The latest undercover video taking viewers behind the scenes at Planned Parenthood was released this week. As with the previous videos, this one is a glimpse into a world most Americans would rather ignore; a place where abortions are sold, preborn babies are killed and their body parts are harvested for research, allegedly for profit.
If your heart is broken by these videos and you want to do something to help stop abortion, here’s an opportunity to act:
There’s a major pro-life vote scheduled to take place in the U.S. Senate tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 22. This bill, the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 36), has already passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
If passed, this bill would reduce the number of abortions in the U.S. and deliver Roe v. Wade a major legal blow.
Our Thriving Values social issues team has put together a wonderful web page describing this bill in more detail, but here’s the short of it: this bill would prohibit abortions beginning at 20 weeks after fertilization, except for limited circumstances.
As pro-lifers, it’s important we support each and every effort to protect the lives of children in the womb. That’s why I’m asking you to please call your two senators and ask them to vote in favor of the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (HR. 36). You can use our Thriving Values Action Center or call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
Note: Another practical way you can support preborn life – as well as women who are facing an unexpected pregnancy – is to join me at the Evangelicals for Life Conference (#EFL2016) co-hosted by Focus on the Family and The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC). The event will take place on Jan. 21 and 22 in conjunction with the March for Life event in Washington, D.C. Livestreaming is also available. Learn more at evangelicals.life/.
