House Passes 20-Week Abortion Ban

Today the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" (HR 1797) authored by Trent Franks (R-AZ) passed the House by a vote of 228-196, mostly along party lines.  LifesiteNews has more commentary and the roll call.  There was some "crossing of the aisle"on both sides.  I regret that Eric Cantor decided to add the usual "rape and incest" canards to the bill, in essence denying the right to life for those so conceived.

The Messiah Most Miserable has threatened to veto the bill should it reach his desk, uttering some nonsense about "trampling".  Meanwhile it is he who has trampled all over unborn children by opposing partial birth abortion bans, smooching up to Planned Parenthood, etc etc.

Harry Reid will most likely never let a comparable bill get to the Senate floor.  This is why we must change the composition of both Congressional houses in 2014 - and that means GOP leadership.
