...but I have to wonder why, why given the evidence do we even need to begin at this step that Senator Johanns is introducing? I get that simply informing mothers that killing their child in utero is going to cause "immense pain" to that child (DUH!!!!) will hopefully persuade many mothers to forego abortion altogether, but to do so including an option that they simply administer pain medication prior to murdering a child??!!!?? Seriously??
"Ma'am, we are about to murder your child in utero, at your request. We want you to know that it will cause this child immense pain, but if you still want to go through with this procedure, we can administer pain medication to the child before murdering it in cold blood."
God help us.
