Cato Institute on Abortion
This year, as versions of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act are introduced in a number of state legislatures, there will obviously be fierce opposition. I expect, however, that this Nebraska breakthrough for pro-lifers may well become law in certain states.
One of those laws is likely to come before the Supreme Court. Five members of the current US Supreme Court would give serious consideration to Nebraska's assertion of a compelling interest in preserving the life of an unborn child whom substantial medical evidence indicates is capable of feeling pain during an abortion.
Thus both sides' fears are justified. Both sides of the abortion debate are learning why government should not subsidize health care.
