Unborn children may have their right to feel pain made law by the Animal Sentience Bill included in this week’s Queen’s Speech.
Prolifers often claim that terminating a pregnancy causes pain to the foetus. The government’s bill will enshrine foetus’ right to feel pain in law, along with other animals who possess a spinal cord.
As abortionists, we have a duty to ensure that our practices are in line with government legislation and we will ensure that a foetus’s right to suffer is carried out to the letter during a pregnancy termination.
As the Environment Secretary and Defra pointed out, “How we treat animals, is the mark of a civilised society.”
