Human foetus feels no pain before 24 weeks, study says

A review of scientific evidence published today showed that the human fetus feels no pain at 24 weeks.

In 2008, efforts in the Commons to reduce abortion limits to 22 or 20 weeks were defeated. No doubt this evidence will hamper pro – life campaigners' efforts for an early return to this topic.

Now does this mean that pro-choice campaigners have a stronger case?

Arguing for abortion on the bases of a lack of pain is ridiculous. As it would logically follow that one could kill a dependent OAP, who due to an illness affecting the nervous system, had an inability to feel pain. The question is not about pain, the question is whether the fetus before 24 weeks is human or not.

Bite size thoughts - Forgetfulness

Time to time, for a fleeting moment my mind escapes the shackles of this world and the haunting of death grabs me.

It is not death that causes me pain and anxiety. Rather, that I forgot that one day it will come.

Douglas Murray attacks the 'Inspired by Mohammed' campaign'.

Douglas Murray - At it again.

Only a few days after the launch of the "Inspired By Muhammed Campaign" Our good old friend Douglas Murray has already begun his onslaught- via his article published in the Telegraph “Mohammed believed in women's rights, Oh, really?"

The campaign portrays many positive messages about the rights of women which were inspired by the Prophet Muhammad. Murray cannot help but try to sully this positive message by making reference to Aisha's marriage to Muhammed (pbuh). Well he'll have to try a lot harder than that, that's for sure. One wonders why Murray remains so blinded by his own pointless rhetoric, that he cannot even begin to appreciate the fact that Muhammed (pubh) spoke out for women’s rights. This is clear by virtue of the fact that he vehemently attacked an established tradition of burying female infants alive. The Prophet also condemned and reformed many other traditions emanating from pre-Islamic Arab society, in their mistreatment of women.

The centre for Social Cohesion which studies radicalisation and extremism in Britain would surely encourage such a campaign. Does Murray not want more Muslims to engage in portraying a positive message of Islam? Clearly not. His intentions? Well it becomes apparent that Murray just does not like Islam and cannot stand positive representations of Islam in any shape or form. Is Douglas Murray inspired by a hatred of Islam ?
