Legislation

Even with a hostile Administration, it is essential to introduce and pass pro-life legislation at the federal level when we have the support to do so. Right now, there are important bills that have been introduced and which enjoy the support of a majority of the American people.

We urge you to click on the links below to learn about this legislation, and then to let your Representatives and Senators know that you want these measures passed!

Besides communicating with your elected officials, be sure to also inform your pastors, families, Church groups, Facebook friends, and others you can reach about these bills.

General Guidance on Taking Action to Influence Legislation

Go to the National Righ to Life Committee website to locate your representatives in Congress, to find out how they have voted, and to contact them!  Or to find details on any legislation pending before Congress, go to http://thomas.gov where you will find search tools to give you a bill’s text, status, co- sponsors, and other information.  Also, for an update on current pro-life legislation, please visit http://www.capwiz.com/nrlc/issues/.  This page will give you guidance from the nation's top pro-life lobbying group, National Right to Life.
