Proposed Law Acknowledges the Obvious: Unborn Babies Feel Pain

Posted by thelamp on July 14, 2006

the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, a common-sense initiative designed to make sure pregnant women learn the truth – that the baby inside them feels pain. To pro-abortion advocates, of course, this truth is inconvenient, and they’re doing all they can to prevent this bill from becoming law.Sponsored by U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas, the bill is also known as S.51. The bill has 34 co-sponsors and is currently in the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. A companion measure in the House, sponsored by Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., has 140 co-sponsors and is in the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health.

The bill would require those who perform abortions on unborn children who are more than 20 weeks old to explain to their mothers the medical evidence that unborn children feel pain. Abortion providers would be required to give this information verbally and to provide a brochure on the subject.

The bill would also guarantee that a woman who proceeds with an abortion despite this evidence be given the opportunity to provide anesthesia for her child – the least they can do for a baby that will be brutally murdered. Even a death-row inmate awaiting execution is given the right to have his or her pain alleviated. Certainly we can do the same for an unborn baby.

“Women should not be kept in the dark; women have the right to know what their unborn child experiences during an abortion,” says Sen. Brownback. He’s right.
