Your Help is Needed to Fight D.C.'s Abortion-Until-Birth Policy!
In our nation's capitol, babies who can feel great pain are being brutally dismembered! It is legal for this atrocity to take place until the moment of birth in the District of Columbia because a local body called the "District Council" removed all restrictions on abortion.
Imagine! A District of Columbia abortion facility blatantly advertises dismemberment (D&E) abortions on request, to 26 weeks of pregnancy - the beginning of the 7th month. But abortions in D.C. may well be occurring even later because it is legal until birth and no reporting is required.
There is a mountain of scientific evidence that 26 weeks is far past the point at which the unborn baby will feel excruciating pain as the abortionist dismembers her.
Since January, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) (our parent organization) has been urging Congress to stop the abortions of pain-capable babies in our nation's capitol. Yesterday, the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives approved a bill conceived by NRLC called the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 3803) The bill will will ban abortions in the District of Columbia after 20 weeks fetal age, except to save a mother's life.
Well-funded pro-abortion organizations are carrying out a massive effort to, at a minimum, delay the full House of Representatives from voting on the bill. They know if they can delay the bill for even two weeks, it will die, because only two weeks remain before Congress goes into recess. The bill must pass the House before August 3 to have a chance of consideration by the Senate in September.
Immediate Action Needed
1. Telephone the office of your representative in the U.S. House to urge immediate action on this bill. National Right to Life has provided a link which will take you directly to an NRLC Call Alert. Enter your zip code, and you will see the name of your representative, the number to call and short "talking points". It takes just a few minutes and is easy to do. Here is the link. If this link does not work with your computer, just type in http://www.capwiz.com/nrlc/home in your web browser.
2. Send an email to your House representative urging immediate action on H.R. 3803. Make sure to include your mailing address because they only consider emails coming from their own constituents. Use the same link above to send an email. If this link does not work with your computer, just type in http://www.capwiz.com/nrlc/home in your web browser.
PLEASE ACT NOW!
UNBORN CHILDREN CANNOT SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.
WE MUST BE THEIR VOICE!
Planned Parenthood Tidbits
What has Planned Parenthood (PPFA) been up to lately? Quite intriguing.
1. Students for Life of America obtained a PP of New York City document with talking points on how to discuss abortion. It appears the underlying goal is to create confusion and a little bit of guilt. Readers are urged to “evoke empathy, emphasize personal decision making and accept ambivalence” when talking to friends. Another key point to win your friends over to the pro-choice side is to express relief that the person didn’t have an abortion. (Note: doesn’t this make abortion a bad thing?) Tips for Fielding Questions apparently suggest that you don’t really answer the question but mouth the usual soundbites about the greatness of Planned Parenthood.
2. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is giddy over the close relationship PP has had with the Obama administration. “I’ve been working with this administration for the last three years on getting women better health care access in a whole host of ways,” she says in a National Journal interview. Obamacare and its abortion funding components “is the single most important opportunity to expand women’s health care access in this country that we will ever see.” Of course, to PP, abortion is somehow health care.
In another development, former Planned Parenthood clinic director Sue Thayer has filed a lawsuit against Iowa’s PP claiming that PP engaged in “repeated false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible claims for reimbursements” to Medicaid. “During my last years working at Planned Parenthood, it became increasingly clear to me that not all of their policies and protocols were completely legal and ethical. After much thought, I contacted the Alliance Defending Freedom,” says Thayer. “I believe that it is an important piece in the nationwide effort to shed light on the darkness and deception surrounding America’s largest abortion provider — Planned Parenthood.”
Way to go Sue!!!
Obama Doubles Down on Denial of Religious Liberty
In spite of a crescendo of criticism and the alienation of many religious groups, President Obama is standing firm, firm, firm with his mandate which denies religious freedom to religious institutions by requiring them to provide services that violate their consciences.
In a recent interview with a television station, President Obama responded to questions from local viewers. The President was asked “What can you say about a healthcare bill that’ll mandate insurance companies to provide birth control, sterilization, etc. to employees of Catholic universities, hospitals and churches since this goes against the Catholic religion?” Undaunted, the President responded: “But we did say that big Catholic hospitals and universities that employ a lot of non-Catholics and who receive a lot of federal money — that for them to be in position to say to a woman who works there that you can’t get that from your insurance company even though the institution isn’t paying for it — that that crosses the line and the woman is going to have to bear the burden and pay the cost for that. That’s not fair.”
It’s not fair? What is fair about trampling on the precious freedom of religion guaranteed by the first amendment? One of our most treasured rights? It appears the President has no concept of how egregious and hated this mandate is.
Where Do the Presidential Candidates Stand on Life?
Where do the U.S. Senate candidates stand on life? This comparison sheet shows you the candidate's positions on abortion, taxpayer funding of abortion, keeping a minor girl's abortion secret from her parents, human cloning and whether health care workers who don't want to participate in abortion should be denied protections.
