Fetal Pain, Abortion, Viability, and the Constitution

Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics 39 (2):235-242 (2011)
Abstract
In early 2010, the Nebraska state legislature passed a new abortion restricting law asserting a new, compelling state interest in preventing fetal pain. In this article, we review existing constitutional abortion doctrine and note difficulties presented by persistent legal attention to a socially derived viability construct. We then offer a substantive biological, ethical, and legal critique of the new fetal pain rationale
