We Can Kill Unborn Children Because They Don’t Feel Pain

by Nathan A. Cherry, 08/08/2012

Many in the media and among pro-abortion advocates are clinging to the flawed belief that an unborn child, at 20 weeks, cannot feel pain. In the wake of at least 9 states enacting Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act’s, pro-abortion advocates are getting nervous and looking for ways to stem the tide of pro-life laws being enacted. In an effort to defeat the bill in D.C. to stop abortion on demand up to the moment of birth, which was ultimately defeated, pro-abortion advocates argued that the logic and science of these bills is flawed. LifeNews.com reports on the comments made by a Harvard Law Professor: “Cohen, like many in the mainstream media, claims science does not support the notion that the unborn can feel pain at 20 weeks. He does his best to portray the debate as being between the scientific community and know-nothing pro-life activists. TheChronicle of Higher Education ran a useful article in the summer of 2011 detailing the debate within the scientific community on this issue. The article cited a number of prominent neonatal and pediatric researchers, none of whom are involved with the pro-life movement, who argue that the unborn can feel pain at 20 weeks.” Click here for original article.
