Trump: Schumer would have fought for his party's candidate; McConnell didn't
Donald Trump thinks it's time for Senator Mitch McConnell to be removed from GOP leadership and replaced with someone who can reinvigorate the party.
Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) first introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1080) knowing the science shows a preborn baby can feel pain at 20 weeks, and likely much sooner.
If the measure is passed, abortion would be banned at that point, so Carol Tobias of the National Right to Life Committee expects opposition from the Democrats to be fierce.
"If you try stopping the abortion, even at roughly halfway through pregnancy for a humane reason, because those babies are feeling the pain when their lives are being snuffed out, they still oppose this," Tobias laments.
Smith has submitted another bill with two parts, the first of which would make permanent the Hyde Amendment, which forbids use of federal tax dollars for abortions.
"The Abortion Insurance Disclosure Act would affect people who have insurance through some ObamaCare plans that are still in effect or still being sold," the pro-lifer adds. "No federal dollars, no subsidies given to obtain insurance could be used to cover abortion in those insurance plans."
No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2021 (H.R. 18)—has more than 130 cosponsors, including a record number of congresswomen supporting the bill. Now the task is to try to find a way to get the bills heard in a Democrat-led, pro-abortion Congress.
