Dear Friend of CatholicVote,
Your pressure on the Senate is paying off.
Members of CV have been clamoring for a vote to stop unborn child pain.
We want to know where our Senators stand: do they oppose abortions after 20 weeks or not?
Known as H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would ban most abortions after 20 weeks, when science and medicine acknowledge that unborn children feel pain.
A ban on abortions after 20 weeks is very popular with the American public. A YouGov poll commissioned by the Huffington Post last week found that a combined 59% of Americans somewhat or strongly favor a ban on abortions after 20 weeks.
The U.S. House passed the bill in June. And just last week the State of Texas approved a similar bill.
Now it’s time for the Senate to act!
Harry Reid, leader of the Senate Democrats said last Sunday that he’s open to allowing a vote on it.
So it’s our job to make sure he follows through.
Here are three things you can do today:
We need to keep the heat on the Senate. If they refuse to vote, they need to be voted out.
