New national poll shows overwhelming support for Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

A nationwide telephone poll take Election Day by the polling company, inc./WomanTrend for the Susan B. Anthony List found almost two-thirds support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act—well more than double those who opposed.

Sixty-four percent were in favor to only 28% who were opposed.

Among his commitments to pro-lifers, President-elect Donald Trump has promised to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

The House of Representatives passed the measure on May 13, 2015, by a vote of 242-184.

This legislation is based on a model bill originated by NRLC in 2010, which has since been enacted in 14 states.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act extends general protection to unborn children who are at least 20 weeks beyond fertilization (which is equivalent to 22 weeks of pregnancy — about the start of the sixth month).
