Statement on Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act

Dobson Applauds Introduction of Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act Focus on the Family Action Chairman Dr. James C. Dobson issued the following statement today in response to the introduction of the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act in the U.S. Senate: "Medical research now confirms what we've suspected for some time: The baby in the womb can feel the pain of an abortion. The pain is real, even if the baby cannot verbalize it. In fact, during this stage of human development, the pain experienced by a baby during an abortion is even more intense than what you and I would feel. "Society has humane laws that make it illegal to inflict torture on an animal, relating in great detail the conditions under which they can be trapped or killed. But no such protection is afforded to human babies, who can be legally dismembered without anesthetic. That must change, and the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act - by spotlighting the sheer brutality of abortion - offers members of Congress an opportunity to ensure that it does." ***** Pro-Life activists tape their mouths shut while participating in the 32nd Annual March For Life in Washington DC, January 24 2005. The march marks the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion in 1973.

For those lacking in basic logic, ownership of ones body does not extend to that of the unborn child's body much like I cannot shoot and kill a trespasser simply because he is on my property. Sadly, the death of over 43 million babies is due to this fallatious logic.)
