Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

 

Wilson stated, “In recent weeks, we have watched in horror as details emerged of Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s criminal procedures that resulted in the murder of children and endangerment of women. By passing today’s legislation, House Republicans are recognizing the reality of these heinous crimes and ensuring that our women and children are not exposed to this kind of danger again. The set of laws that govern this Nation, allowing every American to exercise our freedoms, are in place to protect us and must be extended to cover the innocent unborn.  As a proud original co-sponsor of this bill and an individual who believes that life begins at conception, it is my hope that the Senate will continue our efforts and pass this legislation to put an end to the threats late-term abortions impose on our unborn children and mothers.
