A group of doctors called on an appeals court to consider the ability of a fetus to feel pain in examining an Arizona alw preventing abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
It argues that the state has established interest in eliminating or reducing "activities that provoke pain."
The brief was filed on October 10 on behalf of Doctors on Fetal Pain, a physician and medical researcher organization that seeks to raise awareness about evidence showing the ability of unborn children to experience pain.
The case, Isaacson v Horne, challenges an Arizona law to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, except in the case of medical emergency. In forming the law, state legislators took into account scientific and medical evidence indicating that unborn children can feel pain at this point in their development.
