A bill to ban most late-term abortions of pre-born babies who are capable of feeling pain will be introduced in the Senate tomorrow. The bill will be introduced by South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, LifeSiteNews has learned.
Graham will introduce into the Senate the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which passed the U.S. House yesterday 237-189. If passed, the bill would ban most abortions after 20 weeks, when the pre-born baby can feel pain.
President Trump has promised to sign the legislation if it reaches his desk.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser called the October 3 U.S. House vote a “win for basic human decency.”
“It’s time for the pro-life majority in the Senate to bring up this bill and force vulnerable pro-abortion Senators up in 2018 to either stand with their pro-life constituents and vote for this bill, or stand with the extreme abortion lobby and vote in favor of late-term abortion-on-demand,” she said.
The bill needs 60 votes to pass the U.S. Senate. There are currently 52 Republican senators.
