Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Representative Martha Roby from Alabama spoke passionately for the unborn as the House considered the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Here’s a clip:

[Audio Clip] Rep. Martha Roby: We’re here to speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves; we’re here to defend those who can’t defend themselves. Our bill seeks to do this by restricting abortions after 20 weeks, or at the sixth month of pregnancy, the point at which research shows the unborn baby can feel pain. What’s the difference between a baby born at six months outside the womb and a baby at six months inside the womb?

Now it’s time for senators to stand and speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.
