Urgent call for prayer and four pro-life Spanish speaking American women to travel to DR and meet with legislators…
Back in April an overwhelming majority of Dominican lawmakers voted to protect the country from the ravages of abortion and guarantee the right to life from conception to natural death. There is no death penalty. Legislators acted to vote the provision into the constitution because of international pro-abortion groups pressure to decriminalize abortion–the vote was 167 to 32. Abortion is penalized in the Dominican Republic.
Now it seems the big guns are being called in. The story follows:
June 10th, 2009 [URGENT]
Dear Friends of the Preborn,
Dr. Gene Antonio, missionary in the Dominican Republic (DR), called us yesterday to report that Obama has turned up the heat on the legislators there – AND THERE WILL BE A RE-VOTE ON THE PRO-LIFE PROVISION IN THE NEW CONSTITUTION! According to legislators, they are receiving great pressure from the Obama adminstration through Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s office. Her people are on the ground in the DR determined to see the pro-life provision overturned. A re-vote has been scheduled for the end of this month!
You may recall the pro-life provision, which declared abortion illegal at the Constitutional level, won overwhelmingly last month.
Dr. Antonio is asking for two things:
1. Pray that Obama’s efforts are defeated, and that the vote will be even more pro-life this time.
2. He is asking for four Spanish-speaking American women to come to the DR and meet with legislators to inform them how America has changed or suffered under legal abortion. PLEASE CONSIDER BEFORE THE LORD GOING TO THE DOMINCAN REPUBLIC.
Contact us at 414-462-3399 if you are interested in making this trip. The time is urgent – you must leave within the next 10 days!
May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!
