    Senate to vote on banning late-term abortion, infanticide


    WASHINGTON, D.C., February 13, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Republican leadership began the process today of initiating a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions past five months of pregnancy, and the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which would require basic medical care for newborns born during failed abortions.

    Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, made a motion to begin debate on the bills. The first votes on both pieces of legislation will actually be on ending debate on the bills.

    If 60 senators vote to end debate on the bill, the Senate will vote on the bill itself. But Senate rules make it impossible to vote on a bill unless 60 senators agree that the vote should take place. (Republicans temporarily changed these rules to allow the Senate to confirm President Donald Trump’s two Supreme Court nominees; it’s likely that if Democrats regain control of the Senate they will simply change the rules again so as to be able to pass legislation with only a simple majority.)

    I don't know that the Senate has the authority to ban late term abortion. Abortion falls under State homicide law.

    It would most likely follow the same provisions of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act.

    It's one of those things that judges decide. The partial birth abortion ban prohibits a procedure, not an abortion. If the thing even passes it will become another legal spectator sport for years.

    If it passes and signed into law it will become US code.
