WASHINGTON, D.C., November 7, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Nearly five months after passing the House, a bill to end abortion after 20 weeks has been introduced in the Senate.

This morning Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, introduced the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

The Act, which passed the House of Representatives in June, would ban abortions after 20 or more weeks post-gestation, with the exception of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.

Pro-life protester Linda Gibbons arrested outside Morgentaler abortion site

TORONTO, June 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Linda Gibbons, who has spent years in jail for peacefully protesting Toronto abortion clinic "bubble zone" laws, was arrested outside the “Morgentaler Clinic” abortion site in Toronto around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. The arrest took place some two and a half hours after she appeared there to begin pacing back and forth on a sidewalk with her usual placard reading, “Why mom? When I have so much love to give.”

Her lawyer, Daniel Santoro, said she was to appear in court this morning for a bail hearing and added he will be representing her in subsequent court appearances. It has been Gibbons’s practice to decline bail because conditions are added that require her to stay away from abortion sites pending trial.

Texas permanently bans taxpayer funding of abortion

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed today a bill to restrict state funding for abortion insurance.

The new law will keep Texans from having to pay for elective abortions through their insurance plans.

"As a firm believer in Texas values I am proud to sign legislation that ensures no Texan is ever required to pay for a procedure that ends the life of an unborn child," Gov. Abbott said. "This bill prohibits insurance providers from forcing Texas policy holders to subsidize elective abortions. I am grateful to the Texas legislature for getting this bill to my desk, and working to protect innocent life this special session."

HB-214, which the House passed last week and the Senate approved Sunday, applies to “elective” abortions and specifically includes an exemption for cases of medical emergency to save the mother’s life.

"What we’re saying here is: If you want to buy this coverage, you can buy it," Republican Rep. John Smithee said during the House debate. “This isn’t about who can get an abortion. It is about who is forced to pay for an abortion.”

“Texas must take steps to prohibit taxpayer and premium dollars from subsidizing abortions that are not medically necessary,” Republican Sen. Brandon Creighton said.
