Kentucky’s new anti-abortion law assumes — incorrectly — that a fetus can feel pain at 20 weeks. By Jordan Smith.
Should anyone be surprised?
Like i said before,if humans were like seahorses and males birthed via pouches abortion
would be seen as okay dokey.
*like most laws in the Bible belt.
Edit: that is, of course, those that pretend to be based on science.
Take the time, no matter your persuasion, to peruse links provided.
"which is that the ability to feel pain doesn’t develop until closer to 30 weeks." This statement in the article is not corroborated by the referenced study linked to it....
Were those the links you meant to post? Anecdata from a downmarket British supermarket tabloid, Fox News, and a nutritionist; an unrelated Wikipedia article; and a website called, and get this, "doctorsonfetalpain.com?" Guess what: doctors aren't the ones that registered that domain name to deliberately distort their own research. Say, out of idle curiosity, if you could live in a country where women had no rights over their own bodies, but you had no right to bear arms, would you go for it?
Since you choose to sidestep the issue presented by me, and ignore the very lie presented by your submittal, that being: "which is that the ability to feel pain doesn’t develop until closer to 30 weeks." which the very link referred to in the article states 17 to 20 weeks, you may now move on elsewhere to advocate your agenda.

You say the article makes a claim that’s contradicted by a cited study. It doesn’t. Know how I can tell? I can read. You could try reading it, too.
It might not be as authoritative as things you found in the bottom of a Crackerjack box, written on the missing heel of a shoe, in the “alternative facts” you would prefer were true, or your ultimate source for reliable, unquestionable information — the first result of a hastily-crafted Bing search, but it does have the merit of being part of objective reality.
Now, I’m not going to pretend you’ll read it. Any more than you’ve read any of the laundry list of links you’re still piling onto the end of your comment above. I read the first few of those. I saw one defining fetal pain as not fetal pain. I saw one where the authors said they had no idea at all whether there was fetal pain before thirty weeks. But then, I’m only willing and able to read the first several versions you make of your comments. After the first few hours, I may not be paying as close attention to the ninja edits you continue to make. Especially when you don’t bother reading them for your damn self.
We don’t have to pretend you read any of this. Because it’s obvious you couldn’t care less what science says. You still haven’t read the article we’re talking about. If you had, you’d realize it’s about how you and people like you will use any pretext at all to deprive others of their rights, however bafflingly stupid or fake. I’d suggest you read it, but you’re not going to start now, are you? Not while you can keep making things up as you go along. You know, what most people call lying through your teeth.
