Protect Pain-Capable Unborn Children - S. 61
Protect Pain-Capable Unborn Children
Encourage your legislators to support pro-life, anti-pain legislation to protect developing babies from unspeakable harm and death. Ban abortions of developing babies at the stage in which they can feel pain.
This legislation would provide common-sense protections for unborn children at 20 weeks after fertilization, a point at which there is significant scientific evidence that abortion inflicts tremendous pain on the unborn. Only seven countries allow abortions at the 20-week period--including China, Vietnam and North Korea. Senators have urged passage of this bill, saying:
  • “Congress must protect innocent human life. The science is clear - unborn babies feel pain. Congress must follow the science and our conscience and end late-term abortions.” – Senator John Barrasso
  • “There should be no question as to whether pain-capable unborn children should be protected by federal law. The majority of Americans believe elective abortion after 20 weeks should be banned. And, our nation is one of only seven in the world to allow it, including China and North Korea. I will continue standing for life and giving a voice to the voiceless.” – Senator Roy Blunt
  • "Medical science increasingly confirms the common experience of parents and the religious and ethical belief of the ages: an unborn baby is just as much a person as each of us-only more innocent, more helpless, and therefore even more deserving of protection. I look forward to working with my colleagues to promote a culture of life and bring this legislation to the floor for a vote." – Senator Tom Cotton
  • “Every life is valuable—born or unborn. It shouldn’t be controversial to say that if a child survives an attempted abortion and is living outside his or her mother, that baby deserves to receive care. We should all agree that tax dollars should not fund abortion on demand in the United States or overseas. When science has shown a child can feel pain, they should not be subjected to a dismemberment abortion. And if a healthcare professional has a moral objection to participating in an abortion procedure, which by definition is the taking of life, they should not be forced by their employer to destroy the life they pledged to protect. Protecting life should not be a partisan issue; it should be an American issue. I am proud to speak up for the millions of children who cannot speak for themselves and honor their right to life.” – Senator James Lankford
