USCCB Call to Action: Urge The Senate To Stop Infanticide!

February 6, 2019 by Jeff Caruso

Please take action!


Your voice is needed to protect babies who are born alive after an abortion.  The U.S. Senate could vote as soon as this week on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311).

Please contact your Senators immediately and urge them to co-sponsor and vote for S. 311 and to ask Senate leadership to schedule a floor vote on the bill this week.

Today, states are not just expanding abortion but allowing infanticide as well. New York passed a drastic law that eliminated protections for babies who survive an abortion attempt. And here in Virginia, a similarly extreme bill was introduced and defeated, followed by deeply disturbing comments made by the Governor. Please read bishops’ statements on the Virginia legislation and the Governor’s comments here.
