The Myth of Abortion Rights by an abortion rights guy, part 4 of 10.

 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, 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.


*HSAN & HSN:  Type 1, Common, Type 2, Congenital sensory neuropathy, Type 3, Familial dysautonomia, Type 4, Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis, Type 5, Congenital insensitivity to pain with partial anhidrosis.

The Pain of Abortion

Can your baby feel pain? I know most moms don’t use diaper pins anymore, but for those that have…you know your child felt pain when you accidentally stuck him/her. It hurts and they cry. But does a child feel pain that is not yet born?

I’ve looked around the web and depending on who you click on will be the answer you’ll get. Ask anyone that is pro-choice and they will say that a child cannot feel pain until the central nervous system is in place. NOT TRUE.

A perfect example:  ‘The bill, which was introduced by Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood, bases its assertion that fetuses feel pain on the testimony of doctors, some of it given during a 2005 Congressional hearing on the subject. It contends there is substantial evidence that by 20 weeks, fetuses seek to evade stimuli in a way that indicates they are experiencing pain…..But testimony from that hearing also suggests the medical community has not reached a consensus on fetal pain.’ Read the entire article here.

Allow me to give you some substantial evidence.

In the first month (1-4 weeks) of gestation the heart, digestive system, backbone and spinal cord begin to form. In the 9th week, when most abortions are performed, the baby’s heartbeat can be heard; the main construction of the heart is complete and the brain is growing at a very rapid pace – brain waves can now be measured.

With all of the baby’s essential parts, skeleton and organs formed – and by this time all the baby has to do is to grow – can he/she feel pain? YES.

From By week 8, the neuro-anatomic structures are present. What is needed is a sensory nerve to feel the pain and send a message to the thalamus, a part of the base of the brain, and motor nerves that send a message to that area. These are present at 8 weeks. The pain impulse goes to the thalamus. It sends a signal down the motor nerves to pull away from the hurt.

There are six states (Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Utah) that require pregnant women be told an abortion could cause pain for the baby according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The pain of abortion is real regardless of what side of the womb you’re on.

Watch this video…it tells a story of a woman who witnessed an abortion via ultrasound and saw the baby move away in pain while the abortionists’ probe searched for it in his/her mother’s womb.
