You Can Protect Pain-capable Unborn Children Nationally

Please read this alert from National Right to Life.  This bill  would create a national ban on abortions after 20 weeks.  Yes, our congressional delegation is not sympathetic to life but they need to hear from us, their constituents.

If you live in Congressman Lynch's district, remember, all during the Senate Primary, he said he is pro-life.  I am sure he considers himself pro-life and, now that he is not campaigning,he might be very open to a sensible bill like this.

Please read the alert carefully and ACT!


NRLC-Backed Bill to Protect Pain-Capable Unborn Children

After 20 Weeks Moves Towards Floor of U.S. House --

Pro-Abortion Groups Mounting Intense Resistance


WASHINGTON (June 4, 2013) -- The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) is calling on NRLC affiliates and other pro-life supporters nationwide to act now to secure rapid approval of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797) by the U.S. House of Representatives.

This landmark legislation would establish nationwide protection for unborn children beginning at 20 weeks fetal age, based on congressional affirmations that by that point, if not earlier, the babies are capable of experiencing pain during abortions. A former abortionist recently testified before a congressional panel about the pain babies suffer during abortions. To view his compelling testimony, click here.

A House subcommittee approved the bill on June 4 on a party-line vote of 6 to 4.  The 40-member House Judiciary Committee could vote on the bill before mid-June, and action by the full House of Representatives could occur at any time thereafter.

However, success is not guaranteed!  Organizations representing the abortion industry and pro-abortion advocacy groups are already marshaling their great financial resources to try to prevent the House from approving this bill.   The mainstream news media will surely downplay the violent details of late abortions, and distort the provisions of the bill. But these factors can be countered by grassroots pro-life Americans communicating directly with their representatives in the House.  NRLC urges all pro-life Americans to click here to contact your representative in the U.S. House.  Urge him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 1797 immediately, and to support the bill against all attempts to delay, weaken, or defeat it.
