Washington, D.C. — Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), made the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted today on two pro-life bills, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act:
“It is a very sad day for the unborn, and I pray God’s forgiveness over our country. Planned Parenthood and abortion extremists’ death grip have once again prevailed through the Democrat party. Today they voted to turn their backs to protect babies who feel pain or are born alive from a failed abortion. It is unconscionable that Democrats stand on the side of authoritarian regimes like China and North Korea who condone the killing of unborn children until birth and leave unwanted newborns to die. Unfortunately that is where our country’s laws stand today.
Here at CWA we believe an unwanted child is still a child. And, like us, the vast majority of Americans oppose late-term abortion and infanticide. Sadly, today’s Senate votes prove once again that Big Abortion has a stranglehold on the Democrat side of the aisle. America’s humanity suffers for it, and our prayer is that God will have mercy on us.”
