Senate Vote Today on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

Barb Wire

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote today on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which prohibits abortion after 20 weeks (or five months) gestation. It passed the House on May 13th.

The Washington Post, Huffington Post, and Gallop show that two thirds of Americans support protecting unborn babies after five months—when we know they feel pain.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, at least 15,000 babies are killed in the U.S. each year after the 20th week.
