Urge members of the House and Senate to support the
Pain-Capable Bill

February 17, 2021

Dear Friends,

Two medical professionals – one of whom supports abortion - published a paper last year that said babies in the womb likely feel pain as early as 12 weeks, and certainly by 18 weeks. Abortions during this second-trimester window are not uncommon and typically involve removing the fully alive, pain-capable human from the womb limb by limb and piece by piece.

We have no right to call ourselves a civilized or just society if we allow this to take place. And it is taking place, every day of every week of every year.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has been introduced multiple times in Congress. This bill would protect babies from abortion at 20 weeks, halfway through pregnancy.

The Republicans have consistently supported this legislation. The Democrats have consistently opposed it.

This is disgraceful.

Let’s do everything we can to support this bill now in the 117th Congress and to expose the extremism of the Democrats to all the voters we can reach.

Last month, Republican Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Rick Scott of Florida introduced the bill in the Senate. This week, Republican Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey, leader of the Pro-Life Caucus, introduced it in the House.

What I’m asking you to do is call both of your senators and your member of the House – even if they are Democrats – and tell them that you support the bill and you want them to as well.

We have a federal law to ensure that cattle are killed in the most painless ways possible. We also have a standard medical protocol now of using painkillers for babies when surgery is done on them in the womb.

So a bill like this makes perfect sense.

The point is not that abortion is less wrong if there were no pain. It’s that the reality of the pain will wake more people up to the immorality of abortion. Perhaps that will include some lawmakers.

Dismemberment abortion is not something that happens rarely or only in the most dire circumstances. This kind of carnage goes on every day.

Will you do what you can to help stop it?

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