Daniel and Taylor Mahaffey were 20 weeks pregnant and desperately wanted their child, but when doctors informed them a complication meant the fetus had no chance of survival, they just wanted their baby’s suffering to end. Yet because of their state’s “fetal pain” law, the married Texans say they were forced to endure a stillbirth and wait as their baby slowly died in utero.It took four days. The details are horrifying. Please remember them the next time the sanctimonious haters at the Family Council say they don't believe in punishing women. The statutes are full of acts punishing women.
