Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) Praises Passage of Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-02) praised the passage of H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act:

“Today, I was proud to vote to end the horrific act of abortion after 20-weeks when science has proven an unborn fetus can feel pain.

When I ran for Congress, I made a commitment to the people of the Second Congressional District of West Virginia that I would do everything in my power to defend the unborn. 

I continue to be guided by my faith and values and look forward to working with my colleagues to defend the innocent and give a voice to the voiceless,” said Rep. Mooney.

Congressman Mooney has been a champion of pro-life issues while in Congress. He is the lead sponsor of the Life at Conception Act (H.R. 681). He has also cosponsored important pro-life legislation including: the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act (H.R. 7), Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 37), The Defund Planned Parenthood Act (H.R. 354),  End Trafficking of the Terminated Unborn Act (H.R. 524), and Conscience Protection Act (H.R. 644).
