Great News in Our Fight to Save Lives

by | Mar 1, 2016

Dismemberment-SquarereAmidst the swirl of an election campaign, we might forget that a lot of important work is happening to save babies’ lives.

And those babies need your help!

First, some great news:

The West Virginia House and Senate just passed our newest landmark initiative, a ban on the barbaric practice of dismemberment abortions. Mississippi is expected to pass it next, and we are working to pass it elsewhere this year, adding to the two states that voted to ban dismemberment abortions last year.

With our help, state Senates in South Dakota, Ohio, and South Carolina have passed bans on abortions when an unborn baby is developed enough to feel pain – the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Now we’re working to get these bills passed in their respective state Houses and enacted into law.

With our help and leadership, 12 other states and the U.S. House have already passed this life-saving bill.

Oklahoma is expected to pass our innovative Humanity of the Unborn Child Act. It “hereby affirms that it is the public policy of the State of Oklahoma to make a value judgment favoring child birth over abortion.” It creates a state fund for an ongoing public education program about basic embryology, including prenatal development information. It also provides for the distribution of abortion prevention information and assistance, such as pregnancy help information.

The above laws are just the bans on abortion and innovative new laws of National Right to Life in the past year – there are many other bills regulating or restricting abortion that we are also working to pass. National Right to Life provided the model language to our state affiliates for each of these bills, and for several others that are being considered in the states.

But to pass these laws and save babies lives across the country, we need your help. We need it to continue building the grassroots network it takes to encourage state legislators to support our bills. We need to help our state Right to Life groups with lobbying and strategy to pass life-saving laws.

A gift of $100, $50 or any amount today will help us spread the word, advertise, and advocate for these laws that can save so many lives.

Please help us change the world for a single baby whose life we can save . . . and for generations more to come!

Carol Tobias,
