The pro-life argument isn’t that it is wrong to intentionally kill fetuses because they are capable of experiencing pain. Abortion is wrong because it intentionally kills innocent human beings. Even so, unborn babies as early as 20 weeks may feel pain intensely.

This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Megan Almon about her volume 42, number 3/4 (2019) article, “What’s Pain Got to Do with It? Why Arguments over Fetal Pain Capability Ultimately Miss the Mark in the Abortion Debate“.  Normally, we don’t release print articles from last year online so quickly but due to the significance of topic we are making an exception.
