Kentucky has become the 19th state in the US to ban abortion after 20 weeks of gestation due to the claim that 20 weeks is the point at which the fetus can perceive pain reports The Intercept.

Senate Bill 5 also known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act was sponsored by Republican Sen. Brandon Smith who claimed “the bill was necessary because medical science tells us that at 20 weeks a fetus can feel pain, and thus can feel what it’s like to be aborted.”

He added “We have got little ones out there that are going through some of the most awful painful experiences that you can have.”

Although lauded by pro-life activisist, the law has been sharply criticized by pro-choice liberals. Sarah Wheat, chief external affairs officer for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas said to The Intercept, lawmakers “always point to some reason why these are needed — whether it’s junk science from a medical perspective [or] psychological junk science — that women aren’t capable of making these decisions, or aren’t well informed. It’s the basis for every single one of these anti-abortion restrictions.”

I am not surprised at all. As for me, legal abortion care is good.
