Please Support the Pregnant Women Support Act
(Email Archive Link)
Catholic Democrats Activists:
I am writing you today to ask you to lend your support to the Pregnant Women Support Act, which is moving through congress S 1032 in the Senate and HR 2035 in the House. This legislation seeks to support pregnant women by giving them better access to information and government services. It does not seek to criminalize abortion, or seek to be divisive by using the overblown rhetoric from the past.
While I have decided to support this initiative, I am interested in your opinion. Please go to the Catholic Democrats PAC site, and vote your opinion in the poll.
As you know, the Catholic Democrats PAC focuses its support on Social Justice and Peace issues. When it comes to Life issues, our stated goal is to reduce the numbers of abortions in this country by every means except criminalization and throwing women and doctors into jail. This legislation, in my opinion does just that. It also has the key provision which seeks to reduce the single largest cause of abortion in this country, unintended pregnancy.
While no piece of legislation is perfect, it is written and offered in the best spirit of the Common Good movement, by bringing together the best ideas from all sides.
I urge you to research this legislation and call congress and ask them to support it.
