Action urged on Protect Life Act

Catholic World News - October 12, 2011

The National Committee for a Human Life Amendment (NCHLA)--which works closely with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on abortion-related legislation--is urging pro-life Americans to contact members of the House of Representatives on behalf the Protect Life Act, which is scheduled for a vote on October 13.

The Protect Life Act would remove the possibility of abortion funding from healthcare legislation approved last year and would also apply conscience-protection provisions to the legislation.

    I ask that everyone contact their representative regarding this important bill and also pray to our Blessed Lady that the hearts of our elected officials be opened to protect life.
