Earlier this week, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act into law. It bans late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy when strong medical evidence indicates that unborn babies can feel pain.
Pro-abortion groups usually file lawsuits to block state abortion regulations, but they’re waffling on whether to challenge this one. Only two of the other 14 states to have Pain Capable bans — Georgia and Idaho — face legal challenges to their laws.
These laws easily save hundreds of lives. There were at least 5,770 late-term abortions at or after 21 weeks of pregnancy in 2013 in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control.
This graphic demonstrates what a totally barbaric procedure late-term abortions are.
