BlumOGRThis week, Congressman Rod Blum (R-Iowa) joined a bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives to pass H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  If enacted, this legislation would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks – the time after which babies can feel pain – with exceptions to protect the lives of mothers. The Congressional Budget Office estimates this legislation will lead to 2,500 lives saved each year.

“As the father of five children, I understand the precious joy children bring to the world.  I firmly believe it is my responsibility to protect the sanctity of life and to help those who cannot assist themselves,” Congressman Blum stated.  “I cannot imagine why the opponents to this bill support permitting abortionists to inflict pain on an unborn baby who has the ability to feel.”

Blum co-sponsored the measure introduced by Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) in January. Passage of this legislation marks the second anniversary of the conviction of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was found killing of killing children born alive in his clinic and taking the life of an adult parent.
