A Deceptive Bill Voted on Tomorrow

Jul 20, 2022

Tomorrow, on July 21, the U.S. House will vote on a deceptively named bill that will force abortion-inducing drugs and devices on the states and private employers. This is Obamacare by another name.

This is just one of the many abortion bills swirling in Congress. These bills are significantly more radical than Roe v. Wade. Some members in Congress are desperate to return America to the bloody reign where states are forced to allow abortion. Just one of these bills could erase all efforts to protect human life!

Make your voice heard today without delay. Fax as many people in Congress as possible with your urgent demands to STOP THE ABORTION BILLS and let these children live. — Mat

HR 8373 is mislabeled the “Right to Contraception Act,” but it specifically includes “emergency contraceptives,” abortion-inducing drugs and devices. This is up for a vote tomorrow.

The Act includes “any device or medication used to prevent pregnancy,” which is code language from the FDA that redefined “contraceptives” under Obamacare to include abortifacient medications and devices. These can include IUDs as well as “morning after” pills like “Plan B” and “My Choice.”

Nearly half of all abortions in America are chemical abortions, and the language in this bill also opens the door for RU-486, the abortion pill.

Drugs currently on the market have been used to kill children as old as 4 months’ gestation. At this age, the child can move his or her eyes, suck their thumb and even respond to light while their eyelids are closed!

Democrats on Capitol Hill are working overtime to destroy life. In addition to this new bill in the House, the Senate already has about five radical abortion bills that can be taken up for vote at any time. State governors are also under intense pressure from the prenatal genocide crowd.

Please fax key legislators and governors urging them to Protect Life and End Abortion.

Yesterday, at least 17 legislators were arrested outside the Capitol for illegally blocking traffic during their abortion protests. The culture of death has been unmasked and is desperate to continue prenatal genocide!

Meanwhile, inside the Capitol—a Democrat-led House subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations spewed forth more abortion propaganda.

In-your-face disruptive abortion advocates are putting intense pressure on members of Congress and state governors. Do not underestimate their anger. Remember, one tried to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh.

Democrats (and two Republicans) are frantically working to force abortion on all of the states. They must hear from you now!

Chemical abortions are not safe. While they intend to kill the child, sometimes they also injure or kill the mother. The FDA admitted it found that women have died in connection to Mifeprex (RU-486) or mifepristone-induced chemical abortions. And one study found that after taking one of these or similar abortion-inducing drugs, 43% sought additional care.

Even one death is heartbreaking. However—for political reasons—the FDA has made another drug, the Plan B morning after pill, available over the counter.

Complications from the “morning after” pill include:

  • 1 in 3 develop ovarian cysts. These can rupture, causing intense bleeding and requiring emergency surgery. In some cases, the doctor will completely remove the affected ovary.

  • 2 in 3 women have irregular bleeding.

  • 22% have prolonged menstrual bleeding.

  • 1 in 5 develop vaginitis, which may result in complications during future pregnancies.

These are serious, life-altering side effects! In reality, abortion advocates and some members of Congress only care about killing the child and have no concern about women. It is time to end prenatal murder in America. Tell Congress to block any laws pushing abortion.

On Capitol Hill, several Democrats and two Republicans have developed new legislation to force abortion on the states. These bills go far beyond the Roe and Casey decisions and would even protect the horrific “partial birth” procedure.

Partial birth abortion is the evil practice of pulling the legs and body of a fully developed and ready-to-be-born baby, leaving only the child’s head in the mother’s birth canal. A spike is used to puncture the baby’s skull, and the brains are sucked out while the baby is still alive!

And these bills are just two votes from passing!

We must fight to protect the lives of these precious children. Send faxes right away to block these bills and give children a chance to grow, laugh, play and learn. And encourage the governors to Protect Life and End Abortion.

LC Action’s team has been praying for and working toward this day for decades. But THE WORK HAS NOW INTENSIFIED. This battle is coming full throttle to Congress and the states, with an intensity never before seen.
