Today, on the day of the 42nd March for Life, the Republican party choked, and pulled out of a vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This bill would ban abortions of children after 20 weeks of gestation. Currently, late term abortions are illegal in every nation of the world except for the US, China, North Korea and Canada.
The Republicans are abandoning this bill because of two Republican congresswomen who claim that passing it would lose the party votes.
Please write to these women, and/or your own representatives and explain to them how disgusted you are with their refusal to support legislation that will give American children the same right to life they'd have in almost any other nation in the world. You can find them at http://www.house.gov/
