CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Michael Burbidge of Arlington (VA), chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, has lent his support to the Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act.
In a letter thanking Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for the legislation, Bishop Burbidge described the bill, which would “protect the right to life of preborn babies from 15 weeks’ gestation,” as a step toward “fulfilling the ultimate imperative that all preborn children be protected from the moment of conception and that mothers be supported.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
