Christian Coalition of America Strongly Supports the Graham "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act"

 

 

Christian Coalition of America commends Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC and former Representative Trent Franks, R-AZ for sponsoring this important commonsense legislation, the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” which passed in the House of Representatives on October 3, 2017 by a margin 237-189.

 

Senator Graham’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S.2311 “amends the federal criminal code to make it a crime for any person to perform or attempt to perform an abortion if the probable post-fertilization age of the fetus is 20 weeks or more.  A violator is subject to criminal penalties – a fine, up to five years in prison, or both.  The bill provides exceptions for an abortion: (1) that is necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman, or (2) when the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. A physician who performs or attempts to perform an abortion under an exception must comply with specified requirements. A woman who undergoes a prohibited abortion may not be prosecuted for violating or conspiring to violate the provisions of this bill.”

 

Roberta Combs, President and CEO, said: “Christian Coalition of America, with millions of supporters, strongly supports Senator Lindsey Graham’s “Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act, S. 2311.” It is almost beyond comprehension that the United States of America is one of only 7 nations  - including North Korea and China -   amongst 198 nations in the world which allows late term abortions.”

 

Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA said:  “At five months, we know that babies can yawn, make faces, wiggle their ten fingers and ten toes, and feel pain. At just five months gestation, Micah Pickering from Newton, Iowa proved that a baby this small is so full of life.”
