The bill will require abortion providers to notify a woman who is seeking abortion 20-weeks after fertilization, of the growing medical evidence that the unborn child in her womb can feel severe and extreme pain during an abortion procedure. If the woman continue with the abortion procedure after being given this information, she would be offered anesthesia for the unborn child in order to lessen --to some degree--the pain that would be experienced by the unborn child.
