Mother’s Day AD

Mother’s Day AD will again be in the OWH



We have used billboards to get our message of the importance of life to Nebraskans the last few years.
Before that we listed all the names in a full-page ad in the Omaha World Herald and we will do it again this year. The Sunday OWH goes across Nebraska and it is a way that we show pro-life strength.
It is a wonderful opportunity for you to honor your own mother publicly. Please let us know if it is to be in the “Memorial” section for deceased moms. Each donor can use up to 27 typed spaces. Please use the form with this newsletter.

Will YOUR NAME be included?

Stop Discriminatory Senate Bill

Urge Your Senators to Stop the Anti-Religious, Anti-Constitutional and Anti-Women Murray Bill.

   The Senate plans to vote as early as Tuesday on a bill offered by Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) that would “overturn” the Supreme Court’s ruling in Hobby Lobby and force all private and employer based healthcare plans to cover contraceptives, drugs which can destroy a human embryo and sterilization services, without copay—or face crippling fines.
   The Supreme Court correctly held that the HHS mandate violates the free exercise rights of family businesses like Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, who do not want to violate their conscience in order to earn a living.  But that hasn’t stopped Senator Murray, pushed by radical groups like NARAL, Planned Parenthood and National Women’s Law Center, to demand religious American’s bow to their pro-abortion agenda.
   But this bill is not only anti-religious and anti-constitutional—its anti-woman!
   Nearly one-third of the business plaintiffs in these cases calling the HHS mandate on religious liberty grounds are women.  In addition, women judges have voted to halt implementation of the mandate 24 times.  In only 15 cases have they voted in favor of the employer mandate.  Finally, more women oppose the mandate than support it in poll after poll across the United States.
   How can Senator Murray and this bill’s supporters claim to be supporting women when they are directly opposing the sincerely held religious beliefs of so many American women?
   Please urge your Senators to oppose the misleadingly titled “Protect Women’s Health From Corporate Interference Act of 2014.”  This discriminatory bill runs contrary to the values Americans hold dear and the ruling the Supreme Court handed down earlier this month.
 Urge Your Senators to Stop the Anti-Religious, Anti-Constitutional and Anti-Women Murray Bill.

The Pill Kills Campaign Takes Over the Country by Storm

Washington, DC—-American Life League. and nearly 60 cosponsoring organizations are coordinating a large-scale, nationwide campaign to inform women about the deadly dangers of the pill and similar hormonal contraceptives.

“The mountain of evidence that these drugs are killers cannot just be swept under the rug,” said Judie Brown, president of ALL. “We need to get out there and warn women of the dangers they face. Planned Parenthood and other pill peddlers are deceiving women and causing their deaths.”

For the next three days, organizers are planning to storm social media on Twitter and Facebook to bring light to the dangers of not just the contraceptive pill, but all other contraceptives targeted at women that damage their reproductive health.

On June 5,#ThePillKills hash tag will be posted on Twitter all day as part of ALL’s #ThePillKills Tweetstorm to bring attention to the devastating effects of the pill. “Because of hormonal contraceptives, women are dying and suffering permanent, debilitating injuries from blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes,” said Rita Diller, director of The Pill Kills campaign.

On Saturday, June 7, all across the country The Pill Kills protests and vigils will take place outside abortion clinics and pharmacies that sell contraceptives. Activists will distribute literature provided by ALL to the public, outlining all of the dangers and risks posed by contraception and contraceptive devices.

Opposition to #ThePillKills has already manifested itself on The Pill Kills Facebook page and Twitter activity, and this past Tuesday night there were attempts at sabotaging ALL’s national organizing conference call by pro-abortion and pro-contraception extremists. “Planned Parenthood does not want our message heard,” said Rey Flores, ALL director of outreach. “We will not be silenced, not when lives are at stake.”

The Pill Kills is on the web at The Pill Kills
