The United States is one of the few nations in the world that allows abortions up to the day of birth in some states.
These babies feel intense pain during abortions. In fact, one researcher, Dr. Steven Zielinski, an internal medicine physician from Oregon, testified before Congress that an unborn child could feel pain at “eight-and-a-half weeks and possibly earlier” and that a baby before birth “under the right circumstances, is capable of crying.”
As Congressman Trent Franks explains: "More than 18,000 ‘very late term’ abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America. These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but who can survive outside of the womb in most cases, and who are torturously killed without even basic anesthesia."
"Many of them cry and scream as they die, but because it is amniotic fluid going over their vocal cords instead of air, we don’t hear them," he says.
Unborn children have a right to life and should be protected from abortion. The House will vote on this important pro-life bill on January 22. We call on Congress to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth.
