The following came to Cal Catholic in a Nov. 1 email.
To: United States Senate
We the undersigned encourage the Senate to allow a vote on and to pass the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” when Senator Lindsey Graham introduces it this November.
It is a reasonable measure to restrict abortion at a period of an unborn baby’s life when they are, as shown by science, capable of feeling excruciating pain.
Polls have showed that a majority of Americans, including a majority of women and many abortion rights supporters, are against these late term abortions. *
We demand that when the bill is introduced, that the Senate committee send the bill to the full Senate for a vote. We ask Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to guide this legislation from the committee to the full Senate for a vote.
We believe that it is inexcusable, in the light the pain these babies feel and the broad public support for such bans, that such a Federal ban does not already exist.
Unborn babies will continue to be aborted after 20 week, and even one late term abortion is one too many, so we demand that this bill be passed immediately and not help up in committee by the influence of special interests groups like Planned Parenthood
* A recent Quinnipiac poll found that, if given a choice between a 20 week and 24 week ban, 60% of women would support a ban at 20 weeks versus 25% who would support a ban at 24 weeks.
