Planned Parenthood declares war against pro-life bill
January 21, 2015
There is a powerful movement in the United States House of Representatives to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R. 36. Tomorrow, the House of Representatives is expected to take up this tremendous opportunity to save the lives of thousands of unborn babies every year.
H.R. 36 prohibits an abortion from being performed if the probable post-fertilization age of the unborn child is 20 weeks or greater - unless the mother's life is in danger, or rape or incest was committed against a minor and reported to law enforcement.
But the bill's passage is greatly threatened by a stealth war being waged by Planned Parenthood! Planned Parenthood's leadership warned that the Republican-led Congress has the wrong priorities (by acting to protect the lives of the unborn). The public relations battle is already underway by PPH with the threat that passage of the bill will re-ignite the so-called "war on women" into the 2016 elections.
Aborting almost 328,000 unborn babies in the year reported in their 2013-2014 Annual Report, Planned Parenthood knows that any abortion-restricting measure will cut into their operating revenue.
Now is the time to pass this bill! With a Republican-led Congress, 60% of Americans believe that now is the perfect time to enact these life-saving measures.
The bill's primary sponsor, Congressman Trent Franks, said this of the breakthrough pro-life initiative ...
"More than 18,000 'very late term' abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America. These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but who can survive outside of the womb in most cases, and who are torturously killed without even basic anesthesia. Many of them cry and scream as they die, but because it is amniotic fluid going over their vocal cords instead of air, we don't hear them.
Late term Abortion in America has its defenders, but no true or principled defense. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act seeks to afford basic protection to mothers and their unborn children entering the sixth month of gestation."
