“Neurologically, the science is pretty incontrovertible,” Sara Imershein, an OB-GYN in Washington, D.C., said by phone. “We do not believe that a 20-week fetus can perceive pain. There are nerves, but the connections are incomplete and can’t register pain. … It’s a political myth.”
....and really?
“If we really are concerned about fetal pain, I think we have to outlaw labor,” Imershein, the OB-GYN, said. “If you’re going to come up with a myth about fetal pain, you’ve got to remember that the average newborn has spent hours upside down with crushing muscular tension on their head every one to five minutes.”
