Will McConnell Champion the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act?

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act could be killed by the Senate Democrat minority.

The fact that the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act might not make it past the Senate proves that we haven’t yet destroyed the Democrats enough! Despite problems with establishment Republicans opposing or obstructing Donald Trump’s agenda, the GOP is still vastly superior. Also, if Democrats get beaten to the point that they no longer are a factor, then voters will be able to more effectively replace RINOs with Conservatives.

Breitbart reports, “Mitch McConnell: Late-Term Abortion Ban ‘Supported by Virtually All My Members’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act two days after it was approved by the House, and President Donald Trump’s administration has indicated it will sign the 20-week abortion ban into law if passed by both chambers of Congress.

“But, the House has passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Children Protection Act before only to see it disgracefully languish in the Senate without even a debate or fair up or down vote,” Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) – who introduced the bill in the House – wrote in an op-ed at Fox News.

McConnell told reporters, according to the Hill, during a joint press briefing with President Trump, the bill is “supported by virtually all of my members, and we expect to have a vote on it at some point.”

The Senate Majority Leader did not, however, provide a specific timeframe for the vote.

Franks has urged McConnell to call for a straight up-or-down vote on the bill, asserting the Majority Leader has “stunningly allowed Democrats to use arcane Senate rules to gridlock this incredibly reasonable pro-life bill just as they were determined to gridlock a pro-life justice like Neil Gorsuch.”

With only 52 GOP senators – and 60 votes needed for the bill’s approval – Republicans may be unlikely to convince eight of their Democratic colleagues to join with them to pass the measure.
