Dear Editor,

For too long I have been silent on the topic of abortion. I consider and pray that our nation would value unborn lives, but I have felt a strong need to speak up and encourage others to also. It's time to speak up for the little ones who have no voice and bring an end to what's referred to as “women's reproductive healthcare,” also called abortion. I pray that we all would embrace God's design for life and also that many more couples would consider adopting babies when possible.

There will be a Senate vote next Monday, February 25th, 2019 on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311).

I include the following from the National Right to Life website (

Urge your senators to vote YES on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act! (S. 311)

In light of the radical trend that started with the signing of the Reproductive Health Act by Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), allowing abortion through all stages of pregnancy and removing explicit protections for babies born alive following a failed abortion, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311), sponsored by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Ne.), would enact an explicit requirement that a baby born alive during an abortion must be afforded “the same degree” of care that would apply “to any other child born alive at the same gestational age,” including transportation to a hospital.

In addition, the bill applies the existing penalties of the federal murder statute to anyone who performs “an overt act that kills a child born alive.” The bill also empowers women with a right to sue their abortionists and others for harm caused by violations of the act. National Right to Life strongly supports the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Call your senator to urge them to support this legislation!

Go to the National Right to Life web site- for information on legislation. You can call or write your senators from this site and speak up for the little ones.
