UPDATE: The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed the House 242-181. See how your Congressperson voted here.
Cardinal Seán O’Malley, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, recently wrote to Congress asking them to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Pennsylvanians remember well the “House of Horrors” run by Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia. In his letter, Cardinal O’Malley wrote that “This tragic circumstance led many Americans to realize that our permissive laws and attitudes have allowed the abortion industry to undertake these procedures. All decent and humane people are repulsed by the callous and barbarous treatment of women and children in Gosnell’s clinic, and in other clinics that abort children after 20 weeks.
