Tara also urged legislators on the committee to VOTE based on a well formed conscience and to not invoke their faith in support of the pro-death legislation making its way through our legislature. Isn’t it time we hold our leaders to a higher moral standard and keep them accountable? 

HB 51 will now go to the house floor for a full vote and this will show us exactly where our elected officials stand. 

Please contact your house representative by phone AND email and urge them to vote no on HB 51. Go to Santa Fe and talk to your legislator face to face and urge them to oppose this legislation. Your voice matters. 


Thank you for standing with us for life and truth! 

“Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.” (3 John 1:8)
