U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today joined Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and 42 other Senators to reintroduce the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The legislation would provide common-sense protections for unborn children at 20 weeks after fertilization, a point at which there is significant scientific evidence that abortion inflicts tremendous pain on the unborn. Senator Young was a cosponsor of this legislation in the last Congress.
“It is unconscionable that the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that allows abortions past 20 weeks, the point at which science tells us that an unborn child can experience pain. I have always been a champion for life and I will never stop working to defend the lives of innocent children,” said Senator Young.
