Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) joined Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) today in re-introducing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill which would protect unborn children after 20 weeks, or five months of pregnancy, when researchers say these lives can feel pain. The bill, on which Senator McCain is an original co-sponsor, was recently passed by the House of Representatives.
“As a proud, lifetime pro-life supporter, I believe we must do everything we can to protect the defenseless unborn children who cannot speak for themselves,” said Senator McCain. “This bill would put an end to abortion procedures after 20 weeks, when unborn children can feel pain and make movements like sucking their thumbs and yawning. As one of just seven countries that still allows abortions after 20 weeks – alongside rogue nations such as China and North Korea – it is past time for the United States to take a stand for the unborn and the cause of protecting life.”
Senator McCain was an original co-sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act when it was first introduced in the Senate during the 113th Congress.
