Take Action Today to End Late Term Abortions

Dear Brother Knight,
 
Your immediate action is needed to support national legislation that would strengthen the culture of life in the United States.
 
On Tuesday, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  This life-saving legislation would ban abortions at the point when scientists agree unborn children begin to feel pain in the womb (approximately 20 weeks).  
 
Earlier this year, our Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll found that 59% of Americans support this type of ban on abortion, including a majority who consider themselves pro-choice!
 
At our most recent Supreme Convention in St. Louis, we resolved “to speak out to our elected representatives about the need to enact legislation protecting human life in all its stages.”  I urge you to contact your Member of Congress today and express your support for H.R. 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
 
You can do this easily by visiting our Action Alert Center to email your Congressman.  You can also look up your Congressman’s phone number and call their offices in Washington directly (just enter your zip code on the top right corner to look up your Congressman’s information).
 
Thank you for your attention to this important matter and for helping to build a culture of life.
 
Fraternally,
Carl Anderson
Supreme Knight
