Dr. Sheila Page, D.O.
Why is the question of pain perception in the unborn child important?
The concept of pain is a fundamental part of our humanity, and intentionally inflicting pain on another human being is a humanitarian issue. When the unborn child is subjected to the abortion procedures that induce death, some people may be willing to accept the destruction of life if they believe it is done in a “humane” way. When we can connect to the humanity of the unborn, we naturally consider abortion to be unthinkable. This discussion includes a review of human neurological development and the biokinetics of life in the womb.
