Even with a hostile Administration, it is essential to introduce and pass pro-life legislation at the federal level when we have the support to do so. Right now, there are important bills that have been introduced and which enjoy the support of a majority of the American people.

We urge you to click on the links below to learn about this legislation, and then to let your Representatives and Senators know that you want these measures passed!

Besides communicating with your elected officials, be sure to also inform your pastors, families, Church groups, Facebook friends, and others you can reach about these bills.
