U.S. House of Representatives to Vote January 22 on Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act!

Missouri Right to Life and National Right to Life stand together in support of HR 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. We urge our Missouri Delegation to vote in support of this very important pro-life legislation as proposed by National Right to Life. Please contact your congressperson today and encourage them to support HR 36.

WASHINGTON (January 14, 2015) -- 
The Republican leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives indicates that it intends to bring a major pro-life bill to the House floor for a vote onThursday, January 22, 2015.


The bill is the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), which would extend general protection from abortion to unborn children nationwide beginning at 20 weeks fetal age, based on congressional recognition that by this point in development, if not earlier, the unborn child is capable of experiencing pain.  H.R. 36, sponsored by Reps. Trent Franks (R-Az.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tn.), is based on model legislation developed by National Right to Life that has already been enacted in 10 states.


Please click here to visit the NRLC Legislative Action Center, where an easy-to-use tool will assist you in quickly sending an e-mail message to your representative in the U.S. House, urging him or her to cosponsor H.R. 36 and to vote to advance the bill on January 22.

Note: In the U.S. Senate, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) plans to introduce the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act very soon.  To send an email message to your two U.S. senators, urging them to sign on as original cosponsors of this vital legislation, please click here.
