The US House has passed the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” by a vote of 237 to 189. Only three Democrats voted for HR 36 — none from PA! This bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks, when research has shown a baby feels pain. The US is only one of seven nations that allow babies in the womb to be ripped apart limb by limb. The bill now goes to the US Senate, where its prospect of passing does not look good.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end abortion after the point when scientists agree unborn children can feel pain, has passed in the House by a mostly partisan vote of 228-196. HR 1797 notes, “By 8 weeks after fertilization, the unborn child reacts to touch. After 20 weeks, the unborn child reacts to stimuli that would be recognized as painful if applied to an adult human, for example, by recoiling.”
