Petitions in Support of 20 Week Abortion Ban Delivered to US Senate from Millennials

Students for Life of America today delivered petitions from students across the nation to the U.S. Senate Majority and Minority Leaders advocating banning abortions after 20 weeks through the Pain Capable Unborn Protection Act, which was passed one month ago today in the U.S. House of Representatives.
