Senator David Perdue Supports Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today cosponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which protects unborn babies after 20 weeks. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is the lead sponsor. The bill has 45 cosponsors in the Senate and passed the House with a 242-184 vote. 

“Our nation must do more to protect innocent life and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is an important step to protect the unborn when they can feel physical pain. It is critical that we continue to fight on behalf of those who can’t fight for themselves. 

“Georgians are passionate about protecting the sanctity of life, and I will continue to make sure those values are reflected in the U.S. Senate.”
