Yesterday the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

We recently wrote about this good, pro-life bill. It protects unborn children by generally prohibiting abortion after the twentieth week of pregnancy, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. It is similar to a pro-life law the Arkansas Legislature passed in 2013.

All four of Arkansas’ congressmen — Reps. Crawford, Hill, Womack, and Westerman — co-sponsored this bill, and all four of them voted for it yesterday.

The House approved the bill by a vote of 237 to 189, with 7 representatives not voting. It now goes to the U.S. Senate for consideration. President Trump has indicated he would sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act if it reached his desk.

Take Action: Contact your U.S. Congressman, and thank him for supporting this good bill. His contact information is below.
