Urgent Action Needed - Your Senators to Vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 2311)
Jan. 25, 2018
On Monday, the U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 2311) sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), which is identical to the bill passed by the House in October. The bill would prohibit brutal abortions on unborn babies after 5 months post-fertilization, the point at which science tells us the children feel excruciating pain from being ripped apart in the womb. The bill would likely save over 13,000 human lives each year and directly challenges Roe v. Wade precedent.
After the House passed the bill in October 2017, President Donald Trump said he would sign this bill into law. Senators need to be held accountable on whether or not they believe pain-capable unborn babies should be aborted.
We know that abortionists like Dr. Kermit Gosnell, convicted of murdering born-alive babies and illegally performing late abortions, too often kill unborn children late in development. We should not be one of only seven countries in the world, along with North Korea, China,and Vietnam that have legalized abortion on demand after 20 weeks of development.
Unborn babies at this stage can feel pain as is evidenced by the fact that unborn children at this age routinely are given anesthesia during prenatal surgery. Dr. Kanwaljeet Anand testified before Congress that “the human fetus possesses the ability to experience pain from 20 weeks gestation, if not earlier and the pain perceived by the fetus is possibly more intense than that perceived by term newborns or children.”
Medical advances have enhanced our understanding of unborn human life and it’s time for the law to catch up.
