Support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

January 16, 2015

Next Thursday, Jan. 22, will mark the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the infamous Supreme Court case that legalized abortion. Thousands will travel to Washington D.C. to participate in the annual March for Life. The House of Representatives will also mark the occasion this year with a vote on H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, supported by an overwhelming majority of the Republican conference.

Not only are her comments at odds with public opinion polls showing widespread support for the 20-week ban, but they contradict her previous support for the measure. A 20-week cutoff has overwhelming support as shown in these polls by the Washington Post and Quinnipiac University show. 

Permitting abortions past 20 weeks also places America beyond the pale internationally; the Charlotte Lozier Institute found that only six other countries permit abortions at such a late date, placing our nation in the company of China and North Korea.

This legislation is a significant step forward for the cause of life. Contact your representative and urge him or her to vote YES on H.R. 36, The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.


Message to U.S. House Members:

Vote YES on H.R. 36, The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

We urge you to support H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Banning abortions after 20 weeks would end a cruel practice and reaffirm our country’s commitment to life.

Scientific evidence has shown that unborn babies can feel pain at 20 weeks. Allowing them to be killed at this late stage of development is a national disgrace that few other nations permit.

Americans overwhelmingly support the 20-week ban. There is no excuse not to vote for H.R. 36.
