    Unborn feel pain before 24 weeks

    Unborn babies may be able to feel pain before reaching 24 weeks, say scientists – meaning they could suffer as they are being aborted.

    Until now, the consensus of medical opinion has been that foetuses cannot feel pain before 24 weeks' gestation, after which abortion is illegal in Britain except in special cases.

    But two medical researchers, including a 'pro-choice' British pain expert who used to think there was no chance foetuses could feel pain that early, say recent studies strongly suggest the assumption is incorrect.

    The studies indicate unborn babies might be able to feel 'something like pain' as early as 13 weeks, they say.

    Women going for abortions who have reached this stage of pregnancy should be told the foetus could experience pain while being terminated, they argue. And medical staff should ask if the woman wants it to be given pain relief.

    But in the JME article, he and American medic John Bockmann say there is now 'good evidence' that the brain and nervous system are sufficiently wired up by 18 weeks for the foetus to feel pain.

    Specifically, it has been thought that the cortex, the outer brain layer that deals with sensory information, is not developed enough for pain to register.

    As a result, 'many medical bodies… state that pain is not possible before 24 weeks' gestation'. However, recent studies clearly show 'that the consensus is no longer valid', they argue.

    One study found an adult with an extensively damaged cortex could still feel pain.

    Their conclusions raise grave questions for the UK's abortion industry, which carried out 218,281 terminations in 2018 – almost a quarter (23 per cent) of all pregnancies. About 6,000 abortions are carried out annually at 18 weeks or later.

    Re: Unborn feel pain before 24 weeks

    Psycho's to narcissists are lazy control freaks. As for me ; I try as much as I can to Stay out of Babylons money system and world order. Life is better than being right and seeking pressure. Abortion is just horrible.
    To me whether or not you aid global multiculturalism indirectly or not you are making abortion easier to happen.
