Ana-Maria Tudor says she would not have undergone an abortion at 23 weeks if she knew her unborn child could feel pain.

"She's asking that our national body that advises doctors and health professionals on clinical guidelines that it should update its guidelines to make sure that those professionals provide (women) appropriate and accurate information when they are considering having an abortion," Paul Conrathe, Tudor's attorney, told EWTN Pro-Life Weekly.

Those guidelines currently do not require women to be told the fetus can feel pain.

"I did not find out a baby at 23 weeks might be able to feel pain until afterwards," said Tudor in remarks published by The Daily Mail. "It made me feel awful and I now deeply regret my decision."

According to the news publication, the pregnancy was a surprise because Tudor had medical problems that doctors said would prevent her from conceiving. Because of this, Tudor did not have a pregnancy test until she was five months' pregnant.

"This is a landmark case,” remarks James Mildred of the group Christian Action, Research, and Education. “Ms. Tudor is showing great courage in being willing to challenge the current consensus.”

Mildred says the United Kingdom is known for its animal cruelty laws, which consider the pain of animals, while ignoring the pain of the unborn.
