Fetus Cannot Feel Pain, Expert Says

FRIDAY, April 14 (HealthDay News) -- Fetuses cannot feel pain, therefore U.S. legislation requiring doctors to tell women that the fetus will feel pain, or to provide pain relief during abortions, has no scientific basis and may harm the women involved, a leading expert contends.

"This is an unwarranted piece of legislation because there is good evidence that the fetus cannot feel pain at any stage of gestation," said Stuart Derbyshire, senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Birmingham, U.K.

He authored an review of the available data on the subject in the April 15 issue of the British Medical Journal.

One research--regardless who done it or how it was done-- is enough to make it an 'established science'... /s

How is it known that a fetus has no pain? Do nerves magically develop as soon as a baby is born, but not a minute before?

Not true. If he/she responds to outside stimuli then they feel something. Look at an ultrasound and see how baby moves and grooves when the wand is placed over a woman's stomach and moved around. See him move when he is poked and prodded.

I heard the same is true for death row convicts, therefore the requirement of certain states to ensure they are unconscious before administering the lethal dose is unwarranted.....

He authored an [sic] review of the available data on the subject in the April 15 issue of the British Medical Journal.

A review ... not hands-on testing, no first hand knowledge. Hearsay, your honor. Strike his testimony fromt he record.

Until quite recently, they also operated on infants WITHOUT anesthesia because, Science claimed, Infants couldn't feel pain.

And we all know that, (contrary to what we all know ;o) ) that small babies can't smile - "...it's just gas"

This is absolutely untrue and damaging to our culture to have it be believed. Not only can fetuses feel physical pain (to say otherwise is to say they develop a full-blown nervous sytem the instant they pass out of the mother's body), they also feel and react to negative and positive emotions of their mothers.

This won't suit the scientists who want to believe a lie, but I offer this as evidence of the life-reacting power within a human fetus.

Luke 1:39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah;
40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and greeted Elisabeth [who was six months into her pregnancy, carrying the future John, the Baptist].
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.

Ha Ha Ha!

Indeed.

That jaw-dropping phrase of ignorant broad-brushing is not worthy of even a junior high school report. More the stuff of Bagdad Bob, Herr Goebbels or Pravda.

Should have included verse 44:

"For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy."

People will say anything, or find any "expert" to do a biased study, in order to push their agenda and sway the weak minded.

I tend to believe this. I have asked hundred of fetuses this very same question and not one of them gave me a clear answer.
