On Wednesday, May 13, the U.S. House of Representatives will take up a landmark pro-life bill that, if enacted, will save thousands of unborn children each year from a painful death.
The bill, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would protect unborn children from abortion, beginning at 20 weeks – nationwide. By this point in development (and indeed even earlier), the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain during an abortion. This federal bill was developed on the basis of model legislation developed by National Right to Life, which has been enacted so far in 11 states.
Please email, call, or write to Nita Lowey, who represents Rockland in the House of Representatives. Ask her to please vote for H.R. 36, Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
You can briefly cite one of the reasons from “Fetal Pain: The Evidence,” from the Doctors on Fetal Pain website.
