A woman in the UK has filed a lawsuit asking that abortion businesses be required to inform women that their preborn babies are capable of feeling pain while being aborted.
Ana-Marie Tudor said that if she had known the preborn baby she aborted at 23 weeks gestation could feel pain she would not have chosen abortion, and since she was not give this information on fetal pain, she claims she was incapable of giving her fully informed consent for the abortion.
Abortion businesses do not tell women their preborn children can feel pain and they do not give any form of pain relief to preborn children before brutal abortion procedures, which frequently involve dismemberment. Tudors lawyers argue that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) must update its guidelines regarding abortion and fetal pain because they are out of date.
The failure to provide this information to my client meant she went ahead and aborted her baby at 23 weeks, a decision she profoundly regrets, said her attorney Paul Conrathe.
Tudor said she was told she would be unable to conceive children because of health issues. However, she conceived anyway, and didnt know she was pregnant until she was already five months along. When she went to a British Pregnancy Advisory Service facility to have an abortion in April 2017, she wasnt convinced it was the right decision. But despite her doubts after speaking to a pro-life activist, she went through with the abortion. If she had known her baby could feel pain, she says believes she would have been swayed against an abortion.
Tudor, who considers herself pro-choice, said, Women should be able to decide what they want to do, but they must be told the truth of what is involved. Live Actions Abortion Procedures videos aim to educate people on what actually happens in an abortion, and many people have changed their position on abortion after seeing the videos. Certainly, women who are considering abortions deserve complete information about the procedures and about fetal development:
NICE and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists still claim that preborn children do not feel pain before 24 weeks gestation. This is outdated information. Recent research indicates that preborn children may be able to feel pain as young as eight weeks. Other recent research notes that there is significant evidence to suggest that by the end of the first trimester at latest, preborn children likely experience pain. Research has also found that fetal pain can be more intense than that of an adult. The video below shows a preborn child at eight weeks:
Strikingly, the earlier fetuses are delivered the stronger their response to pain, and this is due to the absence of later arising brain circuitry that actually inhibits the pain response in older infants and adults, explained Dr. Maureen Condic, Ph.D., an associate professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah, during testimony before Congress.
Dr. Colleen Malloy, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine who cares for premature infants as young as 22 weeks, testified in 2012 that As we provide care for all these survivors, we are able to witness their experiences with pain. In fact, standard of care for neonatal intensive care units requires attention to and treatment of neonatal pain. There is no reason to believe that a born infant would feel pain any differently than that same infant were he or she still in utero.
Dr. Malloy added that not only do preborn children feel pain, but they have a heightened sensation of pain compared to an infant more advanced in gestation.
In March, a group of MPs led by pro-life MP and lawyer Fiona Bruce released a report recommending that pregnant women undergoing surgery that would affect their preborn children including abortion be given updated information on when a preborn child can feel pain.
You have to be some kind of stupid to not realize babies can feel pain. How did people get so dumb?
Ok. Shes an idiot.
Their are only two requirements to support abortion. You must be evil, or stupid.
I actually hate this logic. If physical pain is the only thing we are worried about, we can kill people painlessly. How about that she deprived a human being of an entire lifetime of experiences, joys, love and other potential that is now wiped from the universe so casually. That’s the real pain.
How stupid can people be. Of course infants in the womb can feel pain! What do they think that a switch is automatically turned on as the baby slides down the birth canal? Babies in the womb just can’t scream as their legs and arms are ripped off. thank you mommy
Sigh. Sometimes,I just get so overwhelmed and give zero cares.
Me thinks that woman is the typical product of Re education.
She’s too stupid to breed. We need to sterilize people like her. Viz. approximately half the US population. All democRATs.
It’s what the judge will say too.
but i aborted my baby
tell me what living thing doesn’t feel pain at being killed
she’s playing the idiot in order to profit off her own decision to murder her baby
The other embodies sanctity of life.
To me, the shutdown protagonists embody fear as represented by the death culture.
The Americans favoring freeing of the shackles and self responsibility yearn for, value and cherish life. It was written somewhere, many ages ago, that this depresents a phenomenal trait. Lets see if it holds true.
I pray it is so.
Feel free to argue. I welcome it.
Oops. Represents not depresents. Maybe I invented a new lib term. Lmao.
You have described the fight between good and evil, Democrat and Republican, left and right succulently.
Omg thank you ever so much!!! I dont recall being termed succulent before. I am blushing right now. Lol. Love you mate.
