A Fetal Pain Bill is Helping People to Recognize the Unborn as Persons
Air Date: 05/18/2011
Summary: Today’s guest, Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas, talks about victories in the pro-life area. A new fetal pain bill defines a fetus as a pain-capable child. The law was passed in Kansas, ending abortion beyond the 22-week point. This victory is two-fold: First, it will directly reduce the amount of abortions in a similar way that viability laws do. Second, by recognizing that an unborn child feels pain, we are taking a step closer to recognizing an unborn child as a legal person. Planned parenthood is not challenging this law, because they understand what it would mean to recognize an unborn child as pain-capable. Brownback is changing the way America views abortion.
