HELP US PUSH HARRY REID
TO PROTECT CHILDREN
I need you to help me awaken a man to his moral responsibility. I need you to call his office.
This man serves in the US Senate, and his name is Harry Reid. From Nevada, this Senator is currently the Majority Leader.
What this means, for all practical purposes, is that either he can push for or block a vote of the Senators on a particular matter.
And right now there is a matter of great importance that has been introduced in the Senate but that, in all likelihood, Mr. Reid -- and many of the pro-abortion Senators -- will not want a vote on.
It is a matter I've written to you about before, namely, the
Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
This piece of legislation would protect children in the womb from 20 weeks of development forward.
Why 20 weeks?
Because, given the fact that such babies can feel pain by that time, and that most of the public favors protecting such children from abortion, a majority of lawmakers are now ready to pass such a bill!
And in fact they have passed it in ten states and even in the US House of Representatives!
Of course, we are determined to protect every baby and stop ALL abortion.
And we reach that goal step by step, by protecting now the babies that we are able to protect through legislation that we have enough support to enact. After all, they are persons, they deserve protection now, and the fact that others aren't protected yet doesn't mean they shouldn't be.
Now, this bill has been introduced in the United States Senate, and the next step in this effort is to get the Senate to vote on it.
Does this mean it will pass in the current Senate? No. But this means the debate moves forward, the Senators are put on record regarding their position (and this can be significant in the upcoming elections), and those who are for late-term abortion are put on the defensive.
In short, I firmly 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, and is the next chapter in our ongoing battle to end abortion.
Please make a phone call today to Senator Harry Reid and urge him to call for a vote on this bill. I will give you information below as to how best to do that.
The Senate bill is called S. 1670, introduced by Senator Lindsey Graham (R.-SC).
This bill is a nightmare for the abortion industry. Not only do they not want to see it passed, but they don't even want it discussed.
Imagine the anxiety caused to the abortion business when people start talking about the pain the child feels when her arms and legs are torn off by the abortionist who is paid to do so!
We can stop this painful dismemberment of children through this Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
This is, of course, the humane thing to do. But to vote for it will put many Senators in trouble with their friends in the abortion industry.
At the same time, to vote against it will put them on the wrong side of many voters in their state.
So, they think, the way out of this dilemma is not to have a vote at all!
In that way, they are not on record regarding where they stand on the painful dismemberment of children in the womb.
And Senator Reid may be all too willing to accommodate his friends and help them out of that dilemma -- unless he hears from you!

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