Federal bills would protect underage girls
To the editor:
Sen. John Ensign of Nevada has reintroduced Senate Bill 851, the Child Custody Protection Act, in the U.S. Senate. This bill has 11 co-sponsors. At the same time, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida has introduced House Resolution 1755 and has 68 co-sponsors. Three times in the past the House has passed this bill. Each time, it has been blocked from becoming law by pro-abortion senators.
The bill is designed to prevent the transportation of a child across state lines to avoid parental consent or notification laws in their home states. More than 800 clinics have helped to cover up statutory rapes by advising underage callers to have abortions. These bills would help prevent young girls from being victimized by their fathers and the clinics.
Please contact your senators and representatives in Washington. Ask them to support passage of Senate Bill 851 and House Resolution 1755.
