Sign on to letters urging Democratic Senators to vote for S. 1922, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act!

January 9, 2018

Dear Friends,

As you know, we have an historic opportunity to save babies in the womb who have reached the halfway point of their mothers’ pregnancies. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has already been passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate will take up the bill this month.

At Priests for Life, we have identified 10 Democratic Senators who represent states carried by President Trump in 2016. If these Senators keep to their pro-abortion party line, they are strongly at odds with the position of the President and most of their fellow citizens, especially on late-term abortion. But since they are going to ask the same people who voted for President Trump last year to vote for them next year, they may be willing to reconsider their position on this Pain-Capable bill.

We have to increase the pressure on them, and educate the public about the realities of late-term abortion.

Therefore we are urging citizens to write letters to these Senators, urging them to let the public know their position on this life-saving bill, and letting them know that the way they vote on this bill will have an impact on their chances of re-election.

The 10 states are: Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

We have prepared letters to all of these Senators, and we are asking you to sign on.

It is imperative that we let them know that WE WILL BE WATCHING!

When Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced the bill in the Senate in October, he said:

“I don’t believe abortion, five months into pregnancy, makes us a better nation. America is at her best when she’s standing up for the least among us, and the sooner we pass this legislation into law, the better. We are on the right side of history.”

This bill cuts in half the time during pregnancy in which an abortion can be performed legally. The bill will save thousands of lives and remove our nation from a list of just seven countries in the world that allow the abortion of babies at 20 weeks or later. It will save babies, most of whom are able to survive outside the womb and some who are only days away, from the brutality of a dismemberment abortion.

Please click here to read the letters to the Senators and to sign on to them!

With the bill expected to be taken up this month, there is no time to delay. The media is already reporting that the bill likely won’t pass because of the GOP’s narrow majority. That’s why putting these Democratic Senators on notice is vitally important!

We need their votes – AND THEY NEED OURS!


(If you have already signed on to the letter there is no need to sign again but please pass this on to others.)

So please act today, and please pass along this email to as many others you know who may be interested.

And thank you for being part of the Priests for Life Family!
