Mahalo to Gov. Lingle and HRTL's Grassroots "Army" for the defeat of SB-2166

We have some wonderful news for all of you and we need you to pass this on through your e-mail networks.

The good news is that on Tuesday, July 11th around 11am, Governor Lingle vetoed the horrible bill SB-2166, that included abortion provisions for minors!

We all need to call or write her office and thank her for doing the right thing this time. It's important to let our elected officials know that we appreciate it when they do something good as Governor Lingle did with regard to this bill.

Her office number is 586-0034. Her fax is 586-0006 and her e-mail address is Governor.Lingle@hawaii.gov. You might also want to call and thank the Lt. Governor as well. His information and the names and information for all the legislators that voted against this bill will be included at the bottom of this page.

Hawaii Right to Life is only as effective as the grassroots supporters that respond in the time of need. Those of you reading these words that acted when we contacted you can know that you played a major part in preventing more deaths to innocent babies. Please contact your friends and family members that you know participated with us and thank them on our behalf.

In the meantime we want to say to all of you that responded to our message and contacted the Governor a big "Mahalo Nui Loa" and "God Bless You All!"

Dear Gov. Lingle,

I was pleased to see that you and Lt. Gov. Aiona are running for
re-election. You've done a good job serving the people of our islands, and I wish you and your campaign much success in the next
term.

I also want to thank you for your veto of SB-2166. This bill's abortion provisions for minors were not in the best interests
of our people. So mahalo nui loa for your stand on this issue.

with much aloha,
Scott Tompkins
