Today the House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Please see below for a statement from Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.
“We are so proud that the House has passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and moved to ban abortions after 20 weeks gestation, where the preborn baby has been scientifically proven to feel pain. There is no excuse for the now pro-life Senate not to bring the bill to the floor for a vote immediately. U.S. Senators must go ‘on the record’ as voting for or against the horrific procedure of abortion at this stage in a woman’s pregnancy, where the preborn baby will feel every effort to end his or her life. It is inexcusable that the United States is one of seven nations that allows abortions after five months.”
