The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is one of the top priorities of pro-life groups like the Susan B. Anthony List in 2014.
The SBA List calls seeing the bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives one of the highlights of 2013.
SBA'a Vice President for Government Affairs, former Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo., says the way to also make the bill a priority in the Senate is for constituents to contact their senators and remind them about the legislation.
"Even pro-abortion Senator Harry Reid - Majority Leader in the Senate - said he'd be 'happy to take a look' at it," said Musgrave.
"But in order to force a vote in the Senate, every Senator needs to hear from their constituents. They must understand that protecting unborn babies from the horror of late abortion is the top priority," she concluded.
Passed in June of 2013, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would prevent the abortion of unborn babies capable of feeling excruciating pain more than halfway through pregnancy.
Musgrave says it was the first time Congress "voted to protect an entire class of unborn children."
The SBA List emailed supporters and asked them to be sure and contact their senators in 2014 and ask them to co-sponsor the bill so it will advance in the Senate. It was introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in November.
