House Passes Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

House to vote on abortion ban after 20 weeks of pregnancy

Today we know that unborn babies not only die but suffer excruciating pain during dismemberment abortion-a cruelty that rips arms and legs off a helpless child. After seven weeks she began kicking her mother like any good Wagner child would.

Democrats, however, argued that abortions that late in the pregnancy rarely happened, and emphasized the mother's role in choosing whether to abort.

"Very late term abortions are an extreme and barbaric practice", Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, the bill's sponsor, said in a statement. The bill threatens doctors with fines and a harsh penalty of up to five years in prison and imposes additional hurdles that interfere with the patient-provider relationship and further delay care. He said Micah had "put a face" to the legislation and displayed a blue bracelet that Micah had given him which read 'Miracles for Micah'.

But given that the US Supreme Court has refused to defend state "heartbeat laws" (6-week bans) that have been ruled unconstitutional, other pro-lifers supported his strategy. Micahs who will never fall in love and have children of their own. But there are more. "We do not believe that a 20-week fetus can perceive pain".

The divisive issue of abortion has once again been brought to the forefront of national conversations since President Donald Trump assumed office.

President Trump promised to sign the bill on the campaign trail and the White House released a statement Monday formally backing it. Bill may be rejected in Senate However, it is noted that provision of majority in Senate is not guaranteed. But the Senate did not vote on the bills.

Senator Lindsey Graham indicated October 3 he would introduce a bill in the Senate modeled on the House measure.

Now the measure has full support from the White House.


Franks' bill enjoyed the support of fellow conservatives in the GOP conference and from the influential Susan B. Anthony List pro-life group.

And for those who recognize that abortion is murder at any stage, bills such as these are at least a small step toward the end goal of ending all abortions by forcing advocates to look at the process with a more compassionate eye.

Additionally, late-term abortions that occur after 20 weeks are often rare because they only occur in complex circumstances. Fifteen states, including Georgia, have passed laws that parallel this federal bill, while many others now allow providers to perform abortions on older babies. Momentum has always been building for national legislation to protect babies at five months.

Today (October 3), the House of Representatives passed a bill that bans abortion procedures after 20 weeks, with limited exceptions for rape survivors and when the pregnant woman's life is in danger. This bill will not only save between 11,000-18,000 lives a year, but will serve to educate the public on the humanity of the unborn person and affirm the science of fetal pain early in development.

But the measure will not reach Trump because Senate Democrats have enough votes to kill it with a filibuster - a delaying tactic that takes 60 votes to overcome. The vast majority of abortion procedures are performed before 20 weeks.

The bill builds the case for the reality of fetal pain by noting by 20 weeks, "pain receptors (nociceptors) are present throughout the unborn child's entire body".

"T$3 here's nearly no difference between killing a baby accidentally born alive in a late-term abortion, as Gosnell stands accused of, and killing the same baby in the womb, as more skilled doctors can do", wrote liberal, pro-choice Bloomberg columnist Margaret Carlson.
