MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin doesn’t seem terribly concerned with the question of whether infants being aborted can feel pain.
In an interview this morning, after Melvin said the evidence that the unborn feel pain before the third trimester is “limited,” Representative Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.) explained to Melvin that the bill dealt with pregnancies at the 20th week or later, and went on to liken unborn infants at this developmental stage to “tiny little preemies” in a neonatal unit who respond to “the pricks and the prods and the pain.” She also pointed out that surgeons operating on fetuses use anesthesia. Melvin interrupted her explanation to say, “I don’t want to get bogged down” with the issue. “I think a great deal of people would agree that science and that public opinion is on your side,” he said, before moving to another topic.

Politisite was a pioneer in internet political news gathering and dissemination. Politisite came live in early 1998 and become the first internet only news source to cover local, state, and national political campaigns, debates and elections. Before there were the terms Blog, Blogger, New Media, or Crowd-sourcing, before Talking Points Memo (2000), Daily Kos (2002), the Huffington Post (2005), or Politico (2006), Politisite was developing what has become the standard in political news coverage long before most political sites were even conceived. The Name ‘Politisite” simply means Political Website.
