4. “Even first-trimester fetuses can feel pain.”
He said False. “Fetal nerve cells can react to trauma, but pain reception requires a neocortex–which is not formed until early in the third trimester.”
MYTH BUSTED: This excuse to abort unborn children that might not feel pain is ludicrous to INSANE. The abortion rights guy says ‘fetal nerve cells can REACT to trauma…’ – react, he says. Reacting to a trauma is knowing that the trauma rendered is or will be PAINFUL. Going on to his next comment about the neocortex, ScienceDaily.com says, “[The neocortex] is involved in higher functions such as sensory perception, generation of motor commands, spatial reasoning, conscious thought, and in humans, language.” Not one word was said about pain. Not one.
Essentially, the pro-aborts say that unborn babies react with a reflex not actual pain to the intrusion of the abortion procedure. This is perhaps one of the biggest lies that pro-aborts and pro-choicers lean on for keeping and expanding abortion rights for ‘women’. Reacting to a trauma is knowing that the trauma rendered will be PAINFUL. Considering that the brain isn’t set up for feeling pain that young but has the capacity to react to an impending painful scenario deepens the mindset of KNOWING that pain may ensue, even in the first trimester.
Also consider this: Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy* (HSAN) or Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy (HSN) is a condition used to describe any of the types of this disease(s) which inhibit sensation [see below]. About 1 in 25,000 has this issue of not being able to feel PAIN. Then, would the abortions rights guy be okay with killing these folks because of their inability to feel the pain of being killed?
Or, imagine that Grandma is lying in hospice, in a coma, maybe even brain-dead in the physician’s opinion. Can Grandma feel pain if she were euthanized? According to the abortion rights guy, if that person has a neocortex, yes she can. And since Grandma is post 20 weeks gestation, it would be considered that she would in fact feel PAIN.
So the summary is this: If someone, born or unborn, cannot feel pain, is it okay to murder them through abortion or euthanasia? This is the dividing line between so-called women’s rights and the rights of the not yet born. Our desensitation of human life and liberty started well before 1973 when poor women wanted what rich women had – the money and means to abort their unborn children conceived in either an unnatural manner, extra-marital, interracial, or class standing issues.
Once again, and probably for EVER since pro-aborts keep leaning on the pain switch, watch ‘Silent Scream’. It’ll change your life.
