Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Coalition Letter

Letter to Representative Kevin McCarthy regarding the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" (H.R. 36).

Stopping brutal and painful abortions from being carried out on more than 12,000 unborn children each year is a reasonable and urgently needed step.

When the House votes on this bill, it will begin the process of fulfilling the commitments of the Republican Party platform, many Members of Congress, and President Trump —to enact legislation protecting pain-capable unborn children.
