    FLEMING asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. FLEMING. Madam Speaker, next week marks 41 years since the Supreme Court's ROE v. WADE decision. Nearly 57 million children have lost their lives since then. This genocide of unborn Americans must stop. Congress should respect and defend innocent human life.

    An increasing majority of Americans do not believe abortion should be legal for any reason at any time during pregnancy. Yet, the U.S. stands with the governments of North Korea and China in refusing to restrict abortion, even up to the moment of birth.

    This House, on a bipartisan vote last year, voted to acknowledge the overwhelming scientific evidence that an unborn child, being aborted after 20 weeks in the womb, experiences pain. It is past time for our colleagues in the Senate to join us in standing up for the innocent by passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
