Washington – Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act by a vote of 242-184. Congressman Mike Conaway (TX-11), a cosponsor of this legislation, released the following statement upon passage of the legislation:

“Every child deserves to be protected and right now, that’s not always the case,” said Congressman Conaway. “This legislation takes on the important task of defending the defenseless: pain-capable unborn children. There is nothing more important than respect for the sanctity of life and after 20 weeks, babies are able to feel pain and are increasingly able to live outside the womb. While I am saddened that this legislation will not protect all unborn children, it is a start. I would urge the Senate to take up this legislation quickly so that all children capable of feeling pain are protected under our law.”
