No reason to challenge abortion limit25th June 2010
The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists' review of the abortion limit has found there is no new evidence to show foetuses feel pain in the womb before 24 weeks.
The review, which examined whether a foetus can experience pain, found that foetuses are "undeveloped and sedated" with brain connections not fully formed, and the environment of the womb creates a state of induced sleep, like unconsciousness. However, anti-abortion campaigners are likely to challenge the reports.
