“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.
