Babies and Undocumented Women Win in the Midwest After Republican Janssen Attacks Prenatal Care and FailsMonday, April 1st, 2013
We informed you last month with regard to Republicans like Sen. Charlie Janssen and Gov. Dave Heineman who have been attacking prenatal care and an undocumented woman’s right to choose life for their babies.
Shirl Mora James is a Civil Rights and Immigration lawyer in the Midwest who has committed her life to protecting a woman’s right to choose in keeping their babies. Shirl is also the President of a woman-led movement via SOMOS INDEPENDENTS (formerly the National Tequila Party Movement) who testified in the Nebraska legislature in support of women who want to keep their babes. She is not your ordinary internet arm chair revolutionary — nay, she walks her talk not limited to hosting rallies in an effort to increase getting out the vote and conducting educational seminars with regard to the DREAM Act and DACA. She is a mover and a shaker and you can hear her testimony here.
We are happy to announce Janssen’s efforts have failed. Life won today and evil plans by organizations like FAIR and the John Tanton network were destroyed. Hallelujah.
According to 1011 Now:
Lawmakers have halted an attempt to repeal state-funded prenatal care for the unborn children of illegal immigrants in Nebraska.
The Legislature’s Health and Human Services Committee voted 6-0 to kill the measure, with one lawmaker abstaining. Janssen says he was disappointed with the vote.
Here is Shirl Mora James testimony regarding prenatal care … one more time for the gipper!
