Publication: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (Focus on the Family, Colorado Springs, CO), 2010

Why has a recent review stated that a fetus cannot sense pain until 29 weeks? What are the implications of this review for child-centred paediatric medicine?

Summary: "Abby Johnson made a courageous decision when she walked away from her job as the director of a key Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas and walked into the office of the Coalition for Life down the street. Yet that turning point was preceded by years of searching – and a moment of pure awakening. Little did she know that her one decision would turn into a national news story or that she'd immediately go from being a leader for Planned Parenthood to being a very public figure in the right-to-life debate. Now in Unplanned, the documentary based on her sensational book of the same title, Abby takes you back to the Planned Parenthood clinic where she worked for years as a pro-choice advocate. You'll hear directly from Abby how a few moments in a room of that same clinic changed her perspective, and her life, forever.
