British scientists have discovered that fetuses may be able to feel pain after 13 weeks in the womb, making the abortion process seem even more gruesome.
Before this study, it was generally accepted that fetuses started feeling pain after 24 weeks in the womb. The findings of the scientists cast serious doubt on the conventional wisdom of the medical industry. The scientists believe that women should be notified that fetuses can feel pain before abortions are performed.
They wrote in the Journal of Medical Ethics that it “flirts with moral recklessness” to withhold this new information from pregnant women who have been led to believe by the medical industry that the a fetus cannot feel pain at that stage of the pregnancy.
One of the authors of the study is a long-time proponent of abortion. British professor Stuart Derbyshire, who has served as a consultant to the Pro-Choice Forum in Britain and for Planned Parenthood, wrote the study with a cohort. Previously, Derbyshire had said that pregnant women not being informed about fetal pain was “sound policy based on good evidence that fetuses cannot experience pain.”
“Given the evidence that the fetus might be able to experience something like pain during later abortions, it seems reasonable that the clinical team and the pregnant woman are encouraged to consider fetal analgesia [pain relief],” wrote Derbyshire and his co-author Dr. John Bockmann, an American medic.
Abortion providers are in denial about the study’s findings.
“The most comprehensive review of this issue to date concluded a fetus cannot experience pain before 24 weeks,” said Clare Murphy of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, the largest abortion provider in the UK.
The pro-life community feels vindicated by the findings of the study, but feel the authors’ suggestion to use fetal anesthesia during abortions as a consequence is abhorrent.
“There is nothing in this paper which would lead to a change in practice,” said Dr. Anthony McCarthy of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. “A society that claims to take seriously animal pain should not shrink from confronting pain inflicted on young human beings in the name of ‘choice.'”
“Making death painless for the one killed does not, however, mean that taking life is thereby justified,” he added.
“Given developing views and research on fetal pain, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ guidance on this issue in relation to abortion – which is now nearly ten years old – should be reviewed,” said pro-life member of parliament Fiona Bruce.
“This new evidence adds further pressure on Parliament to urgently review our current abortion time limit. We last had a proper debate on time limits in 2008,” said member of parliament Lord David Alton.
New revelations in recent months – including certain abortion providers conducting a fetal chop shop of sorts to huge profits – have confirmed the worst fears of the pro-life movement. This new study is another indicator that abortion providers are engaging in rank barbarism.
Texas City Stands Up for Life by Passing Pro-Life Ordinance
Planned Parenthood is not welcome.
The town of New Home, located south of Lubbock, became the 15th city in Texas to prohibit abortion on September 29, 2020.
The New Home city council unanimously voted for the resolution following state politicians and local officials discussing the idea of bringing back a Planned Parenthood facility to the city. New Home Baptist pastor L.J. Wright was a champion of this pro-life effort and hopes that the vote will change Lubbock’s city council decision to bring back Planned Parenthood.
“With the City Council in Lubbock seemingly balking at the ordinance while claiming to be Pro-Life, this puts the pressure directly on them,” Wright commented. “Every city in Lynn County should consider following suit with New Home, and get behind Mark Lee Dickson… I am challenging all of West Texas to stand up for life, and make their city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn.”
Mark Lee Dickson, a pro-life activist and director of Right to Life of East Texas, crafted this ordinance.
Texas Senator Charles Perry, who represents Lubbock, has sent a petition around requesting that Planned Parenthood be kept out of Lubbock and signed on a letter calling Lubbock to pass a similar ordinance.
“Passing an ordinance designating Lubbock as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn will help to continue the Texas belief that life begins at conception, while also protecting the safety of mothers,” Perry wrote in the letter, which was also signed by State Representatives Dustin Burrows and John Frullo.
Similar to the other cities who have passed such ordinances, New Home’s ordinance implements the abortion ban by imposing fines on abortion providers. The catch is that this ordinance will go into effect once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Providers will also be held liable for carrying out abortions, and families who have children that were aborted will now be able to sue them.
The Texas reported that “Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Gilmer, Westbrook, Rusk, Colorado City, Gary, Big Spring, Wells, Whiteface, and East Mountain are the other cities that have adopted the ordinance, modeled by Dickson. The town of Omaha adopted the ordinance but later pulled its teeth, making it a symbolic resolution instead.”
Texans are getting fed up with the inaction of legislators at the state and federal level. So, they’re taking matters into their own hands at the local level. Similar to Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions, these pro-life movements represent a growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo and are likely a sign of how politics will be conducted from here on out.
