Senate Set to Vote Today on 'Pain Capable' Act That Would Ban Abortion at 20 Weeks

Will Maule : Jan 29, 2018  Faithwire.com

The Pain-Capable Act passed through the House of Representatives last October. At his recent appearance at the March for Life, President Trump urged the Senate to pass the bill and get it to his desk for signing as soon as possible.

Senator Joni Ernst, a Republican from Iowa, is one of the politicians spearheading the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which many pro-life activists have labeled Micah's law. Micah was a 5-year-old boy from Newton, Iowa who in 2012 was born at 22 weeks.

"When Micah was born, he was only about the size of a bag of M&Ms," Ernst recounted in a Thursday conference call with reporters, "and yet Micah was still a perfectly formed baby with 10 fingers and 10 toes."

"Yet there is no federal law protecting these vulnerable babies from abortion," she continued, and "as a result, every year in our country, the lives of thousands of such babies end painfully in abortion."

Activists estimate that at least 10,000 babies per year will be saved if the bill is passed. "In 2018, do we still want to be one of seven nations that allow abortion on demand at 20 weeks?" asked Senator Lindsey Graham during the press call. "It's a time in the pregnancy when young parents are encouraged to sing to the unborn child because you can recognize the parent's voice. It's a time when babies can be saved."
