Overwhelming scientific consensus holds that a fetus cannot feel pain before 24 weeks. But let's face it: the current assault on choice isn't really about perception of pain -- it's just another excuse to chip away at abortion rights.

They literally edited the timestamp on the historical record after the fact. I'm reminded of election night 2000, and it's not a good feeling.
