Good news!!!!There is a congressman who will introduce an amendment to HR 36.  We are asking that everyone who has a Republican House Rep to please contact them ( and ask them to co-sponsor the bill and if they are not willing to do that to vote present if the bill comes to the floor without the amendments.  Lake Countians, can you contact Dave Joyce and ask him to co-sponsor?  Explain that his prolife base in Lake County expects him to support the bill but NOT with the exceptions.  He needs to have the phone ringing off the hook. Here is his contact info:

Washington DC office: 202-225-5731

Painesville Office: 440-352-3939

Twinsburg: 330-425-9291

Cleveland Right to Life, Lake County Right to Life, Right to Life of North East Ohio and Geauga County Right to Life are urging the following action( you can see the bill here: HR 36 )


Cut and paste the following message to your U.S. congressman.   To find out contact information for your congressman, go here: Send this message IMMEDIATELY so there is time to remove the exceptions before next week's floor vote.


As the 114th Congress convenes, I want to urge you - as your constituent - to defend those who have no voice: unborn children.

H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, was re-introduced by Reps. Trent Franks and Marsha Blackburn.  This bill protects unborn babies after 20 weeks, or 5 months of pregnancy, based on the child's ability to feel pain. It also protects mothers from dangerous late-term abortions. However, there is a huge problem with this bill: 


It contains exceptions allowing abortions if the child was conceived by rape or incest!


A child conceived in rape or incest is a living human being and can feel pain just like a child conceived in other circumstances.  The circumstances of a child's conception should NOT condemn them to death.  The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has become hugely popular because MOST PRO-LIFE AMERICANS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE EXCEPTIONS IN THE LEGISLATION!   To make matters worse, this bill will come to a vote on January 22, when millions of pro-life advocates will be peacefully protesting in Washington at the March for Life.  To be pro-life means we advocate for the sanctity of ALL life from conception through natural death, no matter how that life was conceived. 

Passing a bill that includes exceptions dishonors life and is so unnecessary, especially now that we are blessed to have a majority of pro-life legislators in both the house and the senate.  There is no need to condemn children of rape or incest in a compromise to pass the bill.  PLEASE DEMAND THAT THESE EXCEPTIONS BE REMOVED BEFORE THIS BILL COMES TO THE FLOOR FOR A VOTE!!!! 



 Contact National Right to Life, the Susan B Anthony List and Priests for Life to urge them to withdraw support for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act until the rape and incest exceptions are removed.  These organizations rightly so supported this Act before the rape exceptions were added, but have not yet demanded that the rape and incest exceptions be removed.  With their help, we have a greater chance of getting the exceptions removed before the floor vote.

"It's A Matter of Life..." by Denver Sallee
When considering the worth of any  so-called "Pro-Life" legislation. We should evaluate whether it is morally consistent with Christian teaching . Jesus left the ninety-nine to save the one---a beautifully simple Truth. (Luke 15:3-7) Additionally, God's admonition found many times throughout the Holy Bible, "Thou shall not murder" is never followed by an asterisk. The meaning is unequivocal. There are no exceptions period. No amount of parsing can alter the Truth contained in Luke's example of the Lord's intention that we must protect the most vulnerable among us nor can it change the absolute nature of His Commandment.
