The House will be taking up a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks on Tuesday that President Obama has now threatened to veto.
White House advisors published their Statement of Administration Policy, informing Congress that they recommend that the president exercise his veto power on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act if it’s passed, according to LifeNews.
The news was reported by CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller in a tweet.
As its name implies, the bill is being considered on the basis of congressional testimony indicating that life within the womb is capable of feeling excruciating pain, especially in later months of pregnancy.
The most graphic testimony was offered by Dr. Anthony Levatino, am OBGYN practicing in New Mexico who had performed some 1,200 abortions. He described a typical second trimester abortion in grisly, excruciating detail.
“These procedures are brutal, by their nature,” he said.
Another bombshell dropped during the hearing came from Dr. Maureen Condic, who is Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah School of Medicine. She testified that the unborn child is capable of reacting to pain as early as 8 – 10 weeks. This is when most abortions in America take place.
Nonetheless, the White House indicated that it “strongly opposes H.R. 1797, which would unacceptably restrict women’s health and reproductive rights and is an assault on a woman’s right to choose,” according to the SAP. “Women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care, and Government should not inject itself into decisions best made between a woman and her doctor.”
Dr. Levatino closed his testimony by quoting President Obama. “If there is just one thing — one thing — that we could do that would save just one child, don’t we have an obligation to try?”
