Dear Catholic Voice NC participant,
Today we are asking you to take action in support of a bill that was recently introduced into the General Assembly.
S.B. 425, the Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act, will outlaw the hideous practice of physically tearing apart an unborn baby during a second trimester abortion in our state.
Although dismemberment is not the most common abortion method, it is easily the least humane since it inflicts unspeakable physical pain on the unborn prior to death.
As with the sex-selection anti-abortion bill that our legislature considered in 2013 we support this measure because it illuminates the awful lengths which some in our society are willing to go to deny life to the innocent. At the same time it brings into sharp focus the barbaric nature of all abortions.
Please click on the link below to send a message to our state senators urging them to support this bill.
Yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend Peter J. Jugis
Bishop of Charlotte
The Very Reverend Michael P. Shugrue
Administrator, Diocese of Raleigh
