bill in the Senate, if passed, it will have to go back to the House and be concurred with by the end of tomorrow in order to pass the General Assembly and be sent to the Governor’s desk for signing.
The essence of House Bill 3 is to defend and protect the dignity of human life within the medical profession. To accomplish this aim, this piece of legislation encompasses significant pro-life provisions.
One key provision found in the bill is that it prohibits abortion-inducing drugs from being provided by courier, delivery, or mail service or in any school facility or on state grounds. Another key provision in the bill is the requiring of dignified disposal of fetal remains. Also, there is a key provision prohibiting the use of public funds for abortion procedures. These are a few among other important pro-life provisions in the bill.
Furthermore, the Biden Administration has allowed abortion drugs to be delivered by mail to individuals without ever seeing a physician in person. This bill will reverse that decision and will once again mandate in Kentucky that individuals must see a physician in person before such drugs could be prescribed.
LET US PRAY…
Father, empower the Kentucky Senate to casts a vote for righteousness by voting in favor of House Bill 3. Lord, may each Kentucky Senator be convicted by Your Spirit that human life, made in Your image, is worth protecting. Father, we pray that abortion will soon not only be stamped out here in Kentucky but also in our nation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
