The March for Life may be over, but the momentum has carried on right into the U.S. Capitol, where two men are doing their part to put feet to the prayers of millions of American seeking to restore the right to life in our nation. Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) is kicking things off with a push to ban D.C. abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, when it’s widely known that babies can feel pain. “It will emphasize the humanity of the child and the inhumanity of what is being done to them,” Rep. Franks told the Washington Post. As chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee that handles the District, he is all but guaranteed a vote on the House floor. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has filed the Ultrasound Informed Consent Act, which, like Texas’s law, requires doctors to perform an ultrasound and describe the baby’s development before a woman consents to abort. So far, the measure has 44 co-sponsors. Encourage your member to become one of them. Contact your representatives and ask them to support the Franks and Jordan bills.
