House Says It Will Vote on 20 Week Abortion Ban

House Says It Will Vote on 20 Week Abortion Ban May 12, 2015

Pray to God that this actually happens.

From Life News:

LifeNews has confirmed that the House of Representatives this week will indeed vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act — the bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks, on the anniversary of the conviction of Kermit Gosnell. That anniversary and the vote will take place on Wednesday.

On this day two years ago, Gosnell was found guilty of killing Baby A, Baby C and Baby D by snipping their necks in brutal abortion-infanticides still legal in the United States. He was also convicted on hundreds of lesser charges ranging from infanticide to running a corrupt organization.

Leading pro-life groups are working hard to generate calls and emails to members of Congress to support the bill.

National Right to Life told LifeNews: “The bill is the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), which would extend general protection from abortion to unborn children beginning at 20 weeks fetal age — nationwide.  This bill could save the lives of thousands of babies each year.  This federal bill was developed from model legislation developed by National Right to Life, which has been enacted so far in 11 states.”

  1. It does not sound as though you expect it to pass by a veto-proof margin. I seriously doubt Obama will sign on.

  2. I just checked the text of the bill, too, afraid that there would be an exception allowing for disabled babies, already so vulnerable to abortion, to still be killed after 20 weeks. Nope! This bill protects even those babies! I really hope this passes. But will it be vetoed if it does, do you think? I can’t believe our country allows abortions so late. None of our peers in the developed world do. There is just no excuse.

  3. If it does pass it will never be signed, it only helps pro abortion to demonize you as oppressors of women….and it will work.

  4. This is exactly why we need more pro life Democrats. if we give the Rs a hegemony in order to pass laws like this, we will also give them the power to enforce corporatism absolutely. Both parties are far too evil for one of them to have absolute power.

  5. I’ll reserve my Alleluia for when it is actually signed into law, or passes with a veto-proof majority.

    Because I really think Obama, if he wants to keep his kickback bribes from Planned Parenthood, will veto this.

  6. Most of the pro-life Democrats sold out the unborn to get Obamacare. As a result, their pro-life constituents replaced them with Republicans. Neither party usually supports the working people of this country, although the Senate Democrats finally did so when they blocked fast track trade legislation over the issue, if I heard properly, of foreign currency manipulation. About time someone stood up for the rest of us.

  7. Glad to know that at least a couple of countries have the limit of 12 weeks—which has always been what I have felt personally should be the cut off.
