Senator Mitch McConnell
317 Russell Senate Office Building

When a man makes a promise, he is honor bound to keep it. When you became the Senate Majority Leader you promised to bring the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to the floor for a vote and to pass it. Now’s your chance. The House has done its part, and now it’s up to you. Senator McConnell, this bill will save about 20,000 innocent children every year, and every day we allow the barbaric practice of dismemberment abortion to continue, hundreds more will die.
Empty promises and inaction seem to be the modus operandi in Washington these days. Passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is too important to be treated as business as usual with backroom deals and lobbyists calling in favors. President Obama has signaled his intention to veto this bill if it makes it to his desk. Make him veto it. Make him explain to the American public why he thinks the slaughter of pain-capable babies should be legal in the greatest country on earth.
Senator McConnell, over 1 million unborn children are killed in America’s abortion mills every year. Some people may think that the 20,000 children this bill will save every year is just a drop in the bucket. I contend that every life is priceless and that every chance to save even 1 life must be pursued to its fullest.
Sir, this is where the rubber meets the road. You made a promise and now it’s time to keep it. You can pass a bill that will save thousands of children or you can look the other way and hope that no one is watching. Whatever you choose to do, the killing won’t stop until men and women of good will do what it takes to stop it. Passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is just 1 step, but a very important step, towards ending abortion.
Time is of the essence. Pain-capable children are being killed every day by dismemberment abortion, and will continue to be killed until you and your colleagues take action. Getting this bill to the President’s desk and overriding his promised veto will be a daunting effort. Nobody said it would be easy. Nothing this important ever is. If you and your colleagues aren’t up to the task, have the intellectual honesty to say so, and I’ll find another way.
Senator McConnell, America is watching and innocent children are being killed by the thousands. What will you do?
