“This bill would save thousands of unborn babies annually from terribly painful deaths,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

Jennifer Popik, J.D., legislative director for National Right to Life, added, “These are very developed babies – these babies are capable of feeling pain and are considered by the medical profession to be a second patient. This legislation has saved lives, driving out abortionists from states performing abortions on these babies. And this legislation has the power to speak to the people of this country, highlighting, that where this bill is not law, it is legal to kill these very developed unborn children. “

The pro-life bill now heads to the U.S. Senate. Please contact Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker and ask them to add their name as co-sponsors to Senator Graham's bill to be introduced later this week.

He left the abortion industry and became a leading pro-life advocate.
