There is disturbing news to report to you today–and a way you can help.
Congress is about to vote on the most radical abortion bill of all time.
The ongoing push to force taxpayer-funded abortion in the budget process is terrible. The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” is much worse.
In addition to forcing taxpayer dollars to fund abortion, this bill would mean…
- Abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy would be imposed nationwide, even in states that don’t want it.
- Pro-life laws would be on the chopping block at every level of government (federal, state, and local). This includes laws on parental notification for minor girls, informed consent, and health or safety protections for abortion facilities.
- Health care professionals like doctors and nurses would likely be forced to perform, assist in, and/or refer for abortion against their deeply-held beliefs.
- Employers and insurers would be forced to cover or pay for abortion.
We need to tell the House of Representatives that this horrible bill must never be enacted.
Please – can you spare just a moment to email Congress now?
STOPPING TAXPAYER-FUNDED ABORTION
Congress is trying to force Americans to pay for abortion.
The Hyde Amendment and similar laws have protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion for 45 years. Now, powerful members of Congress want to take away these laws that both Democrats and Republicans have supported for nearly half a century. Billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortion.
It is critically important for Catholics to send a strong message before Congress moves forward to impose taxpayer-funded abortion.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 619) has again been introduced in Congress to protect babies from infanticide.
But efforts to bring the bill to a vote in the House are being blocked. Your action is needed to urge your Representative to sign a discharge petition that would allow this vote to occur.
Some states have passed laws to expand abortion and to repeal laws providing specific protections for babies born alive after surviving an attempted abortion. The Born-Alive Act would provide these specific protections nationwide to help prevent newborns from being killed or left alone to die.
We must continue to push Congress to pass the Born-Alive Act, so babies born alive following an abortion attempt are treated the same as any other newborn baby. PLEASE ACT TODAY!!!

THE EQUALITY ACT
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. The Equality Act, which is being voted on in the U.S. Senate soon, in many ways does the opposite and needs to be opposed. Instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith. The Equality Act would: punish faith-based organizations, such as charities and schools who serve everyone in their communities, simply because of their beliefs; force girls and women to compete against boys and men for limited opportunities in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower spaces with biological males who identify as women; risk mandating taxpayers to fund abortions; force people in everyday life, and especially health care workers, to support gender transition; and expand what the government considers a “public” place, forcing even some parish halls to host functions that conflict with Catholic beliefs.
