fetus feel pain during an abortion?

This is one of the most asked questions, by everyone that
  • Does a fetus feel pain during abortion?
  • Can we consider a fetus as living?
  • Can we regard the fetus as a parasite?
  • Does a fetus have consciousness?
but first of all, we have to know.....

what is a fetus?

A fetus is an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind of an animal that develops from an embryo.

The baby is considered as a fetus at the end of the eighth week after conception when the major structures have formed until birth. The fetus is characterized by the presence of all the major organs of the body which is functional.

A baby-to-be isn’t considered a fetus until the 9th week after conception, or week 11 after your last menstrual period (LMP).
The embryonic period is all about the formation of important systems of the body. Think of it as your baby’s basic foundation and framework.

The fetal period, on the other hand, is more about growth and development so your baby can survive in the outside world.
The pregnancy starts from the first day of your last menstrual period. This is called the 'menstrual age' and is about two weeks ahead of when conception occurs.

Gestational age is the number of weeks that have passed since the first day of a woman's last normal menstrual period. Thus, a full-term pregnancy would be 40 weeks long.

Gestational age is not the same thing as conceptional age. Conceptional age is how much time has passed since the actual conception (fertilization). Conception cannot take place until you ovulate, and that typically happens about 14 days after the start of your monthly period.

So, conceptional age will always be about 14 days younger than gestational age. The average length of a full-term pregnancy is about 280 days or 40 gestational weeks from the first day of the last period. The average length of a pregnancy from the time of conception is about 266 days or 38 conceptional weeks from the day of conception.

Does a fetus feel pain during an abortion?

Yes, of course, they do......
People want to believe the lies spewed by pro-abortion activists about the fetus being just a blob of cells. Far from it, just 18-22 days after conception the heart starts beating, for that to happen, there has to be a brain and central nervous system to control the heart and other organs.

Pain can be felt at 8 weeks. You can watch an abortion on ultrasound and see the baby move away from the abortionist’s tools, literally fighting for her life.

There is a movie called “Unplanned” based on the book of the same name by former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson that will feature footage of this for all to see. Many hearts and minds will be changed as to what abortion is.

Can we regard the fetus as a parasite?

1. Species:

  1.  The parasite organism is of one species, and it lives in or on a host organism of another species.
  2.  A fetus is of the same species, and it lives cloistered in the uterus.

2. Origins:

  1.  The parasite is an active invader, it comes from an entirely outside source
  2.  The fetus is formed from two gametes - one of them an inside source (except maybe in IVF)

3. Nourishment:

  1.  A parasite makes direct contact with the host’s tissues. Let it be the blood, like some microorganisms and viruses, let it be with hooks, teeth, suckers directly in the skin, liver, guts.
  2.  A fetus is isolated by the amniotic sac and makes indirect contact with the mother via the placenta and umbilical cord.

4. Time:

  1.  The parasite, after a successful invasion, will remain an indefinite amount of time, even until the death of the host or itself.
  2.  The fetus will stay only a finite amount of time in the mother

5. Reproduction:

  1.  The parasite isn’t essential to the host’s reproduction
  2.  The fetus is the result of a successful reproduction

Does a fetus have consciousness?

It depends upon the stage.
Until about 8 weeks, the fetus has little to no brain cells. They start developing a primitive and simple pathway by around 8 weeks old. When the fetus is 12 weeks old, reflexes start to develop - this is when most of the brain pathways are fully formed.

It is uncertain if the fetus is conscious then. It’s probably not conscious as a human, only as conscious as an insect. It’s certain that they can’t think nor be awake (“conscious”) at this stage.

At about 14 weeks, the brain is now starting to work. It is speculated that the fetus can feel pain at this age, and they can certainly control their tiny bodies, including many simple functions such as sucking their thumbs and making facial expressions.

At 16 weeks old, the fetus can react to an external stimulus, such as changing their position if provided or if a light is shone into their eyes.

At 18 weeks, the nervous system is quite matured - they even have a myelin sheet on their nerves. At 20 weeks, they can listen to sounds and have their full senses developed - I would say that by this, they might have sporadic episodes of being fully conscious - pretty much like any other mammal, but not necessarily self-aware.

They won’t be self-aware until they are about 6 months old (after birth).

At 25 weeks old, the fetus can open their eyes and their lungs are working fully, even though they are not ready to breathe yet.

At 27 weeks, the fetus is waking up and sleeping on a regular schedule, so you can consider them fully conscious.

From 30 weeks up, the fetus is pretty much fully formed, and they are now gaining weight and strength to survive when born.

fetuses at 26+ weeks can be born, albeit extremely premature. This is a very risky thing, but they are capable of surviving outside of the womb with extreme intensive care.

If your question is “can fetus remember a thing in the womb” - the answer is probably no. They don’t have much in terms of brain development that allow them to keep memories for the long term.

Babies up until 6 months are more reactive than anything else.

They are conscious in the sense that they are awake and respond to their environment as soon as their brain is sufficiently developed - about 20 weeks or so. Before that, they exist but are not exactly conscious.

When to plan for pregnancy?

Before planning for pregnancy (having a child)..........

Think about the lifestyle factors that might affect your ability to get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy. This applies to both males and female but a female must take care of her health in a conscious way.

  1. If you smoke, get advice about stopping.
  2. Maintain your weight
  3. Take a balanced diet.
  4. You should avoid drinking alcohol if you are pregnant or trying to conceive. If you do choose to drink, then protect your baby by drinking no more than one to two units of alcohol once or twice a week and don’t get drunk, but we will prefer to stop drinking.
  5. Take 400 micrograms of folic acid a day. This should be continued until you are 12 weeks pregnant
  6. If you have a health condition, for example (mental health problems, diabetes or a family history of any inherited diseases) talk to your GP or a specialist before you try to get pregnant.

Process of getting pregnant

reproduction, fertilization, the process of attaining pregnancy


Conception is the process that begins with the fertilization of an egg and ends with the implantation of an egg into a woman’s uterus.


When a woman conceives around the time when she is about to ovulate, that is, when an egg (OVUM) has been released from one of her ovaries into one of her fallopian tubes.


During sexual intercourse, sperm are ejaculated from a man’s penis into a woman’s vagina. In one ejaculation there may be more than 300 million sperm.

Most of the sperm leak out of the vagina but some begin to swim up through the cervix. When a woman is ovulating, the mucus in the cervix is thinner than usual to let sperm pass through more easily. Sperm swim into the uterus and the fallopian tubes. Fertilization takes place if a sperm joins with an egg and fertilizes it.


During the week after fertilization, the fertilized egg (which is now an embryo) moves slowly down the fallopian tube and into the uterus. It is already growing.

The embryo attaches itself firmly to the specially thickened uterus lining. This is called implantation. Hormones released by the embryonic tissue prevent the uterus lining from being shed. This is why women miss their periods when they are pregnant.

In humans, implantation of a fertilized ovum is most likely to occur around nine days after ovulation; however, this can range between six and 12 days.

Pregnancy can not be maintained without successful implantation & sufficient rise in the level of progesterone hormone because of Progesterone causes the uterine lining or endometrium to thicken to maintain pregnancy.

The best time of getting pregnant is during the time of ovulation which is about 14 days after the first day of your last period.

Here is a way by which we can calculate implantation day

menstrual cycle, 28 day cycle, calculation of ovulation
menstrual cycle, 28-day cycle, calculation of ovulation

If a woman is having 28 days cycle she can roughly calculate the implantation day

If you know the date you ovulated, add 9 days
Ovulation date + 9 days =Implantation date.

If you know the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP), add 23* days.

Date of last menstrual period + 23 days =Implantation date.

 ***23 days = 14 (average number of days between LMP and ovulation ) + 9 (average number of days between ovulation and implantation)
