Representative Mayberry Files First Pro-Life Bill of Session

Rep. Andy Mayberry (R-Hensley) has filed the first pro-life bill of the session.

H.B. 1037, also known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, prohibits abortion once an unborn child is capable of feeling pain—roughly twenty weeks into a pregnancy—except to save the life of the mother or prevent “substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function.”

The bill has more than fifty sponsors in the House of Representatives, meaning if it makes it out of the House Public Health Committee, it is bound to pass the entire House.


Planned Parenthood Sets New Record on Number of Abortions

Planned Parenthood has released a report showing it did a record-setting 333,964 abortions during its 2011-2012 fiscal year.

During that same time, only 2,300 Planned Parenthood customers were referred to adoption agencies.

Estimating that as many as 1 million unborn children are aborted nationwide each year, Planned Parenthood performed at least one out of three abortions in America last year.
