Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act on the Floor today!

TAKE ACTION!

From Eagle Forum Capitol Hill Office, June 18, 2013

The House of Representatives is scheduled to consider H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act TODAY. This bill is a nationwide ban on abortions after 20 weeks.

A Gallup poll from last December shows that 64% of Americans, though divided on Roe v. Wade, support limits on abortion to some degree. In the wake of the recent conviction of Philadelphia late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was found guilty of first-degree murder in the case of three babies born alive in his clinic, we are seeing these numbers climb as people become more educated.

Kermit Gosnell killed these babies, born alive, through a procedure he called “snipping”— a method of cutting the spinal cord that was reportedly done routinely in his clinic.  During the trial, Washington Examiner columnist Timothy Carney asked Tracy Weitz, an  associate professor at the University of California, “What is the distinction between what [Gosnell] did, and what a late-term abortionist like, say, LeRoy Carhart does?”  The professor replied, “When a procedure that usually involves the collapsing of the skull is done, it’s usually done when the fetus is still in the uterus, not when the fetus has been delivered.”

This candid answer demonstrates why H.R. 1797 is necessary. The painful process of killing an unborn child after 20 weeks happens all too often in the U.S. — and the only reason it is legal is because the child is in utero.

TAKE ACTION!

Call and e-mail your Representative and urge them to vote YES on H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. We must continue to educate on the horrors of abortion!
