Animals feel pain, and are protected by law. Maybe we can get legislatures to at least define the unborn as deserving of protection from pain. There was a case from the 1800’s I think where a lawyer successfully protected a child from abuse based on the fact that she was at least an “animal” and deserved protection on that basis.

(Democracy is the theory that the people get the government they deserve, good and hard.)
If the pain argument floats the boat and gets people at least THINKING about the pre-born baby's plight then I am all for it.
