Unborn Babies Feel Pain
March 14th, 2012
Whereas, with the advent of sonograms and live-action ultrasound images, neonatologists and nurses are able to see unborn babies react physically to stimuli such as sound, light and touch;
Whereas, surgeons who enter the womb to perform corrective procedures on unborn babies have seen those babies flinch, jerk and recoil from sharp instruments and incisions;
Whereas, anatomical studies have documented that the body structures necessary to transmit pain are established by 20 weeks after fertilization;
Whereas, abortions that involve dismemberment of the living baby continue to be performed frequently on unborn children who can feel pain, taking their lives and causing them intense pain; and
Whereas, a number of states, including Nebraska, Kansas, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Idaho, have already passed legislation protecting paincapable unborn children from abortion;
Therefore, we the undersigned support legislation that would protect pain-capable unborn children from abortion.
