Frequently Asked Questions
Abortion remains legal in all fifty states. While lives are certainly being saved, justice for the preborn has not yet been met. This is why it is absolutely critical to push for legislation that provides equal protection for babies in the womb.
Any measure that falls short of equal protection is unjust and violates God’s standard for justice. Equal protection is simply the Golden Rule applied to the issue of justice for the preborn (Matthew 6:31). The law must afford equal protection to babies in the womb as those outside the womb.
Statements amplify our voices and communicate to local leadership that there is support for a culture of life. This matters especially because politicians fear losing their political seat. Putting stacks of statements on their desks shows them they have support to do what is right before God. Statements also show them how many votes they could lose if they do not stand up for what is right.
Each state needs a representative within a district, whether House or Senate to introduce the bill in the committee. Before this happens, the legislator must be vetted and prepared by Christians to stand strong in the face of much adversity that comes with supporting such legislation. EAN can help facilitate the proper channels and connections for legal advisement on the bill itself when a legislator agrees to propose it.
For a starting point, please see Our Message to Legislators. We would encourage starting with Scripture to learn how to speak on this issue. Those in office need God’s truth and they need to know they will be supported for taking a courageous stance. Point men and women to the truth and call upon them to do their duty before God and make good on the oath that they swore to the Constitution to uphold the right to life. Do not fear kings, fear the One before whom they and you will give an account.
