    LONDON - British health experts say the human fetus cannot feel pain before the age of 24 weeks, so there is no reason to change the country's abortion laws.

    The government-commissioned study is a setback for anti-abortion activists, who want the country's current 24-week time limit for terminations reduced.

    The study says that nerve connections in the brain are not sufficiently formed to allow pain perception before 24 weeks.

    I don't think "pain" comes into play for the folks intent on getting an abortion. I just don't think that would be the deciding factor.

    Nope, that study isn't going to change the basic arguments. Murder or privacy. Pain has nothing to do with it.

    Murder vs. Convenience and selfishness...

    Doesn't change my mind.

    If pain were the issue, would it not be wrong to kill a man painlessly?
