The American Nurses Association (ANA) currently holds a position IN OPPOSITION TO Assisted Suicide. A draft position statement CHANGES that. The ANA is asking for public comment from nurses. If the proposed change is adopted, nurses would be required to assist patients in ending their lives or to write a referral to someone who would. There would be NO OPT-OUT privilege. For more information, see here.

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a Senate vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311)...sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.)...
Sen. Sasse has stated:
“This bill is not actually about abortion. This is about a baby that has survived an abortion, and is born alive, and is on that table, cold, fighting for life, and crying out. And it’s about the practice that’s known as ‘backing away,’ where the abortion provider simply backs away from the table and leaves the baby to die from exposure and the elements...
“On Monday night, you’re actually going to have a chance to see the United States Senate vote–individual senators– put their money where their mouth is and see if they’re actually going to stand with the little guy, because the little guy is that little guy or gal on that table fighting for life.”
Watch the vote here!
UPDATE on story by NRLC.org
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate today voted 53-44 to advance the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), but pro-abortion Democrats, in a near-party-line-vote, blocked the bill from receiving the 60 votes necessary to move forward (“invoke cloture”). The bill would extend federal legal protection to babies who are born alive during an abortion.
“Today we saw the extremism of the abortion industry’s agenda on full display,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “The 44 members of the United States Senate who voted against this bill now need to explain to their constituents why they believe abortion is such an absolute ‘right’ that it protects what amounts to infanticide: willfully withholding life-saving care from a born-alive infant.”

KRLA at times receives emails from pro-life artists, musicians and writers who desire to share their work with the pro-life public.
We will re-post some of their contributions now which were on the Forum of our previous website, and post others later on.
We apologize that a description of Dennis Bowling's music video posted on Dec. 22 was mistakenly attributed to Jeremy Robin who had sent his video quite some time ago. We have corrected that, and appreciate the gracious "Don't worry" we received. Below is Dennis Bowling's wonderful music video, Message from Heaven.
He also shares his inspiration, below:
Approximately 5 years ago I woke around 3:00am with a melody on my heart.
I got out of bed, got my guitar and began to play, and to write down the words that came. If you’ve listened to the song you know that the message is not immediately clear, even thru the 2nd verse it’s still unclear. The song came to me in the same way.
The intent of the song is to bring healing to those moms and dads affected by abortion. As I realized what I was writing I began to weep. I did not have a box of tissues available so used approx. ½ roll of toilet paper before the song was complete. I mention this only to be truthful about the details, to share that the song was difficult to write, and to state that I am not the creator of the song merely the writer. I truly believe that as the song is titled that it is a “Message From Heaven”.
I believe that The Lord and these children deeply desire for Moms and Dads to be free from the guilt and shame accompanying abortion. As the song states “it’s time to forgive yourself”. As a parent I understand the need to know that your child is OK. Knowing the love of our Heavenly Father I’m certain that He takes care of these little ones (“He works all things for the good to those who love Him”).
Since writing the song I have read and heard of “near death experiences” in which people died and went to Heaven and saw multitudes of children. When they asked about these children they were told that they were aborted.
My prayer and the desire of all of Heaven is that one day you will be reunited with your beautiful child.
Love and Blessings...
