Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee Supports Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee Supports Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
By: CWALAC Staff - 6/18/2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. -The House of Representatives is expected to vote on H.R 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, later this evening. Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee(CWALAC), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, says in the brief statement below that the act helps end late-term abortion and protects women and children in utero:

“This is a monumental moment in history, a day that we truly get to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves, who we know can feel pain and respond to their mother’s voice, who hiccup and are starting to grow hair.

This bill is being driven by women. This debate is being driven by women. CWA has directly reached out to 250,000 of our members and encouraged them to speak to their members of Congress, and we know they’re doing that.

Concerned Women for America ran a focus group of women and found that the majority of those diverse women were for “common sense regulation” like banning late-term abortion. The majority of American people are against late-term abortion. It is only those who continue to place politics and so-called “progress” above the health of women who are against defending these babies who flinch away from the devices used to terminate their lives – babies who get the same protection under our constitutionally granted rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

We are on the right side of history today.

Those who today vote against HR 1797 are voting for the worst in our society – the Kermit Gosnells and their reckless disregard of the safety of women and children. Scientific fact and public opinion are in favor of this bill. The American public overwhelming opposes the abortion of babies after 20 weeks. Concerned Women for America and others call on Congress to support H.R. 1797, the most important pro-life bill to be considered by the U.S. House of Representatives in the last 10 years. Science is on OUR side; science has advanced to show us what babies look like in utero and, as Rep. Marsha Blackburn said, “Technology has advanced and so should our laws to protect women and children.”
