A life is a special thing
Heaven's little offering
Each in some simple way to bless
This trembling world with much unrest
We are each born with a talent...We need each other. We teach each other. And some of us are missing.
For the voiceless, I think I just found ears to hear.
I opened up this email and it hit me (besides everything else) that we are missing out on untold talents through all these abortions.
firstname.lastname@example.orgDear Kelly ,
Did you see Martin's email below? Your immediate action could make all the difference.
We are in the middle of our Life at Conception Act cosponsor blitz, and your Congressman Joe Heck has not yet cosponsored the Life at Conception Act.
An extra, personal push from you could make all the difference.
If you haven't already done so, please click here to send him a personal email, using Martin's sample message below, or give him a phone call at 202-225-3252.
Please contact him immediately and urge him to cosponsor the Life at Conception Act.
If you have already contacted him, please forward to a friend.
Email Me - Thank You | Congressman Joe Heck
Thank you for contacting me to share your support for H.R. 374, the Life at Conception Act. I share your strong concerns and appreciate the opportunity to respond to you on this important issue
I am a cosponsor of H.R. 374. This legislation, introduced by Representative Duncan Hunter on January 20, 2011, would give the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution to every human beginning at the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual comes into being. H.R. 374 has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.
I strongly agree that we should do all we can to protect life and prevent abortions, with rare exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is in danger. Many affordable options are easily available to prevent unintended pregnancies, but abortion is not an acceptable form of birth control. You will be pleased to know that I co-sponsored H.R. 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which passed the House with my strong support by a vote of 251-175. I also voted for Rep. Mike Pence's (R-IN) amendment to the FY2011 Continuing Resolution (H.R. 1) that prohibits federal funds from going to Planned Parenthood.
Though abortion is legal in the United States, taxpayers should not be forced to pay for these procedures. Current federal and state laws prohibit the use of family planning dollars for abortion-related services, and mechanisms exist to enforce and monitor compliance with those laws. Important family planning services and birth control options are available to help families prepare for the future, but taxpayer funds should not be used to pay for or promote abortion-related services. Should additional legislation on abortion issues be considered by the House of Representatives, please be assured that I will remember your support for this legislation.
For additional information, please visit my website, http://www.heck.house.gov. From this site you can access statements about current events or pending legislation, and receive detailed information about the many services that I am privileged to provide for Nevadans.
Again, I appreciate your thoughts and it is an honor to serve you in Congress. Your suggestions are always welcome, and if ever I may be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
DR. JOE HECK
Member of Congress
