Hultgren Backs Measure to Protect Unborn Children

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Randy Hultgren (IL-14) released the following statement in support of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), scheduled for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives today.

"I was deeply shaken by the horrific accounts of Dr. Kermit Gosnell's late-term abortion practices. These gruesome acts need to be barred," said Hultgren. "It is our duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves. I am proud to cosponsor and support this legislation and fight to protect unborn children."

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797) introduced by Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-08) safeguards women and unborn children by limiting abortion past 20 weeks. At 20 weeks, evidence has revealed that unborn children are capable of feeling pain and late-term abortions are increasingly risky to the mother. H.R. 1797 extends nationwide the laws of 11 states that already limit late-term abortions.

"We must do everything in our power to protect the lives of children and mothers across the nation. This is not a political issue. It is our moral obligation to respect all life from the moment it begins," Hultgren added.
