so weird. i wouldn't want to be awake for that procedure. i guess if i chose to, it would piss me off that i wouldn't have the choice, but then, where i live they knock you out for some pretty simple procedures. i mean they'll put you under general for an abortion at 12 weeks, they don't even ask or inform you of a choice.
i guess adding the whole 'fetal pain' thing adds to the guilt of a woman, which is a quite a bit of a shitty thing to do so i understand the outrage. it's passive aggressive, they could just say yeah we want to use anesthesia because doing this at past 20 weeks is a bit more uncomfortable than getting a colonsocopy.
