Rep. Colton Moore Says Citizens Should Demand Passage Of Anti-Abortion Heartbeat Bill

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Rep. Colton Moore, Republican from Dade County, is urging citizens to call for passage of the anti-abortion Heartbeat Bill.

He said:

Dear Citizens of Georgia, The matter of abortion before us is one of the most controversial bills in Georgia’s history. Passing by only two votes in the House, no vote this session has been as close as House Bill 481. This bill pulls at the deepest heartstrings of who we are as citizens and human beings as we fight for a better Georgia for all.

As your legislator, you entrust in me to represent your voice on every issue. The time has come for the people of this state to declare our views on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, even for those who are speechless in their defense and clinging to life in their mother’s womb.

According to the Center for Disease Control, over 600,000 abortions occur each year across the United States of America. It is estimated that Georgia performs over 30,000 yearly, making it one of the highest producing abortion states in the country. House Bill 481 protects the heartbeat of Georgia’s unborn children.

This bill protects life from abortion in Georgia the moment the heartbeat of a fetus is detected. House Bill 481 will protect more than 99 percent of these deaths. Currently, abortions after rape or incest account for less than one percent of abortions in Georgia. In such cases, this bill will allow the mother to make such a decision on her own accord and with God. We have an incredible opportunity to protect hundreds of thousands of living, breathing humans over the next decade that would otherwise be killed under existing Georgia abortion laws.

Should this bill not pass, over 50,000 lives will be extinguished over the next two years from abortions that would have otherwise been made illegal with House Bill 481. My fellow legislators and I must make a decision to move Georgia forward and protect lives now or reject this bill in the hope of a ‘better’ bill in the future.

I strongly urge you to think about the decision that will bring the greatest good to the greatest number of unborn Georgians today. House Bill 481 will impose some of the most strict abortion laws in the country. This bill and the progress I have outlined above reaffirms my commitment to advancing the protection of all unborn lives across the United States of America.

I look forward to passing this bill and demand all previous ‘Yea’ votes hold strong to their values and instincts. Keep in mind the death toll that will otherwise occur if we reject this bill. These 50,000 lives, created in the image of God, rest in our hands. This bill provides a rare opportunity for us to protect the living, unborn citizens and future leaders of Georgia.

Just had dinner Tuesday night at Jonathan's Grille location in Hendersonville, Tn. When in Murfreesboro or Nashville, it's one of my favs. Just a great sports bar concept and menu.

As I stood in the checkout line of the Walmart in Tiftonia this week, my newest friend named Harold asked me, “What’s the difference between an outlaw and an in-law.

CFC Falls To Detroit City, 2-1

Alun Webb found himself in a familiar setting: streaking down the pitch on a breakaway in the 7. After Juan Hernandez’s lead pass led him past the defense, Webb’s only obstacle was the prowling Detroit City goalkeeper. As he entered the box, Webb slowed down ever so slightly, and began to load up for the inevitable volley. That shot never came, as Detroit’s Tendai Jirira ... (click for more)
