Washington, D.C. — Today, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act in the Senate. This legislation would make elective abortion after 20 weeks post-conception illegal and require fully born children from a failed abortion to be given medical attention.
Penny Nance, CEO and President, of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee had this to say:
“America is one of seven countries that allows elective abortion after 20 weeks. We are in the company of some of the most egregious violators of human rights, including China and North Korea.
“It is time for the abortion laws of the United States to catch up with the rest of the civilized world.
“Science is too advanced to ignore the fact that the unborn child feels pain at 20 weeks post-conception. When fetal surgery is performed, both the mother and the unborn child are given medicine to control pain. The science cannot be denied and should not be disregarded.
“The passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is about our basic humanity. Anything short of support requires medical science and human decency to be willfully and radically ignored.
“It is time for America’s laws on abortion to catch up to the reality of modern medicine.”
