Stanek to testify for nationwide 20-week abortion ban

Sponsor to show reality of late-term abortions

Trent-FranksTomorrow pro-life Republican Congressman Trent Franks will hold a hearing in the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, where he is chairman, on the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, of which he is lead sponsor.

And now that bill has grown by leaps and bounds. Reported the Washington Post today:

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:

Congressman: Ironic that federal law protects animals more than unborn humans

The criminal code of the District of Columbia, Section 22-1001, prohibits cruelty to animals…..

This statute explicitly covers “all living and sentient creatures, human beings excepted,” if a prosecutor can prove “serious bodily injury,” or if a prosecutor can prove “to an animal or indifference to animal life, that a single offense can be punished by up to five years in prison or a fine not to exceed $25,000 or both.”

Abortion advocates say D.C. fetal pain bill could “eviscerate” Roe, make defeat a top priority

On February 21 pro-abortion advocates including District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray, Planned Parenthood African American Leadership and Engagement Director Ludwig Gaines, and District Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (pictured right) held a press conference to decry the introduction of the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the U.S. House.
