#TheyFeelPain, but: White House vows to veto 'pain-capable' abortion bill

In its coverage of the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which is headed to the House floor tomorrow, the New York Times was careful to note that the idea that a fetus can feel pain after 20 weeks is a “scientifically disputed theory.” Pro-lifers, though, used the #TheyFeelPain hashtag today to pressure legislators to at the very least address that theory during a meeting of the House Rules Committee.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) was among those scientists disputing the notion of the unborn feeling pain.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas), a practicing OB/GYN before he took office, offered his personal experience.

Nadler’s opinion was rendered moot by his colleague Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.).

The White House issued a statement this afternoon saying that President Obama would veto the bill were it to reach his desk, explaining that, as a “direct challenge” to Roe v. Wade, it expresses contempt for women’s health and women’s rights as well as for the Constitution itself. The statement also reiterates the Democrats’ stance that “government should not inject itself into decisions best made between a woman and her doctor.”

While that sounds like a direct call to repeal Obamacare, we’re not counting on it.
