WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Hill) — The House plans to vote next week on a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks.

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced Tuesday that the House would vote on the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” on Oct. 3.

The bill last passed the House in 2015 but was blocked by Senate Democrats. 

“Not only will passing this legislation keep a promise we made, but all the work is for the same goal: ending suffering and helping people live,” McCarthy said at a press conference.
