Good news in the fight to protect human life. It's a positive development in the battle against a culture bent on denying the humanity of the preborn.
The Wisconsin Assembly passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act on Thursday.
From Wisconsin Right to Life:
"Wisconsin Right to Life thanks the Assembly for passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act today," stated Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. "We are thrilled that this historic and lifesaving bill will be signed into law."
Substantial medical evidence demonstrates that unborn children are capable of experiencing pain by 20 weeks after fertilization at the latest. At this time, all the physical structures necessary to experience pain have developed. Abortion methods used at 20 weeks and further into pregnancy, most commonly the D&E method where the child is dismembered limb by limb, are extremely painful to the unborn child.
Eleven states effectively protect pain-capable unborn children, and Wisconsin is now well on its way to becoming the twelfth.
"We thank the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act's authors Senator Mary Lazich and Representatives Jesse Kremer, Joe Sanfelippo, and Joan Ballweg for their leadership on this bill," continued Weininger. "These leaders recognize the compelling state interest in protecting the lives of pain-capable unborn children, and now we will soon protect up to 89 babies a year from the pain of abortion."
Scott Walker, soon-to-be officially declared candidate for president of the United States, shared his thanks with the members of the Assembly responsible for passing the legislation.

When it comes to the abortion debate, we need to rely on science.
It is unacceptable for pro-abortion proponents, like Obama and other Leftists, to use euphemisms and outright lies when supporting the slaughter of the preborn.
Let's just be honest.
Let's tell the truth.
