Landmark: House to vote on DC fetal pain ban

I wrote July 19 that the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (HR 3803) was in danger of not getting a vote in the House in the final days of session.

But now word comes from National Right to Life that a vote will indeed be held July 31:

Why PRENDA won but lost… but won

Yesterday the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, a bill that would ban sex-selective abortions in the U.S., garnered an overwhelming majority vote in the House, 246-168.

But PRENDA still failed. Why?

Pro-lifers will have no trouble remembering Stupak as the leader of a group of pro-life Democrats who signed on to Obamacare […]

New fetal pain bill brings late-term abortion battle to Obama’s back yard

Yesterday, as the March for Life was taking place, pro-life Arizona Congressman Trent Franks (pictured right) introduced the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
