In Nebraska, New Law Limits Abortion for Fetal Pain

Creative Minority Report has the story.

Without dragging out all the science (much of which actually shows that the unborn most certainly feel pain) here’s how I check if I like an abortion bill – I check my pro-abort freakout-ometer readings. And let me tell you something, this newly minted Nebraska law is making my pro-abort freakout-ometer readings fly off the chart.

The AP is reporting:

Nebraska lawmakers on Tuesday passed a groundbreaking bill banning abortions at 20 weeks based on assertions that fetuses feel pain then. Gov. Dave Heineman planned to sign it into law in the afternoon.

If upheld by the courts, the bill could change the foundation of abortion laws nationwide. Current restrictions in Nebraska and elsewhere are based on a fetus’s ability to survive outside the womb, or viability.

Viability is determined on a case-by-case basis but is generally considered to occur at 22 to 24 weeks. …

And, Matthew adds, the governor has already signed the bill. Give him a visit and check out the rest of the story.

  1. Great idea to attack abortion from this angle. Would we treat our dogs or cats (or insert pet species here ___) in such a calllous way? Most Americans would say : No way!
    This approach rightly turns the old argument “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy ” on its head – where it belongs.
    Let’s give Homo sapiens some respect!
