Vocal Point-Monica Burke

Recently, the House of Representatives passed a bill to disallow abortions after 20 weeks because of the pain the unborn children feel. However, this bill did not pass the Senate. The Heritage Foundation notes: “The U.S. is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortion past 20 weeks, when science shows unborn babies can feel pain. The majority of Americans want abortion restricted to—at most—the first trimester. This is not novel or controversial policy as more than a dozen states across the country have 20-week bans on abortion.” Monica Burke of the Heritage Foundation joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the “Pain Capable Bill” that was defeated. www.heritage.org
