Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act protects babies who are capable of feeling pain.  Currently, scientific evidence points to about 20 weeks that babies are able to feel pain.  This legislation has been upheld by the courts. As science advances, we can use this legislation to protect even more babies.

Additionally, by showing how babies can feel pain during an abortion, we can educate the public about the humanity of unborn children which leads to more mothers choosing life.

This is the number one legislative priority of the Virginia Society for Human Life.
