Barletta Fights to Protect Life, Votes for Micah’s Law

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) voted for a bill led by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz) that restricts abortions 20 weeks or more after conception. Science has proven that unborn children of 20 weeks are capable of feeling pain; however, federal law still permits the late-term abortions of babies. Commonly referred to as “Micah’s Law,” H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act of 2017,is named after Micah Pickering from Iowa City, Iowa. Now 5 years old, Micah was born at 22 weeks in July 2012. The House of Representatives passed “Micah’s Law” by a vote of 237 to 189, and it now heads to the Senate for a vote.

“As a cosponsor of ‘Micah’s Law,’ I believe every baby has a right to life,” said Barletta. “America should be a country that protects the most vulnerable among us, but right now that is not the case. Unfortunately we remain one of only seven countries worldwide who allow late term abortions. My faith and personal experience watching what my daughter went through as she struggled to finally become pregnant with my twin grandchildren reinforced the importance of protecting and honoring life. Medical professionals agree that an unborn baby of 20 weeks can feel pain. Protecting the unborn from needless suffering should already be on the books. I now urge the Senate to stand for the most vulnerable Americans and vote for this bill to give millions of unborn children a chance to live.”

The vote comes four years after the infamous abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell from Philadelphia, PA was found guilty of murdering three babies who were born alive during a late term abortion procedure by severing the victim’s spinal cords. Fallout from his initial arrest in 2011 uncovered that none of Pennsylvania’s 22 abortion clinics had been inspected by the state government for more than 15 years.

Similar health related issues caused the closure of embattled abortion clinic Hillcrest Women’s Medical Center in Harrisburg, PA. The Harrisburg facility neither had a registered nurse on staff, nor were they in compliance with the Child Protective Services Law. Pennsylvania’s state health department reviewed 12 patient records and found all 12 patients went without nursing care. This was the fourth time the facility was cited for major health care violations in only six years.
