Human Life Action - Action Alert  

Urge Congress to Pass the Dignity for Aborted Children Act

Many of you are likely aware of the recent story from Indiana in which thousands of aborted children were found in the home of a deceased abortionist.  In response to this story, the Dignity for Aborted Children Act has been introduced in Congress.  This important legislation would require humane treatment and burial/disposition of fetal remains following abortion.  As you know, Texas has already passed similar legislation, but this act would make similar humane treatment a requirement throughout the U.S.

Join us in asking your Senators and Representative to support and pass the Dignity for Aborted Children Act
