Wisconsin Governor Vetoes Bill Requiring Doctors to Tell Women a Fetus Could Suffer Pain
Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle vetoed a Republican-backed bill Friday that would have forced doctors to tell women seeking an abortion after their fifth month of pregnancy that the fetus could suffer pain. When a fetus can feel pain is debated in the medical community. The Democratic governor said that there is no evidence conclusively proving when a fetus can feel pain, and the state Legislature should not be allowed to decide what is a scientific fact.
