Hidden Dangers in Connecticut Proposed Amendment – Intercessors for America

This is yet another attempt to alter a state’s constitution to favor antibiblical principles.

From Breitbart. Connecticut Democrats are looking to enshrine discrimination protections for abortion and gender identity into the state Constitution.

Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.

The measure, Senate Joint Resolution No. 4, would add state’s equal protection clause and bar discrimination “based on pregnancy, including preventing, initiating, continuing, or terminating a pregnancy; sexual orientation; gender identity and expression; and related health care.”

“Supporters say this measure simply strengthens Connecticut’s right to privacy, but those opposed are concerned this proposal would open the door to issues in areas like abortion and women’s sports,” FOX61 reported. …

Pro-life groups have also warned against the proposal because it could open the doors to more abortions later in pregnancy. …

Democrat Senate President Pro Tempore Martin Looney claims the amendment is simply about “the much broader question of right to privacy” and said lawmakers are “not creating any new rights at all.” …

If the legislature passes the resolution, it will appear on the ballot in the upcoming November election for voters to decide on. To pass the legislature, the bill requires a 75 percent majority approval in both the state House and Senate.
