Conservative lawmakers plan a "prayercast" on Wednesday against healthcare reform legislation.
Sens. Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) and Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), along with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will team up with a group of pastors and religious leaders for a "prayercast" organized by the socially conservative Family Research Council's action group.
The lawmakers will participate in a prayer service broadcast online on Wednesday evening to pray against "the threats to the God-given right to human life through government funding of abortions, our health from rationing, our family finances from higher taxes, and our general freedom posed by the government plan to take over healthcare."
"We will enter into a time of prayer for the nation, and our leaders. Your engagement and prayer is more critical than ever as Congress will very soon vote on a final health care bill," a description of the event on FRC Action's website says.
