Today, Congress votes to protect abortion survivors in a major reversal. We’re taking urgent action! The following email was sent from Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel.
“It was one of the evilest bills we’ve ever seen. Today is a critical deadline to DEFEAT it.
One state passed a law that could allow babies to be killed up to 28 days AFTER birth. By using the word “perinatal” (which is the period that includes up to a month after a baby is born) instead of “prenatal” (before birth), the law literally legalizes infanticide.
We warned of the absolute horrors this Planned Parenthood-sponsored bill would unleash. Now, as new legislative sessions open, other states WILL ATTEMPT TO LEGALIZE infanticide.
We’ve taken action, not only filing FOIAs against California Governor Newsom over this first-in-the-nation barbaric bill, but we’ve been aggressively fighting on Capitol Hill.
TODAY, pro-life Members of Congress have scheduled a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. For years, Pelosi did Planned Parenthood’s bidding and blocked the vote, BUT NOT TODAY.
This bill would REQUIRE doctors to administer lifesaving medical care to any baby who is born, including abortion survivors. But we urgently need you to take action with us BEFORE today’s vote.
