As you know by now, Senator Lindsey Graham introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for consideration in the Senate on Thursday. I have already asked you several times to bring this bill to the floor and ask again that you work towards its passage. Senator, what do we gain as a nation if we allow our unborn children to be slaughtered by the millions? What possible justification could you or any of your colleagues have for not supporting a bill that will save the lives of at least 15,000 unborn American children every year?
Senator Reid, at 20 weeks gestation a baby can feel pain. At 20 weeks gestation a baby is a living human being that has been alive for 20 weeks. At 20 weeks old a baby can feel the abortionist rip it apart while killing it. No human being should be subjected to this indignity or brutality. No innocent child deserves to die in such a barbaric manner. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will prevent this from ever happening to another innocent child. So, once again, why would anyone want to vote against this bill?
Favorability ratings for both Houses of Congress currently place you below head lice, cockroaches, and colonoscopies. Since the only people you can piss off any worse than you already have are the pro-abortion lobby, why not stand up and do the right thing for a change? Senator Reid, with your endorsement this bill can pass the Senate, then President Obama can explain to the American people why he feels he should veto a bill whose sole purpose is to save the lives of innocent children.
The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a small step towards ending abortion in America, but a very important step. America’s abortion mills will kill over 1.2 million children this year. The 15,000 children this bill will save may not sound like a big number to you until you put it in perspective. If 15,000 children were murdered in their schools this year would you take steps to end the killing?
Senator Reid, it’s easy in life to go along to get along. Taking a principled stand for a cause worth losing everything for is a little harder. The lives of America’s children are worth fighting for and worth risking everything for; even if that means you don’t get reelected. Senator, if you kill this bill you are enabling the killing of thousands of children. I beg you to put politics aside and do what you know in your heart is right. Pass the bill, override the President’s veto, and save our children.
