Abortion Permitted Due to Circumstances of Conception
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, May 11, 2015 (Cincinnati, OH): Congress plans to attempt a vote again this week on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, to ban late-term abortion of babies after 20 weeks gestation, when most scientists agree that unborn children can feel pain.
The House of Representatives plans to vote on the bill this week near the date of the conviction of notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
However, the bill’s protections for late-term pre-born babies from death by gruesome dismemberment again do not apply to babies conceived in rape or incest, even though they feel pain the same as any other baby.
“When abortion of babies conceived in rape or incest is accepted, women are devalued and children born under such circumstances are condemned as unworthy of life,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “This injustice must end.“
Rebecca Kiessling, Esq., founder and president of Save the 1, and conceived in rape, said, “I’m completely appalled that children like me who were conceived in rape are still targeted within the current Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
We are in fact capable of feeling pain like everyone else. Congress needs to focus on punishing rapists instead of innocent children. “
ACTION: Please contact your Congressional representative to ensure that the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act protects all babies from late-term abortion regardless of the circumstances of their conception.
No unborn child should die, nor their mother bear the burden of their death, due to the crime of the father such as rape or incest.
