U.S. House votes Tuesday on late abortion ban — call today!
On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on a bill to protect unborn children nationwide during the last four months of pregnancy, when they are capable of experiencing excruciating pain as they are aborted. The bill is the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), based on a model bill written by the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) that has already been enacted in nine states. H.R. 1797 would extend the life-saving policy to the entire nation, protecting unborn children of 20 weeks fetal age or later.
This is the most important pro-life bill to be considered by the U.S. House since the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, which was enacted ten years ago.
Time is short — too short to depend on emails or letters. Instead, please immediately telephone the office of your representative in the U.S. House. Urge him or her to vote in favor of the ban on late abortions, H.R. 1797.
It’s easy, and just takes a few minutes. Click here, then insert your zip code into the “Call Now” box — you will be shown the phone number of your representative, along with suggested quick points you can make to the representative’s staff person during your call. If you get a busy signal or a recording, please keep trying.
You will also be given the option of sending a short email message to NRLC to report on the position of your representative, after your call. This is optional, but it will assist NRLC’s efforts to win passage of this bill.
