The Republican House, led by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ),
is working on legislation to ban all abortions after
20 weeks - NATIONWIDE - except in cases of "documented" rape or incest, or in cases of irreversible physical danger or imminent death of the woman. The woman's mental health is not an exception. Demand that your Representatives vote NO on H.R. 1797 "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" and NO to dangerous anti-women legislation.
By restricting abortion to 20 weeks, women and their families will no longer have the benefit of tests that typically are performed later in pregnancies showing genetic or developmental anomalies. The arbitrary 20-week cutoff robs families of the ability to make informed decisions.
The bill itself is unconstitutional because it directly contradicts Roe v. Wade; and, overturning Roe v. Wade is the anti-choice movement's goal.
Every member of Congress needs to hear from pro-choice constituents like you. Even if your lawmaker is anti-choice, we need you to speak out against this bill now.
There are 184 co-sponsors to H.R. 1797, including 180 Republicans and 4 Democrats.
By signing this petition, you will be saying NO to this legislation!
