Fetal-pain bills are being pushed, despite the lack of evidence:
The most recent study on fetal pain, published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, concluded that it was unlikely that a fetus could feel pain before the third trimester, and that an anesthetic would pose an unnecessary risk to women.
Some however, have more common sense:
“I trust doctors, not the legislature, to make medical judgments,” Doyle said in a released statement. “We should keep the doctor-patient relationship between doctors and patients, and keep the legislature out of it.”
