“Seven things are an abomination to the LORD: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness that speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”
On February 7th, our friends at Family Research Council (FRC) reported that a Circuit Court Judge in California ruled in favor of a young cake maker who refused to make a wedding cake for two lesbians on the basis of her First Amendment right not to be coerced by the state to do something against her conscience.
Judge David Lampe correctly ruled that the right of conscience, freedom of speech and thought, trumped the “personal offense” argument put forth by the state.
So how does freedom of conscience, thought, and speech get trumped in the matter of forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions in Oregon? It doesn’t… unless a radical democrat controlled and highly partisan state legislature, cheered on by an equally radical pro-abortion Governor, decided it should!
On August 15, 2017, when Governor Kate Brown signed House Bill 3391 into law, under the guise of an “emergency,” millions of Oregon taxpayer dollars were earmarked to pay for abortions in Oregon. In that same partisan bill, an additional $500,000 was designated for the abortions of illegal aliens.
Kate Brown, her radical democrat cohorts in the State Legislature, along with her Planned Parenthood friends who are happy to “shed innocent blood,” devised “wicked plans” without consideration of the serious moral and conscience objections of taxpayers, “ran swiftly to evil” “bearing false witness” in how this benefits Oregonians but in reality simply lines the pockets of her pro-abortion friends and furthers infanticide.
Brown, and her allies – inside and out – of the Oregon Legislature took advantage of their partisan majority to force us all with our tax dollars to become complicit in these immoral, grisly, and inhumane acts…unless we STOP IT on November 6th!
Oregonians have an absolute right, granted by God, and embedded in the U.S. Constitution to say “NO” to state legitimated murder of the innocents, using our tax dollars to do so.
The state has no authority to compel it’s citizens to support something that we know by conscience and moral conviction, is abhorrent in our eyes and God’s. It is tyranny and dictatorial to force us to do so!
As millions of Americans said through the ballot box, in reference to the bureaucrats, politicians, and misguided ideologues in Washington D.C., it is time to “Drain the swamp”… but for Oregonians in 2018, it is time to ‘drain the swamp’ in Salem!

These simple, caring actions by Christians throughout Oregon will ensure the matter is placed on the November General Election ballot for all registered voters in Oregon to intervene for the unborn and all who do not wish their taxes to be used for such an utterly abhorrent practice.
