Neonatologist testifies about fetal pain

Dr. Colleen A Malloy, Assistant professor, division of neonatology at Northwestern University testified before the House Judiciary Committee in June 2012, and said:

“[T]hus, the difference between fetal and neonatal pain is simply the locale in which the pain occurs. I could never imagine subjecting my tiny patients to horrific procedures such as those that involve limb detachment or cardiac injection.”
