Congressman Duncan's Statement on H.R. 36
"Yesterday I joined my colleagues in supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R.36, sponsored by Congressman Franks.  This bill would protect an unborn child old enough to feel pain from being aborted.  Evidence indicates an unborn baby is able to feel pain at 20 weeks old," said Duncan.   "I wish no one ever had to face an unwanted pregnancy, but I think that most people who oppose abortion want pregnant women to realize that there are other and better options.  I believe children are gifts from God and should be treasured," added Duncan.   Click Here For Full Bill Text
