Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) released the following statement after the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed the House of Representatives, a bill he co-sponsored.

“This bill protects the sanctity of life which is of the upmost importance. This bill makes great strides in protecting unborn babies and advancing the pro-life movement. I look forward to the Senate taking up this measure, passing it into law, and saving countless lives across the country.”

Rep. Warren Davidson is a co-sponsor to Rep. Trent Franks (AZ-08) H.R. 36 Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. First introduced in 2015, the bill would end late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when scientists have determined that unborn babies are able to feel pain inside the womb, some as early as 18 weeks. Exceptions to this bill are for cases of rape, incest or to save a mother’s life.
