Easing the Pain
Yesterday, I mentioned efforts to repeal the President's signature legislation, Obamacare, and how doing so would protect you from paying for abortion. As early as tomorrow, the House Judiciary Committee led by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) will mark up another pro-life bill that shifts efforts from defense to offense. The "District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act", H.R. 3803, is supported by 210 cosponsors, including pro-life Democrats like Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.) because it would ban the gruesome practice of late term abortion in the District. The U.S. Constitution grants Congress authority over all District laws and since the city Council removed all abortion restrictions it is up to Congress to protect the unborn.
We need at least 218 cosponsors to show House Leadership a majority supports this bill and should bring it to the floor for a vote. Call your Representative to make sure they are a cosponsor.
