Why Congress Passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Act

Politics

It is incredible that in a country that prides itself on being the beacon for the world, we have to fight tooth and nail to give the same protections against cruel and brutal treatment to our unborn children that animals already enjoy.

The House of Representatives passed H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, Tuesday by a vote of 228 to 196. The trial of convicted baby killer Kermit Gosnell was clearly a wake-up call for many Americans, and Congress responded to their demand for action. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R. 1797, will protect the same babies we were outraged to see in refrigerators and mason jars in Philadelphia. It prohibits abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization, when the baby is capable of experiencing pain, and could stop all future Kermit Gosnells in their tracks.

Though much debate erupted on the House floor last night, we know Gosnell was not an aberration, and we praise the legislators who acted to prevent future babies from the same fate.
