This week, pro-life Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal signed SB 766, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy based on the science showing unborn children feel pain at that point.
Governor Jindal said, “It is incumbent upon us to protect the weakest and most vulnerable among us, and these new laws will protect innocent human life.”
The measure, authored by Senate President John Alario (R-Westwego), passed by a margin of 96-0 in the state House and it protects unborn children 20 weeks old (post-fertilization) and older based on the scientific evidence showing that the unborn child can feel pain at 20 weeks.
