This is a historic moment.
I am so excited to tell you that yesterday I stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as he introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the U.S. Senate.
I say this with humble gratitude to YOU.
As you know, the entire SBA List community and pro-life movement has been working towards this moment for months, urging Senators to introduce this groundbreaking bill which would save 15,000 children per year from a painful death beginning at 20 weeks.
The very first step of the process – getting the bill introduced in the Senate, is done. Remember, it has already passed the House of Representatives.
Steps two, three, and four are this:
Pro-life Friend, I can’t do this without you – are you with me?
Make a gift right now of $10, $35, $75, or even $100 or more so we can launch a nationwide grassroots and media campaign for this legislation, gather as many co-sponsors as possible, and force a vote in the U.S. Senate.
Just on my cab ride back to the office yesterday, I read emails sent out by Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and EMILY’s List all urging their members to donate to them so that they can bring down this legislation… and quickly.
Why?They’re scared of it.
They’ve seen the polls – they know how popular this legislation is, especially among women, young people, and independents.
They know they need to fund a smear campaign, and they need to do it right now.
The pro-abortion lobby understands the power of this bill because they very much remember the passage of the partial-birth abortion ban, which was signed into law 10 years ago this very week.
They know that in addition to saving lives, the ban on partial-birth abortion changed hearts.
We know – and they know – this bill has the very same potential to put another major dent into Roe v. Wade and bring even more Americans to our side.
And so they want to stop it before it gets even more traction.
Please, Pro-life Friend, chip in whatever you can to help us stay one step ahead from the pro-abortion lobby as they work to kill this bill which they know will change hearts and save lives if passed.
This is a historic moment. I believe that future decades will mark this day as one when America lived up to its greatness and charted a new course – a course for life, for women and children, and for hope.
I am so glad that you are a part of it.
