District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

by Dustin Schwanger

In the District of Columbia, abortions can take place at any stage of pregnancy. Today, our representatives have a chance to change that. H.R. 3803, or the DC Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, will come to a vote this evening around 6:30 p.m. This bill will ban abortions for unborn babies twenty weeks or older. This is a big step in the right direction. However, in order to pass, this bill requires a two-thirds majority, which means that all House Republicans and fifty-one Democrats must vote for the bill for it to pass. Please contact your representative—Republican or Democrat—to urge them to vote for this bill.
