Enquanto no Brasil procura-se “legalizar” o aborto via Judiciário, nos EUA há mostras de uma tendência contrária à amplitude do aborto em nível nacional, através de legislação. Inclusive, reconhecendo que o feto pode sentir dor.

LAS VEGAS — Following a national trend of new get-tough abortion legislation, Arizona has passed a law that severely restricts the procedure, banning most abortions after 20 weeks — setting the stage for another showdown between social conservatives and women’s rights groups.
With GOP Gov. Jan Brewer’s signature on the Republication-sponsored legislation, Arizona took a stand on an issue that could become fodder during this year’s presidential campaign. Proponents say the law protects fetuses, which they say can feel pain after five months of development.
