PLEASE- Urge US Senate to PASS 20-week Abortion Ban - HR-36 - Unborn Child Protection Act

Lucky for many people, I don't get to make the laws. I think Abortion is murder from Day One. In my mind, the spark of a new human life starts at conception, but I don't intend to turn this into a religious or philosophical debate.
Let's try to keep this scientific and factual.
Science says most women will know they are pregnant by 4 weeks after conception. By only 3 weeks into pregnancy though, that little life already has a full set of human DNA from both parents. By 5 weeks, the baby has a heartbeat. Over the next few weeks, everything from facial features to arms and legs, vital organs, and even tiny fingers and toes are forming or already formed. And by 20 weeks, that tiny human baby, which is now a boy or a girl, can even hear the voices of the family it will be joining. Or he/she might hear the voice of a doctor talking about how this is where life ends.
As it stands, the bill gives protection to expecting mothers who choose abortion after 20 weeks due to Rape, Incest, or to Save the Life of the Mother. I never condone taking a baby's life, but even in those extreme cases, the mother should be able to make that decision before 20 weeks as well. That is 4 months to make a life-ending decision.
Those who would fight this bill argue that it will push women into dark alleys and/or even attempt self-induced abortions- and those would be the women who willingly accept that risk in order to perpetuate their "my body, my choice" perspective.
This is an emotionally charged issue, and in my mind, abortion is murder. The fact that the penalty for killing an adult can be LIFE imprisonment or Execution, but killing a Baby only holds a consequence of 5yrs in prison is insanity to me.
But lucky for those who disagree, I don't get to make the laws.
I think we can all agree that any woman who would argue for the right to kill a baby has more than enough time to make that choice before 20 weeks- when the baby can hear the discussion, and feel the pain that it did nothing to deserve.
This bill is a small step in the right direction.
Urge your State Senator to Vote YES and PASS this bill into law.
Our children are our future.
