Gibbs votes to protect the unborn

| October 13, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – After voting in favor of H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, also known as Micah’s Law, Congressman Bob Gibbs released the following statement:

“The majority of Americans favor a ban on abortions at 20 weeks, the stage at which an unborn child has the biological ability to feel pain. Yet the United States is one of only seven nations in the world to allow elective abortions at that stage of development. This bill provides protections for lives that science has proven viable and capable of feeling the abortion being performed on them. We as a nation must recognize our responsibility to protect the most vulnerable among us and provide every life the opportunity to thrive.”

H.R. 36 is supported by: National Right to Life, March for Life, Susan B. Anthony List, Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Knights of Columbus, Americans United for Life, Students for Life, Christian Legal Society, American Family Association, American Center for Law and Justice, Population Research Institute, and Heritage Action.
