Fetuses Dissed By Godless Scientists
First Galileo insulted The Church by saying the sun doesn’t revolve around the Earth. Then Charles Darwin said that God didn’t create the world in seven days — some newfangled theory about "Evolution."
And now it’s the end of another myth: the Silent Scream — the agonizing death throes of unborn children being murdered by their pagan mothers.
According to a new scientific study, the fetus doesn’t feel any pain until the final months of pregnancy. Oops! Time to revise the ol’ belief system again.
Right now federal legislation is pending that would require doctors to provide “fetal pain information” for women seeking abortions after the 5th month of pregnancy. The law would also require that anesthesia be given to the fetus after the 5th month. Several states already have this law.
But now this report, from the Journal of the American Medical Association, says administering anesthesia to the fetus can endanger the mother’s health.
According to this study, fetuses start feeling pain around the 7th month of pregnancy. The brain structures involved in perceiving pain are not functional until the 7th month.
The journal’s editor-in-chief said there was no political agenda for publishing the findings. “Oh please. If I had a political agenda, I wouldn’t pick fetal pain. We publish data-based, evidence-based science.”
About 18,000 abortions are performed in America during or after the 5th month.
And now, in a related story, Supreme Court nominee John Roberts had some advice in 1985 for the California Pro-Life Medical Association, who wanted to perform a memorial service for aborted fetuses. He told them their plan was “an entirely appropriate means of calling attention to the abortion tragedy.”
Looks like our Culture Wars will be heating up again, just in time for the 2006 elections. Pat Robertson has his work cut out for him. After he gets through assassinating the President of Venezuela, he might as well just keep on huntin’ and shootin’. We got us a few of them heathen scientists that need a little Bible lesson.
