The House will revisit the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
“The majority of Americans—some 59 percent according to a recent poll—support legal protection for pain-capable unborn children,” Rep. Smith (R-NJ) said, referring the Marist poll taken in late December and released in January. “Today we know that unborn babies not only die but suffer excruciating pain during dismemberment abortion—a cruelty that rips arms and legs off a helpless child. This tragic human rights abuse must end.”
Rep. Smith’s bill contains additional provisions to ensure that two physicians are present to provide care to an unborn child who survives an abortion, and states that the baby must be transported and admitted to a hospital.
