Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

5-3-16_Pain-Capable.jpgI sign this petition in support of House Bill 117/Senate Bill 127 which protects unborn babies who feel pain from abortion. Medical evidence suggests these babies feel pain by at least 20 weeks gestation, and I urge you to protect your most vulnerable constituents.

By 20 weeks gestation, pain receptors are present throughout the baby’s body, though they first appear around 6-7 weeks gestation and babies respond to touch at just 8 weeks gestation.

Multiple polling companies demonstrate consistent, popular support for legislation which would protect pain-capable pre-born babies from abortion. Quinnipiac University’s November 2014 poll demonstrates that 60 percent of Americans support the legislation. Women and millennials support the legislation by double-digits.

The U.S. is one of 7 countries, along with North Korea and China, that allows abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Please support the passage of House Bill 117/Senate Bill 127 and help Ohio catch up with the rest of the developed world in protecting pain-capable babies.
