ON PROTECTING PAIN-CAPABLE UNBORN CHILDREN
WASHINGTON (November 12, 2013) — At a press conference on November 7, I joined U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in announcing introduction of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1670) in the U.S. Senate.
This bill would protect unborn children from abortion, nationwide, beginning at 20 weeks fetal age, based on scientific evidence that by this stage of development (if not earlier), the baby will experience excruciating pain when subjected to typical late abortion procedures. This is the most important single pro-life bill to be proposed in Congress since the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act was enacted ten years ago.

With strong backing from National Right to Life, a virtually identical bill (H.R. 1797) has already passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Now, it is time to demand that the U.S. Senate vote on this landmark legislation. But that won’t happen without your help. Continue reading

From the leaders of the national 40 Days for Life program:
Day 40! As another 40 Days for Life campaign comes to an end today, we look back at all the amazing blessings God has poured out in 306 locations in ten countries around the world.
These blessings include children that were scheduled to be aborted over these past 40 days … who are now alive because of your prayers and witness. I want to personally thank you for all of your sacrifices on behalf of those who are unable to speak for themselves.
