20-Week Abortion Ban Passes House, Faces Uphill Battle in Senate

President Donald Trump walks from Marine One across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Wednesday Sept. 27 2017 as he returns from Indianapolis

James Lankford (R-OK), who was also present, for his continued support of the measure. A federal ban would standardize restrictions similar to ones in 17 states that ban abortions around 20 weeks of gestation.

It would make it a crime to perform or attempt an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, with the possibility of a fine, up to five years in prison or both.

President Trump already supported stricter regulation on abortion during his campaign.

Congressman Trent Franks has authored four extraordinarily important bills over the years to actually protect pain-capable babies in federal law from the violence of abortion including Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Acts that passed the House of Representatives in 2013 and again in 2015.

Republicans have pushed a bill through the House outlawing most late-term abortions. "Twenty states have passed their own Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Acts". Congress should enact legal protections for pain-capable unborn children to stop those like Gosnell who continue to dissect these unborn children apart.

"It's a test of our basic humanity and who we are as a human family", said Franks, who said it is now "time for the Senate to take a stand". That is why the bill before us today is "Micah's Law".

Women would not be penalized for seeking an abortion under the bill.

Gosnell was exposed aborting late-second and third trimester babies alive and murdering them by snipping their spinal cords with scissors. "This is an issue that Trump voters support". Others suggest that state-level laws imposing standards on abortion clinics and the procedure of abortion may have helped drive down the rate of abortion.

"The position, asserted by some physicians, that the unborn child is incapable of experiencing pain until a point later in pregnancy than 20 weeks after fertilization (predominantly) rests on the assumption that the ability to experience pain depends on the cerebral cortex and requires nerve connections between the thalamus and the cortex", the Pain-Capable Bill acknowledges. The vast majority of the American people support this life-saving legislation, and Democrats should come on board in support, especially if they are up for re-election in 2018.

"Ending the risky and violent practice of late-term abortions should not be controversial", Johnson said in a statement. GOP Whip Sen. John Cornyn was asked Monday if the chamber would take up the legislation.

"The doctor informed them that infants with this condition very rarely survive more than a few days after delivery", Ms. Watson Coleman said. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund called it "dangerous" and another attempt to restrict women's access to safe abortions. Although Attorney General Mark Herring has said such a ban is likely unconstitutional, we can not trust a Trump court to respect Roe v. Wade.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case in 2014 involving Arizona's 20-week abortion ban, which was blocked by lower courts.

Left-leaning websites such as Vox claim the bill infringes on women's right to control their bodies. It would make exceptions for the life of the mother, and for pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest.

"In fact, the best available science shows that fetuses probably can not feel pain until well after 20 weeks", she claimed.

Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, said the bill is meant to protect unborn babies, but it is also "an educational tool". In passing the bill on to the GOP-led Senate, the House succeeded in moving President Donald Trump's agenda forward while giving the Senate an opportunity to begin redeeming itself.

"If we have any historical memory, we know science is a fickle handmaiden", she wrote. Illinois Rep. Daniel Lipinski, from the 3rd Congressional District of Illinois and cosponsor of the bill, voted yes on passage of the 20-week abortion ban.

"The big hurdle for us is going to be in the Senate, where we don't have quite enough of a pro-life majority to reach the 60-vote threshold", said Mallory Quigley, the spokeswoman.
