Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act introduced in the House













by Hon. Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List VP for Government Affairs

My message to the new Congress is clear:

It’s time to get to work to pass laws that save the lives of unborn children and protect vulnerable women.

And I’m happy to report that things are off to a GREAT start.

Today, on the very first day of the 114th Congress, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36) was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill is being sponsored by two of my closest friends in the House, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN). It seeks to protect precious unborn children after 20 weeks, or 5 months of pregnancy, based on their ability to feel excruciating pain. Remember, if this bill passes the House, the new pro-life Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised to bring it up for a Senate vote, unlike his predecessor Harry Reid, who blocked it.

I’ve been working closely with Congressmen Franks and Blackburn on advancing this bill in the new Congress, and I’ve told them both repeatedly that SBA List members across America have their backs. 

>>> So the very first thing I need you to do is to instantly email your Representative and ask them to co-sponsor the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

You see, your SBA List does not exist solely to elect pro-life politicians to office. That’s only the beginning. 

We work to capitalize on our election victories by translating them into legislative victories. Put simply, we work for – and demand – a “return on investment.” When we help elect pro-lifers to Congress we expect them to advance legislation to save babies and their moms from abortion.

Because of the hard work of SBA List – only made possible by your support – the new Congress sworn in today has an even bigger pro-life majority in the House and enjoys pro-life leadership in the Senate for the first time in 8 years. 

While a pro-abortion radical – President Obama – occupies the White House, we still have an opportunity to make pro-life gains this Congress, especially as we work to elect a pro-life president in 2016.

Our top priorities for this Congress include:

  • Ending painful, late abortions after 20 weeks, or 5 months of pregnancy
  • Ending taxpayer funding of abortion, including under ObamaCare
  • Strengthening conscience protections.

This fight begins today with the new Congress convening, and with the speedy introduction of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. 

>>> So please, email your Representative right now and urge them to co-sponsor the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. 

And after you’ve taken action, don’t forget to share this urgent action alert with as many of your like-minded friends and family as possible so they can take action too.

Christmas baby born 5 months early saved by freezer bag

Can we all at least agree that babies should be protected from abortion after 5 months of pregnancy? 

Baby Ellis was born at 24 weeks, when he could have been legally aborted. Instead, his parents and doctors fought to save him and he is now a "happy and cheeky" 1 year-old.

In 2015 you have the chance to save babies like Ellis from brutal late abortions. The new Senate is pro-life, and the new Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised to bring up the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for a Senate vote. Blocked for years by the old pro-abortion majority leader, Harry Reid, this bill could save up to 18,000 babies every year from painful abortions after 5 months of pregnancy.

Tell Majority Leader Mitch McConnell he must bring this life-saving bill to a vote. Tell your Senators they must stand for innocent unborn lives.

Act now: Join 14,096 pro-life Americans and sign the petition to demand a Senate vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Christmas baby born five MONTHS early was saved by Tesco freezer bag

Doctors warned that tiny Ellis Gawthorpe-Rogers might die after he was delivered weighing just 1Ib 11oz

A Christmas baby born five months early was saved by a Tesco freezer bag.

Ellis Gawthorpe-Rogers weighed just 1Ib 11oz when he was delivered following a 96-hour labour on Boxing day last year.

Ellis, who will turn one tomorrow, was originally due in April this year.

But his mum Emma Gawthorpe’s waters broke on December 22 following a day out Christmas shopping, and he arrived after a 96-hour labour on Boxing Day.

It was touch and go as Emma, 22, of Fleetwood, Lancashire, was just 24 weeks pregnant.


Tell your Senators they must stand for innocent unborn babies like Ellis.

Act now: Join 14,096 pro-life Americans and sign the petition to demand a Senate vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Do you have the facts? Lozier Institute does!

Now that we’ve wrapped up our final campaign victory in Louisiana, here at SBA List all focus has turned to the legislative fights to come in the New Year. The new pro-life Congress presents an historic opportunity to advance the cause of life. There’s no margin for error. We want to be ready with the facts… with painstaking research to back up our proposals in Congress. 

That’s why our sister organization, the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), needs your support more than ever!

 CLI educates the public on the real facts about abortion. As part of its mission, it provides legislators with solid research to make compelling arguments to pass laws that protect life. Now, we must make sure CLI’s unique research is available to help our pro-life Congress pass legislation like the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and repeal abortion funding in Obamacare. 

Tax-deductible gifts to the Charlotte Lozier Institute could not come at a better time!
A donor friend of life and the SBA List has challenged us to raise $121,000 for CLI. If we can raise those funds, this donor will match them dollar for dollar. Contributions to this urgent appeal will be DOUBLED!

CLI has already had a profound effect on advancing the cause of life this year. Not only has CLI’s work been cited in prominent media outlets – including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox News, Forbes magazine, NPR, EWTN and others – members of Congress routinely point to Lozier research when advocating for lifesaving policy. Take a look:
  • Speaker of the House John Boehner recently tweeted out CLI research exposing taxpayer funding of abortion in Obamacare:BoehnerTweet
  • Thirty U.S. Senators, including Sens. Ted Cruz and Kelly Ayotte, sent a “Dear Colleague” letter circulating CLI’s groundbreaking research on international abortion laws:

  • Rep. Chris Smith cited CLI President Chuck Donovan on its effort to assist consumers in finding pro-life health care coverage: 
CLI’s invaluable research must continue. Especially with a pro-life Congress about to convene.
That’s why we're hoping that SuzyB readers will support CLI with a very generous donation today – when one of our benefactors will automatically DOUBLE it. Remember, your gift will provide you with a tax-deduction for the year just ending.
Thanks to the generous matching gift challenge now in effect, year-end donations to the Institute will go to work immediately to support vital pro-life policies in the new Congress.

Please don’t forget how much we need you!
