Indiana Republican Representatives Vote to Protect Pain-Capable Babies from Abortion

June 18, 2013

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect babies capable of feeling pain from abortion. All seven Indiana Republican representatives cosponsored and voted in support of the legislation.

“We applaud Reps. Susan Brooks (IN-5), Larry Buschon (IN-8), Luke Messer (IN-6), Todd Rokita (IN-4), Marlin Stutzman (IN-3), Jackie Walorski (IN-2) and Todd Young (IN-9) for protecting innocent human life from a horrific abortion procedure when they are capable of feeling pain,” stated Becky Rogness, Communications Director for Indiana Right to Life. “These unborn babies should not suffer by the abortionist’s hand when they will feel the procedure. The passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a positive step forward in valuing our country’s unborn children and will help prevent future atrocities like the kind uncovered in the Kermit Gosnell ‘House of Horrors.'”

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will prohibit abortions nationwide after 20 weeks gestation. The bill passed by a vote of 228-196.

Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.
