A new beginning (LCAction)

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has reintroduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (PCUCPA), along with 45 cosponsors, to the Senate just two days after the House passed the measure. The Senate Judiciary Committee is now reviewing the Act. Liberty Counsel Action is calling for passage of this important pro-life initiative.

+ + With a Republican-led Congress, now is the perfect time to enact this life-saving measure.

When Senator Mitch McConnell took over as Senate Majority Leader, he vowed to make the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (PCUCPA) a priority for a Senate floor vote. This is how he described the importance of the bill…

“It is time for America to join the ranks of most other developed nations around the world and restrict abortion at least at the point at which science tells us that unborn babies are capable of feeling pain.Let’s take up this important pro-life legislation and send it to the President.”

If passed by the Senate, President Trump has indicated he’ll sign it into law.

What the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act does:

This ACT prohibits an abortion from being performed if the probable post-fertilization age of the unborn child is 20 weeks or greater, unless the mother’s life is in danger or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. The bill penalizes abortion providers who perform abortions after 20 weeks, not the mother.

By twenty weeks gestation, an unborn child has pain receptors all over his or her body and reacts to external stimuli by recoiling and emitting stress hormones. Refusing to protect life after twenty weeks gestation is inhumane and barbaric.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said of the bill, “The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will protect the voiceless, the vulnerable, and the marginalized. It will protect those children who science has proven can feel pain.”

Please take a moment right now to add your name to Liberty Counsel Action’s “Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” petition campaign, which will protect the voiceless and vulnerable preborn children.

+ + Powerful opposition to this necessary and reasonable bill is mounting…

Our sources tell us that pro-abortion organizations are lobbying hard in the Senate to prevent passage of this bill. Planned Parenthood will not allow the PCUCPA to pass without fighting to protect their killing fields.

Late term abortion in America has its defenders, but no true or principled defense. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act seeks to afford basic protection to mothers and their unborn children.

+ + Protecting preborn children that feel pain is a policy that every American should get behind, no matter their position on the volatile abortion issue!
According to recent polls, over 60 percent of Americans now favor a bill that would limit abortions after the first trimester – when a child feels the pain of the procedure!

We believe that passage of the PCUCPA now is the best opportunity we’ve had in years to advance the pro-life cause. With this bill, we can begin dismantling Roe v Wade on behalf of the untold thousands of children who have been horrifically killed by late-term abortions.
Imagine the number of lives that will be saved if this bill makes it into law!

Now is the time for us to take action and get this pro-life bill passed and signed into law!
