The US House will once again be voting to ban abortions after 20 weeks. This has passed in the House twice before, but failed in the US Senate. However, now we have a President who has promised to sign this legislation if it reaches his desk. The “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” would ban abortions after babies in the womb can feel pain — 20 weeks. There are only seven nations in the world that allow abortions after 20 weeks, these include China, North Korea and the United States. What a tragedy that the US shares this terrible distinction with dictatorships!

House leadership seems afraid to present HB 1948 for a final vote. A rally to “encourage” them to do what’s right is planned in the Main Rotunda of the Capitol Building for Tuesday, June 7th from 11:00 a.m. till noon. HB 1948 would extend Pennsylvania’s ban on abortions from six month to five months gestation and would ban the gruesome practice of dismemberment abortions.
