Pro-lifers: Let's hear it for the states!
Getting Congress to move pro-life legislation to the president's desk has been a struggle because of the lack of sufficient votes in the Senate to pass the bills. Ingrid Durin, director of the National Right to Life Committee's Department of State Legislation, tells OneNewsNow the success in getting laws passed has been in state legislatures.
"Now we have 16 states that have passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act," she shares. "This is a law that would protect unborn children from abortion who are capable of feeling pain – and it's only been enjoined in one state, which is Idaho."
States have also been successful in passing fetal homicide laws, which say that if a pregnant woman is attacked and the child is also injured the alleged criminal will face two charges.
