National Right to Life: The first… but maybe the last?

by E. Carroll

-NRL reported:  “The Nebraska Legislature this morning gave final passage to the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act introduced by Speaker Mike Flood. Governor Dave Heineman is expected to sign the bill in a ceremony this afternoon.  The law will take effect on October 15, 2010.”

“By 20 weeks after fertilization, unborn children have pain receptors throughout their body, and nerves link these to the brain,” said National Right to Life Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D. “These unborn children recoil from painful stimulation, which also dramatically increases their release of stress hormones. Doctors performing fetal surgery at and after 20 weeks now routinely use fetal anesthesia.” http://www.nrlc.org/press_releases_new/Release041310.html

-NRL reported: “The Tennessee state legislature made the state the first in the nation to pass legislation in both houses which bans the inclusion of abortion as a benefit within health exchanges required by the federal health care plan passed by Congress last month.”  http://www.nrlc.org/press_releases_new/Release042010.html
