Rep. Tonko Won’t Say If 20-Week-Old Unborn Child Is ‘Human Being’


Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.) would not say whether an unborn child 20 weeks into pregnancy is a human being and instead said that he wanted to see how a 5-month old baby in the womb is defined by legislation offered in  Congress.

On Capitol Hill on Tuesday,  asked Tonko, “Is an unborn child a human being 20 weeks into a pregnancy?”

“I just want to see how it’s defined in the bill,” Tonko said, referring to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,  which likely will come up for a vote in the House this  week.

Tonko then excused himself to attend other business before stepping into an  elevator.
