Since the return of Congress from its summer recess three weeks ago, the House of Representatives has already held committee investigations of abortion practices and has passed profile bills to defund Planned Parenthood and extend federal protection to babies who are born alive during abortions.
This week the action turns to the U.S. Senate, which will debate and vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36) on Tuesday.
This legislation would ban abortion nationwide after 20 weeks fetal age, based on the recognition that at this point in development, if not earlier, the unborn child is capable of experiencing pain during an abortion.
H.R. 36 already passed the House of Representatives on May 13 by a vote of 242-184.
Your voice is needed to urge the Senators who represent us in New York, Chuck Schumer and Kristin Gillibrand to vote FOR this bill. We will provide contact links soon.
