Pro-lifers shed light on controversial abortion research
Researchers at the University of Hawaii are conducting gruesome research to determine how much women bleed during a second-trimester abortion.
Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America says the organization held a protest rally demanding answers, including who is paying for the research.
Unborn babies, killed in the womb in the second semester, feel "excruciating pain," she says. Hawkins argues that the younger girls recruited for the research are likely victims of a crime. The age of consent is higher than 14 in Hawaii, she notes, so the girls are, at a minimum, victims of statutory rape.
