â¨Pain is an emotional and psychological experience that requires conscious recognition of a noxious stimulus. Consequently, the capacity for conscious perception of pain can arise only after thalamocortical pathways begin to function, which may occur in the third trimester around 29 to 30 weeksâ gestational age, see link for full article:

Legal or clinical mandates to prevent pain in fetuses are based on limited evidence and may put women seeking abortion at unnecessary risk. This paper outlines neurodevelopment in fetuses in the context of pain experience
The US federal government is considering legislation that will require doctors to inform women seeking abortions that "there is substantial evidence that the process of being killed in an abortion will cause the unborn child pain."w1 The bill mandates that a fetus of more than 22 weeks' gestational age should receive pain reducing drugs before an abortion. Doctors who fail to comply can be fined $100 000 (Â£57 700; 84 000) and can lose their licence and Medicaid funding.

This paper discusses whether there is sufficient evidence to support a concept of fetal pain through an examination of fetal neurobiology and the relation to experience. Important neurobiological developments occur at 7,
|18, and 26 weeks' gestation and are the proposed periods for when a fetus can feel pain. Although the developmental changes during these periods are remarkable they do not tell us whether the fetus can experience pain. The subjective experience of pain cannot be inferred from anatomical developments because these developments do not account for subjectivity and the conscious contents of pain.|
LOL!!! What exactly is this development?
What does that last part in bold mean?
|what does this have to do with anything having to do with abortions. why should anyone care whether the child fells pain or not? what difference does it make wether the child feels pain or not? some arbitrary value judgement that some abortionists that think of themselves as some sort of gods decided to make?|

Excellent post. Whether the fetus feels pain or not is wholly irrelevant to the abortion debate. It is still a woman's right to choose to terminate a pregnancy.
That said, I don't see a problem with euthanizing the fetus prior to a later abortion for fetal anomaly. The theory is that the abortion is occurring to prevent suffering, so why not come down on the side of caution and euthanize first just in case?
|You've been reported. I don't expect you'll be around long if you keep this up.|
|there is no such thing as a right to choose and an abortion is a privilage not a right. a privilage granted to vicious self centered homicidal maniacs because that is easier than argueing with them.|
i thought that making death threats against people whos opinions you disagree with is illegal. which is exactly what you are doing.
