Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Banning Barbaric Abortion Practice Introduced in U.S. Senate

Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Banning Barbaric Abortion Practice Introduced in U.S. Senate

November 7, 2013

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC - Stating that he is acting more on conscience than politics, Sen. Lindsey Graham will introduce today a version of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the U.S. Senate that would ban abortions after the fifth month of pregnancy when pre-born babies are known to feel pain. Sen. Marco Rubio has signed on as a co-sponsor.

A similar, but slightly different bill was passed by the House earlier this year after a committee hearing that heard testimony scientific studies confirming pain is experienced by the baby in the womb even before the 20-week limit. Also shown at the hearing were photos obtained by Operation Rescue depicting late-term aborted babies taken by shocked employees at Douglas Karpen's abortion clinic in Houston, Texas, in July, 2012.

The introduction of the Senate version continues the wave of legislation aimed at halting abortions halfway through pregnancy and later. Such late-term abortion bans enjoy huge popular support as Americans more are embracing the pro-life position.
