Abortion Constitutionality Fetal pain

NY Times article on fetal pain legislation


Here is a link to a National Right to Life News story commenting on today’s NY Times article on fetal pain legislation.

Here is the conclusion of the National Right to Life News story: “This is an important story that gives credit where credit is due; helps the reader understand why legislation that makes people appreciate the capacity of the unborn to experience pain is so pivotal; and (pro-abortion bravado to the contrary notwithstanding) why abortion advocates are panicky about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”
