Declaring “Each life is a gift from God,” Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is calling for swift action in the U.S. Senate on a pain-capable abortion ban that passed the House of Representatives this week.
Each life is a gift from God.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 4, 2017
Without life, there is no liberty, which is why I remain proudly and steadfastly dedicated to defending the lives of the unborn. #Stand4Life— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 4, 2017
Yesterday, the House passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 4, 2017
It's a measure that would ban abortions at the point that unborn babies can feel pain— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 4, 2017
This legislation is a crucial step to recognizing the sanctity of life— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 4, 2017
The House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Tuesday, which would penalize abortionists who perform abortions after 20 weeks with up to five years in prison and/or fines.
The bill now heads to the U.S. Senate, where Democrats are likely to stop the bill from reaching the 60 votes it needs to pass.
