It has been announced that the US House of Representatives will vote on the Pain Capable bill next week, which bans abortions after 20 weeks, when babies in the womb have scientifically been proven to feel pain.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, said the following:
“We are happy to see that dedicated pro-life leaders in the House were able to work together to stop the Pain Capable bill from having significant loopholes for late-term abortions and put in place the necessary counseling and medical treatment that victims of rape and incest need. As soon as the House passes the bill next week, the Republican-led Senate must schedule an immediate vote. No more time can be wasted in trying to protect innocent life, especially for those who have been proven to feel pain and are viable outside the womb.”
