Professor John Robertson, Vinson & Elkins Chair in Law, discusses the scientific and constitutional issues at play in the laws passed by ten states and now being considered in Texas to ban abortions after 20 weeks because of the scientifically controversial claim that fetuses are then capable of feeing pain.

The article “Fetal Pain Abortion Bans: the Scientific and Constitutional Controversy,” appeared in the Austin American Statesman on June 23, 2013.
