VA legislators tackle issue of fetal pain

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 2/18/2009

The Virginia House has passed a bill on a woman's right to know about the pain unborn babies experience during an abortion. reports the bill hopes to convince women of the unborn child's humanity and deter an abortion or at least get them to provide the baby with anesthesia before continuing with an abortion. However, Chris Freund, vice president of policy and communication for The Family Foundation, believes the bill could face a stumbling block in the Senate Education and Health Committee, thus never reaching the floor for a vote.
