Foetuses Cant Feel Pain Says A Leading Psychologist

Dr Stuart Derbyshire, of the University of Birmingham, a leading psychologist said yesterday that foetuses couldn’t experience pain. He said that by telling women, who are considering abortions that their unborn child // can feel pain was not right and exposed them to inappropriate and possibly dangerous medical treatment.

Dr Derbyshire carried out a study for evidence of the existence of foetal pain and found that while the necessary biological system required for pain is complete at 26 weeks' gestation, real sensations of pain depend on experiences outside the womb.

The US government is now considering a law that would make it mandatory for doctors to tell women seeking an abortion that there is substantial evidence that the process of being killed in an abortion will cause the unborn child pain. Doctors who carry out abortions after 22 weeks without painkilling drugs would be fined $100,000 (£57,700) and lose their medical licence.

Comparing the pain response of an unborn baby to that of a fruit fly larva that reacts to a flame by bending and rolling away, Dr Derbyshire described it as merely an automatic biological mechanism designed to avoid harmful stimuli. His notes in the British Medical Journal, said that, the neural circuitry for pain in foetuses is immature. He also said in his notes that pain becomes possible because of a psychological development that begins at birth when the baby is separated from the protected atmosphere of the womb and is stimulated into wakeful activity. He claims that pain is something that comes from experiences and develops due to stimulation and human interaction.

He said that, the proposals to inform women seeking abortions of the potential for pain in foetuses are not supported by evidence.
