Congressman Jim Banks spoke in support of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03) spoke on the House floor Monday about his support for H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Banks said: “I rise today to voice my strong support for H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This bill would prohibit any elective abortion attempt on an unborn child who is 20 weeks or older, the age at which research shows us children are able to feel pain. Banks also stated: “I think it is worth noting that this landmark legislation is projected to save between 12,000 and 18,000 lives each year. These are lives of individuals who will become fathers, mothers, technological innovators, service-members, and hard-working contributors to our great nation.”
