President Trump Calls for Late-Term Abortion Ban in State of the Union

President Donald Trump, during his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, criticized New York’s expansive new abortion law and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s (D) recent comments defending infanticide: There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days.  Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.  These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love

Bill Ending Late-Term Abortions Fails after 46 Senators Vote ‘No’

Yesterday, 44 Democrats and 2 Republicans voted to continue allowing the barbaric practice of legalized abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when the baby is capable of feeling excruciating pain and, as science advances, capable of surviving outside the womb. The bill, called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, was not expected to pass because the Democratic Party is in complete lockstep with the radical pro-abortion lobby. But that doesn’t make it any less shocking that there are still dozens of United States senators in 2018 who are still willing to allow late-term abortions. While these senators cower to the abortion

Senate Will Hold Vote on Late Term Abortion Ban Next Week

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced today that the Senate will vote early next week on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. It will be a high-stakes vote with heavy consequences for both parties and the country as a whole. The bill bans abortion on the basis that science shows unborn babies can feel excruciating pain during an abortion by 20 weeks, if not earlier. And by that point, the baby is so large that increasingly brutal tactics are needed to terminate it, such as dismemberment. The United States is one

President Trump, VP Pence to Pro-Life Marchers: “We Are With You”

While every day is a great day to be pro-life, this day — that of the March for Life — stands among the greatest. At the 45th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., earlier this afternoon, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers who had gathered in our nation’s capitol to call for an end to abortion were addressed by the three highest ranking men in the order of presidential succession: President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. While the crowds gathered before marching for a rally near the Washington Monument, a satellite rally was

The Late-Term Abortion Ban Will Have Trouble in the Senate — But It Shouldn’t

The U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act by a vote of 237 to 187 on Tuesday afternoon. The bill if passed into law would ban abortions after 20 weeks except to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape and incest. This bill was also passed by the House in 2015 but failed to get cloture in the Senate. On Thursday morning, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) introduced the Senate version of the bill, which seems likely to fail again even with a Republican majority in the Senate. This should not be the case, but

VICTORY: US House Votes to Protect Unborn from Abortion After 20 Weeks

On Tuesday, after heated debate on the House floor, representatives voted 237 to 189 to pass H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Sponsored by Representative Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) and co-sponsored by 182 of his colleagues, the bill would prohibit abortions after the 20-week mark, the point at which science shows the unborn feel pain. The bill’s text notes scientific research showing that at the age of 20 weeks post-fertilization, babies are capable of feeling intense pain during an abortion procedure: Pain receptors (nociceptors) are present throughout the unborn child’s entire body and nerves link these receptors to the

Pro-Abortion Report Decries “Onslaught” of Pro-Life Laws in 2017

Despite making some “positive progress,” reproductive rights at the state level have suffered many more “ongoing assaults,” according to a report released last week by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The first, and much shorter, part of the report describes the “progress” which pro-abortion activists have made in state legislatures. The developments mentioned include increased contraceptive insurance coverage, easier access to contraceptives without a prescription, and new measures focusing on opioid use among pregnant women. Only one insubstantial paragraph at the end of the section even mentions abortion: Three states also moved to protect access to abortion. Delaware enacted a comprehensive

Ohio Becomes 23rd State to Protect Unborn Children After 20 Weeks

Ohio’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act officially took effect on Tuesday, placing Ohio among a growing list of states that ban the barbaric practice of late-term abortion. Scientific evidence confirms that unborn babies feel excruciating pain during abortions at 20 weeks (though there is evidence it begins even sooner). At this point, babies are so advanced in development that the only ways to extract them from the womb are dismemberment, saline poisoning, or other brutal methods. Ohio’s law effectively puts an end to late-term abortions in the state. They are the 23rd state to pass such a law, though courts in
