from Steve Stockman
United States Congressman
The Pain Capable Abortion ban just passed the U.S. House of Representatives last week. Now the fight will continue in the U.S. Senate where it is sure to face intense opposition from the abortion lobby. Please read my message below for more information about what's at stake.
But if Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama get their way, it will remain perfectly legal to kill babies right up until the moment of birth.
Now I’m hoping that you will sign the petition in favor of the Pain Capable Abortion Ban to your two United States Senators which I'll link to in a moment.
You see, America was appalled when they got a glimpse into the true horrors of the abortion industry when Kermit Gosnell was convicted for doing virtually the same thing that other abortionists do on a routine basis. The difference? A few seconds.
Gosnell waited until babies were delivered before he killed them, instead of "legally" doing it inside the womb.
That's why it is so urgent you sign the petition to your two United States Senators.
After the horrors of the Gosnell case, you'd think that ending late-term abortions of fully developed unborn babies would be a no-brainer -- especially since the abortion movement worked so hard to distance itself from him. Not so. Nancy Pelosi even went so far to defend it by declaring the so-called "right" to a late-term abortion "sacred ground."
You see, the abortion lobby is so radical, that they can't even stomach abortion restrictions on fully formed viable babies at the late date of FIVE MONTHS. At five months, an unborn baby has all of his or her organs. They can -- and have -- survived outside of the womb.
So it's time to make politicians who condone this slaughter go on record and pay politically for their radical support of abortion-on-demand.
That's why I'm hoping you'll sign your name to this petition right away.
You see, full-scale, public debate in the United States Senate over the Pain Capable Abortion Ban will again demonstrate to the nation the true horror of abortion. And it will expose the radical nature of the pro-abortion politicians.
When radical pro-abortion Senators attempt to filibuster the Pain Capable Abortion Ban in the Senate -- as I'm sure they will -- the entire nation will see graphically what you and I already know:
- That a baby at 20 weeks or more of gestation feels intense pain.
- That a 20 week abortion is an operation which brutally dismembers a fully formed child, piece by piece.
- That the abortion movement not only thinks these brutal abortions are a constitutional right -- they believe you should be forced to pay for them.
As a result of the efforts of the National Pro-Life Alliance members and other pro-lifers who cranked up the issue debate, politicians like Senators Mary Landrieu, Mark Udall and dozens of pro-abortion politicians in Congress have seen their careers abruptly halted.
And looking ahead, there is a rich target list of Senators who voted radically pro-abortion in the past and face tough elections the next two cycles.
By turning up the heat through a massive, national grassroots campaign in this session of Congress, one of two things will happen:
If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can break the filibuster and win passage of the bill, to ban a barbaric practice that claims the lives of thousands of children every year.
But even if the bill does not immediately pass, the public attention and subsequent outcry will send another crew of radical abortionists down to defeat the next time they face the voters.
And then we'll have enough votes to pass other important reforms like requiring ultrasounds, the Parental Notification and Intervention Act, and ultimately a Life at Conception Act to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Either way, the unborn win . . . unless you do nothing.
That's why you and other pro-life activists must bombard members of the Senate with petitions, postcards, calls and letters.
And the first thing you must do is to sign your petition.
They are the key ingredient in the National Pro-Life Alliance's plan to pass the Ban on Pain Capable Abortion.
Your National Pro-Life Alliance can't match the millions of tax dollars Planned Parenthood is spending to lobby for abortion-on-demand.
But with your petition and chip in contribution of $10 or $20, we can generate enough heat in the right places to, for the first time in history, pass a bill to END and not just regulate a whole class of abortions.
But it's urgent you act now.
Thousands of babies die in this gruesome procedure every year -- just a few inches away from a live birth.
