Prediction: Israel-U.S. partnership key issue in 2020
Israel’s security and its relationship with the United States will remain one of President Trump's most critical election issues for 2020, predicts a pastor.
The Wolverine State could be the one to successfully send a dismemberment bill to the nation's high court.
The Michigan Legislature passed a bill making dismemberment abortions illegal, but pro-abortion Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) vetoed it. So Right to Life of Michigan is spearheading a petition drive for an election to overturn the governor's veto.
"Interest is off the charts," spokesman Chris Gast reports. "We've already taken orders for more than 100,000 petitions, so if everyone gets that, then that's more than twice the amount. We're just trying to keep up with all our volunteers out there."
345,000 signatures is "the magic mark" needed to initiate the legislation, but 400,000 signatures is the goal.
Gast says the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Alabama's appeal of a federal judge's decision overturning Alabama's dismemberment ban has not deterred volunteers in Michigan.
"I think it could be the case that they're waiting for the right law," he suggests. "Ours is a little different from the ones out there because it's specifically amending our partial-birth abortion law using the logic the Supreme Court's already used."
After a lengthy court battle, the Supreme Court upheld a ban on the partial birth abortion method in 2007. In that procedure, the preborn baby is delivered breach, except for the head. The child's brain is then suctioned, causing death, and then the delivery is completed.
