    Earlier this year, as members of Congress debated a bill to ban late-term abortions, a national debate ensued over the question of whether unborn children feel pain. Abortion activists derided studies and expert testimony confirming fetal pain.

    Now, an anesthesiology professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Dr. Ray Paschall, who has done more surgeries with fetal anesthesia than any doctor in the world, says babies feel pain not only before birth but before viability:

    “It’s not even close,” he told a newspaper about his status as the leading surgeon with experience with fetal anesthesia surgeries, “I’ve personally done around 260 now.”

    I wasn't aware abortion was a Republican/Democrat issue. It thought it was a moral issue, and even Democrats have morals.

    It is a moral issue, exactly right. And the Democrats and Republicans are amoral to the same degree, except the Democrats are more honest about it.
