AUGUSTA, Apr. 28 (LSN) – The two Christian groups who spearheaded the successful campaign to revoke Maine’s pro-homosexual law last February are set to repeat their performance, this time focusing on partial-birth abortion. The Christian Civic League of Maine and the Christian Coalition of Maine are launching a petition drive to put the issue to a public vote. Last year, Maine’s political leaders refused to ban the gruesome later-term abortion procedure, even though it included a political compromise, in the form of an exception for cases in which it is claimed the life of the mother is at stake. In order to trigger a referendum on the issue, the groups will have to collect over 51,000 signatures. Although the prospect seems daunting, pro-aborts in Maine are worried, given the success of the recent campaign against the now-defunct homosexual privileges law.
