This is what I don't understand. If humans murder and commit violence against others regardless of caring about the fact that the victim will feel pain, then what makes these sort of people think that a woman is going to suddenly change her decision based on whether a fetus will, hypothetically, feel pain? Logic fail!

Wow, I realize that I just compared women who choose to abort with people who choose to commit violence, but it isn't meant in the usual way.
