Does anybody really want to stop the killing now? You can.

If you think you are ending abortion by attending conventions, symposiums and protests, this column is NOT for you. If you think 1,200,000 U.S. abortions each year is sufficient progress in 39 years, then go back to doing whatever it is you do. One thing is for sure, whatever that is, it isn’t ending abortion.

Fifty-four million innocent babies are dead, and I, for one, am tired of talk. It’s time to bring the killing to an END … right now.

Think it can’t be done? Think again.

There is a place in America on the verge of ending nearly every abortion. That place is Ohio – the “Heart of it all” – Ground Zero in the abortion battle.

A bill in Ohio, which has already passed the Ohio House, will protect nearly every child facing an abortionist’s knife. It’s called the Heartbeat Bill, and it will ensure that “if the heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected.”

They said it wouldn’t pass in committee. It did. They said it wouldn’t pass the Ohio House. It did. They said there wouldn’t be hearings in the Senate. There were.

All we need now is for Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus and his Republican Senate leadership to call for a vote in committee and a vote on the Senate floor.

We’re inches away from the finish line, but we’re up against a wall of resistance. It isn’t from the pro-aborts. It is from those who call themselves “pro-life.” Here’s a cartoon glimpse into what we’re facing.

If you’re serious about ending abortion, I’m not inviting you to a convention. I’m not asking you to sign a petition. I’m asking for you to send this article and/or these videos to your email lists and Facebook friends. We need to make sure the stalling Republican senators can do nothing but take your calls until they bring the Heartbeat Bill to a vote.

Then, go to and send those legislators something they’ll actually like getting: red roses (the symbol of life and love). We’ll be delivering bouquets of three red roses, for the three babies the Heartbeat Bill will save every hour when it becomes law. Each one comes with a personalized card and a message from you: “The Heartbeat Bill will save three Ohio babies with beating hearts every single hour. PLEASE don’t wait any longer to pass H.B. 125 to PROTECT them! With Heartfelt thanks, Your Name, City.”

And because God’s word doesn’t return void, we’re putting this verse on the back of the cards:

Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; 
save them as they stagger to their death. 
Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” 
For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. 
He who guards your soul knows you knew. 
He will repay all people as their actions deserve. 

– Proverbs 24:11-12 (NLT)

We will be delivering your roses to all 33 Ohio senators this Valentine’s Day. Help provide the positive push needed.

Ohio is on the verge of victory in the abortion battle, but we’re calling in the reinforcements because we need your help. Call each of the following Senate leaders today (and every day) with this message: “Please stop the deadly delay and bring the Heartbeat Bill to a vote this week to legally protect every unborn Ohio baby who has a beating heart!”

Senate President Tom Niehaus (614) 466-8082

Sen. Shannon Jones (614) 466-9737

Sen. Keith Faber (614) 466-7584

Sen. Tom Patton  (614) 466-8056

Chairman Scott Oelslager (614) 466-0626

Sen. Peggy Lehner (614) 466-4538

This week we celebrated what would be Ronald Reagan’s 101st birthday. What would Reagan do? If he were here now, I think he’d say something like this:

If we don’t stop calling until they call for a vote, we’ll get our vote and children will be protected from abortion in Ohio and all the states lined up to follow suit. And the bill crafted to be the arrow in the heart of Roe v. Wade will bring abortion on demand crumbling to the ground!

We are on the verge of victory but need your calls/emails/postings/and prayers to get the Heartbeat Bill over the finish line. Your help will provide the final push to finally bring the killing to an end … right now.
