"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act..." -Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Dear Speaker Ryan,
It is time to act. We implore you to keep your pro-life promises and bring the Heartbeat Bill, H.R. 490, to an immediate floor vote to protect hundreds of thousands of innocent children each year whose beating hearts can be detected.
• The Heartbeat Bill will protect more lives than any bill ever passed in Congress. • With 170 members of Congress on the bill, the Heartbeat Bill has more co-sponsors than any other pro-life bill. • It is supported by the President and the Vice President. • It is supported by hundreds of national leaders and pro-life organizations. • It is backed by seven out of ten in America, 86 percent of Republicans, and 55 percent of Democrats (George Barna poll, 2017). • We elected pro-life Republican majorities in the House and the Senate to END abortion, not merely regulate it. • President Trump has promised to fill every upcoming Supreme Court vacancy with pro-life justices, who will be ready to uphold the Heartbeat Bill. • After 45 years of microscopic incrementalism, nearly a million American children are still brutally killed by legal abortion every single year. • Just because one organization refuses to act does not excuse inaction on your part. • Every day we delay thousands of innocent babies will be needlessly and brutally killed in our nation, babies the Heartbeat Law will protect. • You have it within your power to act and bring the Heartbeat Bill to an immediate floor vote.
As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, "Not to act is to act. God will not hold us guiltless."
This is your chance to make history to call for a vote to save every child whose heartbeat can be heard before you leave office. Please don't miss it.
Proverbs 24:11-12 (NLT) Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; save them as they stagger to their death. Do not excuse yourself by saying, "Look, we did not know.." For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve.
