The House Judiciary Committee recently passed a bill to protect unborn infants who are considered capable of feeling pain and are viewed as potentially “viable” outside the womb. Some observers noted that in modern, neonatal intensive-care units, viability is considered to start at 20-24 weeks.
Yet, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi ( of California) spoke out to condemn the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which is designed to prohibit late-term abortions during the final four months of pregnancy, with exceptions for the physical health of the mother.
When a reporter asked the California Bay Area Representative what moral difference is there between the infanticide at the hand of Dr. Kermit Gosnell of Pennsylvania, who killed babies born alive, and selectively terminating the lives of those same infants even moments before birth, Pelosi refused to answer.
The full House is expected to vote on this bill soon. Let your representatives know your opinion about “late-term abortions”!
