Pain-Capable Bill: Any ‘No’ Vote, Republican or Democrat, Is a Vote to Torture Children
Science Has Proven 20-Week-Old Unborn Babies Feel Pain
(CLIFTON, VA) – Ahead of the Senate taking up the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, ForAmerica President David Bozell released the following statement:
“Reasonable people can disagree on the larger issue of abortion, but science has proven that 20-week-old babies in the womb can feel the pain and torture of being aborted.
“The House, addressing the scientific community’s concerns and consensus, has passed the Pain-Capable Act three times. President Trump has publicly stated his eagerness to sign this legislation.
“Any ‘no’ vote, Republican or Democrat, is a vote to torture children. The United States is one of seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Today, the Senate has the chance to change that.”
The New York Times called ForAmerica “One of the great unexpected influences of the [2016 Presidential] election.”
