Success! This bill has passed the House of Representatives.
HELP PASS THE BILL
TO BAN ABORTION AFTER 20 WEEKS!
I wrote to you recently with an Action Alert regarding a bill in Congress to protect children in the womb starting at 20 weeks fetal age.
Now I write again regarding that bill, because
Action is expected on June 18 in the US House of Representatives
and we need to speak loudly in support of this bill!
I believe that the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" is the most significant piece of pro-life legislation to be introduced so far on the federal level.
Please make a phone call to encourage your Representative to support this bill.
We have every reason to expect that we can win this vote. For the House to pass this bill will send shock waves around the world, encouraging pro-life people and worrying abortion supporters.
News will circle the globe that the United States Congress has taken a step to stop abortions after the baby reaches 20 weeks.
This is a major step away from the unrestricted abortion policy of Roe vs. Wade and the out of control practices of the abortion industry!
And, of course, it is a major step toward ending all abortion.
Obviously, that is our ultimate goal, and we will reach it. But in order to stop a runaway train, you first have to slow it down. And this bill will do that.
The reason this bill draws the line at 20 weeks of fetal development is because 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.
The federal bill is H.R. 1797, introduced by Congressman Trent Franks.
You can help advance this legislation with a simple phone call.

And please forward this email to as many other people as you can!
