House Committee Passes Fetal Pain Bill

Friday, the House Federal and States Affairs Committee passed legislation that would restrict abortions past 20 weeks based on the ability of the unborn to feel pain.  Earlier in the week, medical experts testified that the unborn feel pain at this stage.  The Kansas Catholic Conference also offered testimony, in the hope that this legislation will both protect as many unborn Kansans as is possible under existing Supreme Court abortion jurisprudence, and educate Kansans as to the humanity of the unborn.
