Cast a Vote For the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act — Save a Life!
After passing a similar bill out of the House in 2013 and 2015, the third time may be the charm for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Thanks to the leadership of Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Republicans may finally get the measure to the desk of a pro-life president after years of trying.
If the Senate does its part, America would finally leave the small club of countries that allow abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when babies feel excruciating pain.
President Trump reiterated his support this week in a statement of administration policy.
“The administration strongly supports H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and applauds the House of Representatives for continuing its efforts to secure critical pro-life protections.
The bill, if enacted into law, would help to facilitate the culture of life to which our Nation aspires…
The United States is currently out of the mainstream in the family of nations, in which only seven of 198 nations allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
America’s children deserve stronger protections that H.R. 36 would advance. If H.R. 36 were presented to the president in its current form, his advisors would recommend that he sign the bill into law.”
Let’s hope the Senate gives him a chance. Urge both sides to back the restrictions that a majority of Americans support — and save thousands of lives in the process!
