Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Circulated for Support
know that unborn children as young as 20 weeks (5 months) can feel pain?
Yesterday, State Senator Mary Lazich and I circulated the
Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,
which acknowledges scientific evidence supporting the pain capability of
unborn babies, and protects them from the
barbaric procedures so often used to end their lives.
In the 1973 landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, the high
court recognized a state’s compelling interest in preserving life after the
"point of viability," or when the child is likely to survive outside the
mother (usually near the end of the 2nd trimester). The court did not say,
however, that viability is the only compelling reason to preserve
life. Thus, I believe we have a duty and a moral obligation to protect these
children from the horrific, painful procedures used to snuff out their
lives. The barbaric dismemberment and mutilation of little children is
something that no humane society should tolerate.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS)
89 innocent, unborn children were
aborted after 20 weeks of pregnancy (5 months). This bill is necessary
because unborn babies can feel pain. The procedures used to abort babies at
this term of pregnancy are astonishingly barbaric, involving limb by limb
dismemberment of the child's growing body. I will not stand idly by while
these painful horrors are performed on our society's most vulnerable. This
bill is free from exceptions or "carve-outs," affirming that in no
circumstance should a child be subjected to such torture. Please join me in
support of this measure to protect Wisconsin's precious, unborn children
from senseless pain and suffering.
