H.R. 36: Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 36 (114th) in the House.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would ban abortion at 20 weeks and later. The bill includes congressional recognition that an unborn child of 20 weeks has developed pain receptors and responds to painful stimuli as reasoning behind the ban. It creates exceptions in the case of risk of death or permanent injury of the mother, in case of rape, and in the case of incest against a minor. In cases of rape or incest, the rape or incest must be reported to a law enforcement agency prior to the abortion. The woman who the abortion is performed on could not be prosecuted under the act. The bill has been passed by the House.
