The 2nd meeting of the MD Coalition and the Pro-Life Caucus was held last week. It was a fantastic meeting, and really continued to solidify the Unity of the Maryland Pro-Life movement that we saw during the Summer of Mercy 2.0. There were legislators, activist groups, lobbyist groups, churches, and Pregnancy Centers present…and everyone is still very interested in continuing to work together moving forward in MD.
The abortion center regulations drafted by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene were discussed, along with legislative and general strategy discussions. There will be much more information about the regulations coming out in the next few weeks, and there will be a FORMAL comment period coming up this year, so everyone will have a chance to voice their opinion about the regulations to the State. We will make sure everyone knows when this comment period will start, and the good and the bad points about the regulations themselves.
We have launched a brand new letter-writing campaign on the KickOutCarhart website. We urge everyone to go to the website and TAKE ACTION NOW. We will be writing, emailing, and calling Todd Stave, who is the owner/landlord of the building where Germantown Health and Reproductive Services operates and where Carhart is performing late-term abortions.
Make plans now to attend one of the local Maryland 40 Days for Life kickoff rallies, and sign up for an hour a day or an hour a week to stand Vigil and pray at one or more of the Vigil locations!
