Today, U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) supported the Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act which passed in the House of Representatives with a vote of 237-189.

“As a society, it is our duty to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and allow them the right to be born,” Luetkemeyer said. “I have been a lifelong supporter of the unborn and I am proud to cosponsor and support today’s legislation that will ban abortions past 20 weeks. I hope the Senate and President Trump act quickly to stand up for the unborn and make this important legislation the law of the land.”

This legislation would ban abortions on unborn children capable of feeling pain 20 weeks after fertilization, with an exception for instances of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is at stake.
