Important Update on RHNDA and HRAA‏

Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act (RHNDA) and the Human Rights Amendment Act (HRAA)

From Amy McInerny
National Committee for a Human Life Admendment

Please act today to defend religious liberty! Your action is still needed to help stop two dangerous pieces of legislation recently passed by the Council of the District of Columbia and signed by the mayor. These acts, the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act (RHNDA) and the Human Rights Amendment Act (HRAA) are unprecedented threats to everyone’s religious liberty.

Because of Washington, D.C.’s unique character as a federal district, the Constitution grants Congress the authority to legislate for D.C. and to disapprove recently passed legislation. On April 21, 2015 the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee advanced H.J. Res. 43, the Resolution of Disapproval of the Reproductive Health Nondiscrimination Act (RHNDA), by a vote of 20-16. To date there has been no action on the resolution of disapproval of HRAA (H.J. Res. 44).

We should renew our urgent request to Congress to rescind RHNDA and HRAA. Please take action immediately on the NCHLA action alert found here.

Thank you for making time to respond to this action alert in defense of life and liberty. Together we will be heard.

 For more information about these bills, please read our Legislative Report.

The National Committee for a Human Life Amendment is dedicated to pursuing this vision. The organization's objectives include educating citizens, developing pro-life legislative networks, and offering programs in support of pro-life legislation. Among its various activities, NCHLA produces educational and program resources, communicates with leaders about legislative priorities, and presents legislative seminars throughout the year. In a special way, NCHLA assists dioceses, state Catholic conferences, and Catholic lay groups. The Committee also works closely with the Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
