In the pursuit of protecting human life, and limiting human suffering, pro-life advocates have succeeded in preventing abortions in Texas after 20 weeks gestation. Pro-life advocates celebrated the success of their efforts to ban abortions, fearful that a fetus might experience pain. However the truth is that the real pain can be experienced by a mother, a living, breathing, person who might experience cruel and unusual punishment. Consider the case of this Texas woman whose child would inevitably die, but the mother was required to endure pre-term labor, with the child’s feel hanging out her vagina for four days, before she naturally delivered the baby which ultimately died. Texans are so concerned about protecting the unborn, that we have forgotten to protect the adults who make our country great!
