President Obama is again showing his callousness to the will of the American public. Both Houses of Congress seem prepared to support and pass legislation that would ban late-term abortions, protecting the poor children who quite obviously feel pain in the womb, but President Obama plans to veto any such bill.
On Friday the House voted on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), which would ban all abortions after 20 weeks. Most of the world seems to understand the barbarity of allowing elective late-term abortions on demand because only 7 nations, including the USA, currently allow them.
The six other nations that allow elective abortion after 20 weeks include China, North Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Netherland, and Canada. The report notes that Singapore and the Netherlands prohibit abortion at 24 weeks and the United States prohibits abortion at the point of viability. The rest have no restrictions in law.
Fortunately, the VAST majority of Americans favor a ban on elective late term abortions.
