Also the U.S. House of Representatives will vote this week on H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This important measure will ban abortions on unborn children aged 20 weeks or older, based upon substantial medical evidence that these unborn children can experience pain. With H.R. 36, Congress will exercise its authority to protect these vulnerable pre-born children. However, while a vote has been scheduled for later this week, successful passage of H.R. 36 is not assured. H.R. 36 needs your personal support. Please contact your elected congressional representatives today by clicking here. Ask them to support H.R. 36 with their vote, and encourage your family, friends, fellow parishioners, and Brother Knights to get involved and actively support this legislation. At the 132nd Supreme Convention in Orlando, we resolved to “speak out to our elected representatives about the need to enact legislation…to protect human life.” With the upcoming vote on H.R. 36, it is critical that Congress hears your voice. Please make every effort to participate.
