A judge is going to allow testimony
in the partial birth abortion case about whether a baby can feel pain during an abortion
. As a father of three children who were very sensitive to their mother's movements and food choices it is obvious to me and probably most other parents that babies are very concious to a wide variety of stimuli in the womb and no doubt experience pain. The abortion industry supporters, of course, are upset since they do not want any information that would "humanize" what they consider a lump of tissue to see light of day.
Dr. Susan Dudley, deputy director of the National Abortion Federation, "The obvious and most important thing to say is most abortions take place before 20 weeks," Dudley said. Even if the Edinburgh study is accurate, she said, "it would have very little impact on people who are contemplating an abortion." or, in other words, women who kill their babies do not care if their babies experience pain or not. I doubt that.
