In June, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This bill would put a nationwide ban on abortion after 20 weeks (which is the beginning of the sixth month), based upon compelling medical evidence that these babies suffer excruciating pain during abortion. Nebraska was the first state to pass this type of legislation, which has now become a model for the nation! The bill has now been sent to the U.S. Senate. Please call U.S. Senator Deb Fischer. Ask her to sponsor the nationwide ban in the Senate. Senator Fischer is one of only two pro-life women in the U.S. Senate, and we need her active, visible support in order to advance this vital legislation! She voted for this same legislation when she was in the Nebraska Unicameral.
Please call her Washington office at 202-224-6551, and urge her to sponsor the national ban on abortion after 20 weeks. You may also call one of her district offices and leave the same message. Thank you!
