WASHINGTON – This week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) cosponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to provide commonsense protections for unborn children at 20 weeks after fertilization, a point at which there is scientific evidence that abortion inflicts tremendous pain on the unborn.

“Every year, thousands of unborn children are aborted after 20 weeks gestation—a point where we know, based on science, those babies can feel pain. I will always vote to defend the sanctity of life and hope that one day we will become a society that protects our most vulnerable, instead of one that permits their destruction.”
