An Example of a Letter to Mail, Fax, or E-mail Your Representative Regarding the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2001 (H.R. 503)

Mailed or Faxed Correpondence...

To A Representative:

The Honorable (full name)
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative (last name):

On March 15, 2001, a House Judiciary Subcommittee opens hearings on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2001 (H.R. 503). [To view the bill see: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d107:h.r.00503: ] The measure would establish criminal penalties for anyone injuring or killing a fetus while committing certain federal offenses. This would include terrorism and crimes committed on federal property against military personnel and federal employees.

If an individual causes death or injury to a member of the species Homo sapiens at any stage of development, the bill (sponsored by Representative Lindsey Graham [Republican-South Carolina]) would create a separate criminal offense.

As your constituent, I encourage you to support the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2001 (H.R. 503).

Thank you for your consideration to support this bill.

Sincerely,

(Your Name*)

*Be sure to include your complete address in the letter.
