Here is the opening of a recent LifeNews.com story about a bill (The DC Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act) that was introduced to ban abortion in DC after 20 weeks.
“Rep. Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican, has introduced a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy based on scientific evidence showing unborn children feel pain. Frank is the sponsor of the D.C. Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which would ban abortion in the District of Columbia after 20 weeks gestation, based on scientific research that shows unborn children feel pain past that point in development. Currently in the District, abortion is permitted for any reason until the moment of birth.”
