Today, Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-07) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 1797, Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act:
"The recent and horrific crimes committed by Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia demonstrate the need to protect all women and children from unsafe and inhumane abortions. Today, the House acted to protect life and stop the dangerous practice of late-term abortions. This bipartisan measure will protect unborn children who can experience pain after 5 months. We must stand together, Republicans and Democrats alike, to protect the most vulnerable among us, especially these mothers and their innocent children."
