I will preface my comment with this caveat: I am grateful to have never been put into a position to even have to consider having an abortion. I couldn't have done it; however, I am Pro-Choice and nobody died and made the GOP and other pro-fetus groups "God". This is a decision best left to the woman, her doctor, her partner, and HER God. All of that said, I would like to share the following: "Claim: A fetus can feel pain 20 weeks after conception.
Source: Dr. Kanwaljeet "Sunny" Anand, professor of pediatrics, anesthesiology, and neurobiology at the University of Tennessee
Why it's bunk: Anand argues that because fetuses can respond to stress or other stimuli at 20 weeks, abortion after that point causes them "severe and excruciating pain." The bulk of the scientific literature on the subject, however, finds that the brain connections needed to feel pain are not in place until at least 24 weeks, which is also the earliest possible time a fetus becomes viable outside the womb. Anand's testimony has been used to justify state and federal laws banning abortions after 20 weeks; those efforts have passed in nine states since 2010." http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/06/science-house-abortion-ban-fetal-pain
