An unborn child is ripped limb from limb – their skull is crushed – as the baby is painfully and gruesomely slaughtered inside his or her mother’s womb.

184 Members of Congress voted in favor of this heinous act.  They voted to give the most abominable form of excruciating death the color of law.  They voted for death.  You need to know who they are.

It’s a late-term abortion.  Only four nations in the world allow such a barbaric procedure.  China (which mandates abortions with a one-child policy).  North Korea (which summarily executes any and everyone at the will of its Dear Leader).  And the United States of America. (The fourth is Canada, but something tells me our neighbors to the north follow our lead.)  That’s the company we keep in this deadly degradation of human rights.

In fact, there are only seven nations that allow unrestricted abortions after 20 weeks gestation: China, North Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Netherlands, Canada, and the United States.

It’s appalling to our sense of humanity, but it’s given the protection of law.

Thankfully, last month, an overwhelming bipartisan majority of Congress voted to end this practice.  They voted to ban late-term abortions.  As the bill – the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – itself details, science has proven that babies after 20 weeks gestation feel pain.

Yet, 184 U.S. Representatives, elected by their constituents, voted against this bill.  They voted to continue to allow babies to be painfully and barbarically slaughtered.

Did your Representative?

Those who voted for this despicable death must be held accountable to the people for their actions.

Today, this bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate.  When it comes up for a vote, and it must, every member of the Senate will be held to account.  We’ll publish the name of every Senator who opposes life and supports the most gruesome form of death imaginable. Ever member, regardless of whether he or she claims to be “pro-life,” will be put on record.
