USCCB Alert: Born-Alive Legislation Deserves a Vote in the People’s House

April 18, 2019 by Jeff Caruso

Please take action now!


The following alert has been issued by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Thank you to all who urged your U.S. representative to sign the discharge petition to force a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The good news is that 199 House Members have signed the petition. But we still need 19 more to sign it to force a vote on this life-saving legislation. 
Please TAKE ACTION NOW to urge your Member to sign the petition or to thank him or her for signing it.
MANY people are upset with the idea of babies being left alone to die after surviving an attempted abortion. If we make enough noise, this bill has a chance of being voted on in the House, and eventually becoming law.
On behalf of the Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, we wish you and your family a most blessed Holy Week and Easter season.
What you can do:  
  • Send a message today urging your representative to support the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act by signing the discharge petition and voting to pass the bill. Click here to send your message by email.
  • Share this alert widely! Paste this link into an email, and share our posts on Twitter or Facebook
Thank you for all you do to promote and defend the sacredness of human life!
