So it would be OK to kill a 36-week fetus if you used anesthesia?

I suspect the point of the specification of capable of experiencing pain is two-fold: first it fits with the little considered aspects of the actual decision in Roe v. Wade that actually (at least in theory) allow restrictions on abortion in cases where a compelling state interest overcomes the “right of privacy” that SCOTUS conjured out of the Constitution (as compelling state interests can allow limits even on explicitly enumerated rights), and second it provides an exception for later abortions in the case of anencephaly (which doubtless the pro-abortion side flogged as a counterargument to the measure).
