November 17, 2019 ACTION ALERT- Action Alert: with talking points and script  PHONE CALL Printable Document and Mailchimp Campaign​


    April 3, 2019   Took signed petition cards to Congressional members asking them to sign the Baby Born Alive Bill 

     if your representative is not on the list call and ask them to sign:  link to US Congress   

    • Kathy Castor (202) 225-3376 and (813) 871-2817
    • Charlie Crist- (202) 225-5961 and (727) 218-6770
    You can sign a petition asking your congress member to sign the discharge petition

    TALKING POINTS:  1) This is not a hypothetical situation; 2) Current law is insufficient (2002 identified baby as a person but did not establish a 'duty of care.' 3) This is not an abortion bill but care outside the womb... healthcare is for everyone.

    • Do you believe every baby born deserves the best medical care?
    • Isn't it amazing how often babies can survive with medical care at 22 weeks?
    • Is the any reason you will not support protecting babies born alive?
