Conference Committee to Hear SB501: Mandatory Abortion Promotion
By Hawaii Family Forum @ 7:04 PM :: 5377 Views :: First Amendment, Life

The "Bully Bill" Scheduled for Conference Committee

From Hawaii Family Forum, April 20, 2017

The watered down version of SB501 (Relating to Health) has been scheduled for a hearing in the conference committee tomorrow (04-21-17) at 1:00PM in conference room 016.  It is the fourth item on the agenda.  Because the current version has removed the word "abortion," some members believe that it will survive a constitutional challenge.  Local Alliance Defending Freedom attorney, Jim Hochberg, disagrees.  Compelled speech is compelled speech - no matter how they reword it.

The House Members assigned to the committee are:

Rep. Della Belatti - Co-Chair

Rep. Scott Nishimoto - Co-Chair

Rep. Bert Kobayashi

Rep. Cynthia Thielen

The Senate Members assigned to the committee are:

Sen. Rosalyn Baker - Chair

Sen. Gil Keith-Agaran - Co-Chair

Sen. Jill Tokuda - Co-Chair

Sen. Michelle Kidani

Sen. Karl Rhoads

Although no oral or written testimony is allowed for the hearing, you can call these members and ask them to vote NO ON SB 501!  Keep in mind that if you are not a constituent, they may not take your information.  If you do live in their district, then definitely make that call!

We will continue to keep you posted on the progress of the bill.

Mahalo for all your prayers and support of our faith-based pregnancy resource centers.
