Congress voted Tuesday night to pass H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The law would ban abortion after 20 weeks except for cases of rape or incest, a life-endangering physical condition or when medically necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman, in which case “the abortion must be performed by the method most likely to allow the child to be born alive unless this would cause significant risk to the mother.”
The House has passed versions of this bill, most recently in 2015, and earlier this week President Donald Trump formally endorsed this latest version.
