To the Editor,
Extreme pro-abortion legislation in New York and other states has shocked much of the country. But did you know that, even here in Minneosta, the law currently allows abortion at any time during pregnancy and for any reason? There is no legal limit in effect. This is an extreme policy wildly out-of-step with the view of most Americans and most Minnesotans.
That’s why the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (HF 1312 and SF 1609) is so important. This bill would protect pain-capable unborn children by prohibiting elective abortions after 20 weeks post conception, when a large body of scientific evidence shows that babies can feel real pain. Abortion at this stage is brutal and painful, and these children deserve our protection.
Please urge your legislators, Rep. Greg Davids Office # 651-296-9278, address 283 St. Office Building St. Paul, Minn. 55155, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and Sen. Jeremy R. Miller Office # 651-296-5649, address 95 University Ave. W. MN Sen. Bldg, Room 3107 St. Capitol, St. Paul, Minn. 55155, email email@example.com, to vote in favor of this mainstream, compassionate piece of legisation.
