Important New Report Published Which Reviews The Evidence On Whether The Foetus – The Child In The Womb – Can Feel Pain

A report, chaired by Fiona, was published yesterday which reviewed the evidence on whether the foetus - the child in the womb - can feel pain.

The report, titled 'Foetal Sentience & Pain: An Evidence Review' from the All Party Parliamentary Pro Life Group, which Fiona chairs, set out to review the developing scientific evidence of how foetuses develop in the womb, how the latest evidence correlates with the views of the Science and Technology Committee in 2007 and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in 2010, and whether there can be improvements in patient care as a result of the latest evidence.
