Heritage to ‘key vote’ 20-week abortion bill

An influential conservative group is pushing House Republicans to vote in favor of a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks.

Heritage Action for America said it will “key vote” the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which comes up for a vote in the House Tuesday.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), would make it a crime to perform or attempt an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Penalties would include a fine, up to five years in prison, or both.
