Leading Physician Confirms Unborn Children Feel Excruciating Pain During Late-Term Abortions

LifeNews reports:

Baby in the wombThe U.S. Senate heard from medical experts on Tuesday about the scientific evidence that unborn babies can feel pain at 20 weeks or earlier.

The Senate is considering a piece of legislation named the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks when scientific evidence shows unborn babies can feel pain.

While abortion activists say unborn babies can’t feel pain until later in pregnancy, a leading U.S. neonatologist testified that a majority of the medical evidence indicates that unborn babies can feel severe pain at 20 weeks or earlier, according to the Catholic News Agency.

Dr. Colleen A. Malloy, a professor of neonatology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, told the Senate committee that “anesthesiologists, and surgeons use pain medication” at the 20 week stage, “because it’s supported by the literature completely.”
