What our country needs is a national defender of life who will embrace and champion the
will of Americans. At a minimum, that means listening to the will of the people and the science by protecting unborn babies who can feel pain from abortions later than 15 weeks. States must have the right to enact stronger protections if they choose. But this is a human rights issue, and whether babies are subjected to painful late-term abortions shouldn’t be determined by whether a state is red, blue, or purple.
