V.P. Pence Strongly Supports Heartbeat Bill
 
This letter, signed by more than 120 group leaders, calls for an immediate vote on the Heartbeat Bill (HR 490).  It was hand delivered to Vice President Pence in the White House by former Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Janet Porter, and Rachelle Heidlebaugh.  

The Vice President said he "loves" the Heartbeat Bill and promised to personally place it on the President's desk.
September 13, 2017
Dear President Trump, Vice President Pence, Speaker Ryan, and Leader McCarthy,
On Nov 8th of last year, 81% of Evangelicals voted to put President Donald Trump into the White House and Republicans in control of the House and Senate. They are now watching closely, wondering if Republicans in Washington will keep their campaign promises. One of the most important campaign promises was the protection of unborn life.

We, the undersigned, have united to protect human lives with HR 490, the Heartbeat Protection Act, which is co-sponsored by two-thirds of the Republicans in Congress-more than any other pro-life bill. It also has more public support than any other pro-life bill. Simply put, the Heartbeat Bill ensures that "if a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected." To deny the child's beating heart is to deny science. To ignore it is heartless.
According to the father of the pro-life movement, the late Dr. John Willke, the Heartbeat Bill will protect 95% of the babies who would otherwise be aborted. Simply recognizing this universal indicator of life-a heartbeat-is the most effective way to "Make America Safe Again."
While we support pro-life bills that protect preborn children, the Pain Capable Bill (HR 36) would only protect babies after five months-that's only 1.3% of the babies facing abortion, according to CDC statistics.
As Dr. Willke stated, "When I founded the pro-life movement, it wasn't to regulate how abortions would be done, it was to bring the abortion killing to an END. We have waited too long and that wait has cost us too much. "
After 44 years, an "incremental approach" has left us with a body count of nearly 60 million. We are a far cry from success when nearly a million abortions are still being committed each year. But in order to achieve a different result, we must do something different. The Heartbeat Bill is different.
According to a 2017 George Barna poll, 69% of Americans support the Heartbeat Bill-most of them strongly.  The bill has support from the vast majority of Republicans (86%) and Independents (61%).  Even 55% of Democrats believe "If a doctor is able to detect a heartbeat of an unborn baby, that baby should be legally protected."  The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals declared that the heartbeat is a more "consistent and certain" indicator of life than "viability," the arbitrary standard the U.S. Supreme Court currently uses to allow legal protection of children in the womb.
 
While respect all pro-life efforts, after four decades, it's time to achieve the goal for which we have marched, prayed, and voted.  With a Republican House, Senate, White House, and new Supreme Court being ushered in, we can do more than protect 1.3% of the babies, we can protect every child whose beating heart can be heard.  
We urgently and respectfully request that you lead your legislative agenda this fall with HR 490, the Heartbeat Bill, supported by two-thirds of the Republican members of Congress, seven out of ten Americans, and millions of pro-life voters who will be greatly encouraged by its passage prior to the midterm elections.                                                                 
                                                                Sincerely,
