National Pro-Life Alliance President Martin Fox is pleased with the progress being made towards passing a Life at Conception Act and credits the dedication of NPLA members with the increased Congressional support.
"Abortion apologists in Congress can no longer afford to ignore the call to end abortion-on-demand.
Members have sent a clear message to self-proclaimed 'pro-life' politicians that we will not be pacified by limited measures to regulate abortion in certain limited circumstances.
Now more than ever, these politicians are forced to listen," proclaimed Fox
"With 64 original cosponsors on Duncan Hunter's Life at Conception Act right out of the gate, we're on a pace to gain over 100 cosponsors in the current session - a number even the staunchly pro-abortion leadership will ignore at their own peril," warned Fox
As Martin Fox
pointed out, "since in politics you always get less than what you ask for.
NPLA members are doing exactly the right tiling in demanding an end to Roe v. Wide."
According to Martin Fox
"The impressive number of original cosponsors of H.R. 618 heading into the new Democrat controlled Congress is crucial.
With pro-abortion zealots in control of leadership positions in both houses of Congress, we´ll need all the support we can get to grab the attention of Nancy Pelosi and company."
That means the importance of grass-roots pressure cannot be overstated.
"With many new Democrat members of Congress claiming to be 'pro-life,' we must hold their feet to the fire and demand true pro-life action," said Fox
Fox said the National Pro-Life Alliance and its members will bring maximum pressure to bear on Democrats like Heath Shuler (NC-11).
"Pro-lifers must now firmly remind them what so many abortion apologists have learned the hard way in past elections - that support for abortion-on-demand or failure to defend human life will not be tolerated," stated Fox
is urging members everywhere to flood Congress with petitions, post cards, letters and phone calls demanding support for H.R. 618.
