It is appalling that babies can be legally aborted in this country even in the final months of pregnancy. It is even more appalling when you realize the pain felt by the baby during this brutal act. The National Right to Life Committee, Wisconsin Right to Life’s parent organization, is strongly supporting the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 3803) which will have a public hearing on May 17 in the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution.
Late-term abortions in the District are openly advertised. One abortion clinic not far from the White House advertises abortion up to the beginning of the seventh month of pregnancy by the dilation and evacuation procedure where the baby is literally extracted limb by limb as the abortionist tears the baby apart. This dismemberment procedure certainly is extremely painful for the little baby. By the way, this place of horrors will complete this heinous act for money, but “checks and money orders are not accepted.”
Six states have enacted Pain-Capable laws — Nebraska, Kansas, Idaho, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Georgia. This type of legislation does not stop all abortions, but certainly takes the country in a new direction which is further recognition of the humanity of the unborn child.
