Success! This bill has passed the House of Representatives.
HELP US PROTECT CHILDREN
FROM THE PAIN OF ABORTION!
The most significant piece of federal legislation since Roe vs. Wade has been introduced in Congress, and I need you to urge your Representative to become a co-sponsor.
This bill would ban abortion nationwide once the unborn child reaches 20 weeks of development!
Obviously, our ultimate goal is to end all abortion, and we will. But in order to stop a runaway train, you first have to slow it down. And this bill will do that.
Please make a phone call to encourage your Representative to support this bill.
As I write this, there are meetings taking place in Congress to prepare the final version of this bill, H.R. 1797, introduced by Congressman Trent Franks. It is called the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" and it protects children from abortion after 20 weeks.
That is the point at which scientific research is strongest that the child is able to feel pain.
The same kind of legislation has already been passed in about ten states, and enjoys the support of a majority of Americans.
Moreover, when the same legislation was introduced in Congress to apply to the District of Columbia, it gained some 222 co-sponsors.
So this is a winning bill!
But your Representative needs to know that you support the extension of the bill to the entire nation!
And we need your Representative to co-sponsor the bill, if he or she has not done so already -- But I need you to act in the next day or two, because time is limited to gain co-sponsors!
At this point, you can help advance this legislation with a simple phone call.
So please click here for the information on how to make that phone call today,
and what to say.
And please forward this email to as many other people as you can!
