The researchers reviewed dozens of studies and medical reports and said the data indicate that fetuses likely are incapable of feeling pain until around the seventh month of pregnancy, when they are about 28 weeks old.
While brain structures involved in feeling pain begin forming much earlier, research indicates they likely do not function until the pregnancy's final stages, said the report's senior author, UCSF obstetric anesthesiologist Dr. Mark Rosen.
They just make it up as they go, regardless of hard science, the appearance of being proven wrong, or logic itself. They don't care.
I wonder how many of those freaks who thought a fetus felt pain will change their mind regarding forced motherhood? Perhaps it may lead one to even imagine a fetus is not cognizant whatsoever? And maybe, juuuuuust maybe, God would not condemn a soul that was never cognizant, or who could have never felt pain?... Yeah, I know, fat chance. Such is the price of dealing with folks adverse to learning, education, and science.
