Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017, the Republican controlled U.S. House of Representative passed HR36 the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. HR36 would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy with exceptions for cases of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is at risk.
Congressman Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, voted in favor of the bill.
“Micah’s Law gives more children like Micah Pickering the opportunity to experience life and ends the barbaric practice of painfully killing unborn children who, if given the chance, can live a healthy life outside a mother’s womb,” Brooks said.
