Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

5-3-16_Pain-Capable.jpgI sign this petition in support of House Bill 117/Senate Bill 127 which protects unborn babies who feel pain from abortion. Medical evidence suggests these babies feel pain by at least 20 weeks gestation, and I urge you to protect your most vulnerable constituents.

By 20 weeks gestation, pain receptors are present throughout the baby’s body, though they first appear around 6-7 weeks gestation and babies respond to touch at just 8 weeks gestation.

Multiple polling companies demonstrate consistent, popular support for legislation which would protect pain-capable pre-born babies from abortion. Quinnipiac University’s November 2014 poll demonstrates that 60 percent of Americans support the legislation. Women and millennials support the legislation by double-digits.

The U.S. is one of 7 countries, along with North Korea and China, that allows abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Please support the passage of House Bill 117/Senate Bill 127 and help Ohio catch up with the rest of the developed world in protecting pain-capable babies.

    For around 8 1/2 years I worked for a Nurse Researcher researching reactions of pre-term infants in response to potential painful treatments (like heel-stick and even diaper change, etc.) I remember typing in one of her published articles that pre-term infants as young as 20 weeks and 3 days could recognize the difference between painful and nonpainful (diaper change) stimuli and respond appropriately. Those clinics and the Supreme Court need to acknowledge this fact and THEY should respond appropriately!!! If we can at least start there, who knows? Maybe we can take it all the way to no early deaths of pre-term infants from the very first moment of life!
