Support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act‏



From Pennsylvania Catholic Conference

Hundreds of thousands of Americans will participate in the March for Life this week in Washington, DC. You can take your own stand for the dignity of life by sending a message in support of H.R. 36, important pro-life legislation.

In a January 20 letter to Congress, Cardinal Seán O'Malley, chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities, urged support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36).

The conviction in 2013 of Philadelphia's Dr. Kermit Gosnell for crimes committed while providing abortions has "led many Americans to realize that our permissive laws and attitudes have allowed the abortion industry to undertake these procedures." People are repulsed "by the callous and barbarous treatment of women and children in Gosnell's clinic, and in other clinics that abort children after 20 weeks."

These procedures also pose serious dangers to women, "as evidenced by Gosnell's own manslaughter conviction for one woman's death, and news about the death or serious complications of other women undergoing such procedures."

Join those participating in this week's March for Life today by standing up for the dignity of all human life. Send a message in support of H.R. 36 today.
