Advancing The Sanctity Of Human Life On Capitol Hill

An Act to Save Many Lives

Nov 20, 2019

Last month we asked you to pray for a hearing that was held on Capitol Hill to discuss the reasons why Congress must take action to protect babies that survive an abortion. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would provide the needed protection for these newborn babies, but right now legislators are blocking the bill from even being brought to the House floor for a vote.

However, there is a way for the Born-Alive Act to surpass this blockade. It is called a discharge petition. If a majority, or 218 House members, sign the discharge petition, it forces the bill to be brought to the House floor. So far, 203 members have signed a discharge petition for the Born-Alive Act. We only need 15 more House member signatures. Will you sign our petition to Congressional members who have not signed the discharge petition?

This bill would make medical care mandatory for babies that survive an abortion, which in turn, would criminalize the horrific practice -- that was recently revealed in court -- of Planned Parenthood harvesting baby body parts while the baby is still living!

Sandra Merritt and David Daleiden are the undercover journalists that brought to light the selling of baby body parts by Planned Parenthood. Here is an excerpt from a report of Liberty Counsel Chief Litigation Counsel Harry Mihet, Sandra Merritt’s lead attorney, describing what was revealed in court:

On the last day of our hearing, Dr. Theresa Deisher, Stanford PhD, testified about the lengths to which she must go as a cardiovascular researcher to make sure that the mice she studies do not suffer needless pain. If she were to cut the beating hearts out of those mice without anesthesia, she told the court, she would go to jail and face ethical charges.

She testified how horrified she was upon reading various studies involving baby human hearts procured from Planned Parenthood — and realizing that there was no way for those studies to have been done UNLESS THE HEARTS WERE STILL BEATING WHEN CUT OUT FROM THE ABORTED BABIES. Without anesthesia, of course.

This is horrifying! Essentially mice have more protections than babies! This must stop and Congress has the power to do just that.

Join us in urging key Congressional members to take a stand and add their name to the discharge petition so the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act can be brought to a House floor vote.

Many who oppose this measure to stop infanticide say a baby surviving an abortion is merely a hypothetical situation. But abortion survivors are very real and have shared their stories publicly. And as the Sandra Merritt trial has revealed, babies designated for abortion have been intentionally birthed alive so their organs could be harvested for profit!

This horrific information is critical as we meet with congressional members to educate them on the necessity of bills like the Born-Alive Act. And arriving at their offices with a petition full of names also shows our legislators how much citizen support life-affirming bills have.

Thank you for taking action on this matter by signing your name to our petition. In addition, we ask for your financial support. We are stationed on Capitol Hill to promote a culture of life by educating leaders who waver on life issues and we encourage and affirm those who are taking a bold stand for the voiceless. Friends of the National Pro-Life Center make this possible.

Thank you for your prayers and support.

For Life,

Peggy Nienaber, Vice-President
Mat Staver, Chairman
