Take Action TODAY to Protect the Preborn
Pro-Life Vote Set for U.S. Senate on Tues., Sept. 22

Action Alert: The U.S. Senate is expected to vote on an important pro-life bill Tuesday, Sept. 22, and we need your help.
The bill, the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" (H.R. 36), prohibits late-term abortion beginning at 20 weeks after fertilization except in limited circumstances.
The measure passed the U.S. House of Representatives in May and represents one of the best opportunities in recent years at the federal level to reduce the number of abortions, and serve as a major blow in the courts to Roe v Wade.
This is a key opportunity to speak up for defenseless preborn babies by contacting your two U.S. Senators and asking them to support and vote for H.R. 36.
It's easy to make your voice heard in support of this bill before Tuesday:
· If you want to contact your two U.S. Senators this weekend, we suggest using our Action Center to email messages to their offices.
· If you can call today (Friday) or Monday, Sept. 21 (the day before the vote), please call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, and leave a message with both of your senators' offices.
When you call your two senators:
· Be prepared to give your name and street address to verify where you live. This is standard procedure with every Senate office.
· Then, respectfully ask the senator to SUPPORT and VOTE FOR the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," H.R. 36.
Thank you for being a voice for the voiceless.
Their fate is in our hands.
P.S. Please feel free to share this alert with your friends and family via email or on social media. We will have alerts on our Thriving Values Facebook page, so you can go there and "share" one of our alert posts or create your own. Thank you!
This family ministry is made possible by the generous support of friends like you.

Helping Families Thrive
Focus on the Family is a global Christian ministry dedicated to helping families thrive. We provide help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles.
We’re here to come alongside families with relevance and grace at each stage of their journey. We support families as they seek to teach their children about God and His beautiful design for the family, protect themselves from the harmful influences of culture and equip themselves to make a greater difference in the lives of those around them.
No matter who you are, what you’re going through or what challenges your family may be facing, we’re here to help. With practical resources - like our 1-800 Family Help line, counseling and websites – we’re committed to providing trustworthy, biblical guidance and support.
Our passion for what we do is driven by our foundational values:
We believe that all people are of infinite value, regardless of age, development, appearance or ability.
We believe that marriage is the foundation of family life, and that God’s design for marriage is a relationship where both husband and wife are committed to loving and caring for one another for a lifetime.
We believe children are a gift from God, and thrive best in a home where both mother and father are committed to raising them with love, intention, and care.
We believe sex is given by God as an expression of love to be shared and enjoyed exclusively between a husband and wife.
We believe that Christians have a responsibility to promote truth and social policy that improves the strength and health of the family, as God designed.
And we believe that parents should aspire to model for their children how to humbly follow the teachings and spirit of Jesus at home and in the community.
Ultimately, we believe that the purpose of life is to know and glorify God through an authentic relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. This purpose is lived out first within our own families then extended, in love, to an increasingly broken world that desperately needs Him.
Through our radio broadcasts, websites, simulcasts, conferences, interactive forums, magazines, books, counseling and much more, Focus on the Family equips parents, children and spouses to thrive in an ever-changing, ever-more-complicated world. If you feel there is a specific way we can help your family, or if you'd simply like to know more about us, please browse our website or call us toll-free at 1-800-A-FAMILY.
