Today, two years after abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted of murdering babies born alive after botched abortions, the House of Representatives voted 242-184 to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Thank you for making this happen.
You gave voice to the voiceless.
You stood up for vulnerable unborn children against the lies and deception of the abortion industry.
But our work is not yet finished.
The abortion industry that profits from the murder of vulnerable unborn children continues to fight with distractions and lies.
But we continue to focus on the foundational issue. This is about stopping the dismemberment and destruction of viable lives capable of feeling pain.
That is what this bill does. It bans abortions after 20 weeks – when science has proven babies can feel pain. It considers the scientific facts before us and stands up for the basic philosophical principle that innocent lives deserve protection.
If our government cannot perform this simple function, what good can it do?
The Obama Administration is calling the bill “disgraceful.” It’s livid about this bill, perpetuating the distracting lies of the abortion industry.
That is why we must continue to fight and urge the Senate to take up this bill that is one of the most important pieces of pro-life legislation in years.
Join us in demanding a vote on this vital lifesaving legislation in the Senate.
Stand up for life. Speak up for the voiceless. Sign our petition to stop the pain and stop the abortions.
