Assisted Suicide and Abortion: This Week at the Rhode Island State House

By Rhode Island Right to Life

With the spring legislative recess now behind us, we are heading into the final stretch at the State House. We need your help to hold the line for 8 more weeks.

If you have not yet done so, please respond to our ASSISTED SUICIDE ACTION ALERT – and join us at the HEARING THIS THURSDAY if you are able.

The battle over the extreme NY / VA style abortion bill continues to quietly rage. The Senate Judiciary Committee has not yet scheduled a vote on S 152 Substitute A. Here is what you can do to help:

First, we need pro-life individuals to join us at the State House every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Abortion proponents in pink shirts have been swarming the floor of the Senate in support of the bill. We need to match their efforts with passionate pro-life advocates wearing blue.

Second, abortion proponents are making phone calls to the office of the Senate President. We need to match them call for call beginning at 2:45 p.m. through 4:15 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The phone number for the office of the Senate President is (401) 222-6655 – simply state your name and town of residence and let them know that you oppose the extreme New York and Virginia style abortion expansion bill. If at first the line is busy, keep trying… spread the word in your church.

Third, please continue referring people to our online petition. Having more people sign the online petition will help us quickly turn out a maximum number of emails and phone calls if and when a vote is scheduled in the Senate.

Last, please follow us on Facebook to stay informed.

A few other quick reminders…

If you have not yet done so, you may email your Member of Congress about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

If you have not yet done so, please respond to our ASSISTED SUICIDE ACTION ALERT – and join us at the HEARING THIS THURSDAY if you are able.
