In the current legislative session, MCFL has filed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H-1550, which would stop abortions after 20 weeks. Twelve states already have such laws. We all know that unborn babies feel pain even before 20 weeks (in 1807, doctors at Harvard Medical School said 15 weeks and, of course, we know more now).
Whenever MCFL or anyone else explains the science, the pro-aborts refer to a study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2005. As you will see, three of the five authors had close ties to NARAL and abortion providers. Also their findings don’t stand up. The sad thing is that JAMA refuses to retract the article. Don’t they realize letting politics get in the way of science damages their credibility?
