British Academics Produce Research Indicating That Fetuses May Feel Pain After 13 Weeks

The abortion industry does not want this research to be known.

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.

President Donald Trump Pledges to “Fully Defund” Planned Parenthood If Reelected

Trump has governed as the most pro-life President in history.

Published

President Trump is pledging to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood during his tentative second term in office, making a pledge in a letter to the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition. In the letter, the President also touts the pro-life accomplishments of his administration.

The President breaks down how he’s “proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.

The President touts his administration’s appointment of hundreds of pro-life judges, partial defunding of the abortion industry including Planned Parenthood, the barring of federal medical research facilities from using materials obtained from the bodies of aborted children, and the defense of personal conscience rights of physicians, medical personnel, and other professionals. Congressional Democrats have largely blocked a full defunding of Planned Parenthood, which continues to perform more abortions than any other organization in the country.

The President also touts his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions.

Joe Biden, who is largely running for President on the basis of his supposedly impeccable and virtuous character, has supported total and unlimited legalization of abortion throughout his entire political career. The nominal Catholic went so far as to quote Pope St. John Paul II in a recent campaign ad, a nod to Catholic voters, all while silently disregarding his commitment to abortion on demand.
