Pro-life legislation hangs in the balance

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump vowed that he would sign the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect the sanctity of human life.

Mallory Quigley, who serves with the Susan B. Anthony List, stated that voters are evidently in agreement with Trump's pro-life view. A large majority of Millennials, African Americans and Hispanics also support the pro-life proposal. Last year, the bill passed the House, but needed 60 votes in the Senate to move forward.

“Susan B. Anthony List put out the list of a new survey finding that a majority of voters – women in higher numbers than men – support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” Quigley informed. “This is legislation that limits abortion after five months, which of course, is beyond halfway through pregnancy – and it's at a point at which the unborn child demonstrably feels pain.”
