I think my brain just broke.

"The measure would require physicians to tell women seeking abortions at 20 weeks' gestation or later that their fetuses could feel pain and offer to deliver anesthesia "directly to the pain-capable unborn child.""

Excerpt from this article.

Superbeck's comment - so does this mean the 'pain-capable' unborn child is also 'life-capable'? I don't know of anything that's not alive that can feel pain. (Yes, yes, what is pain? neuro-pathways, etc. etc. this type of discussion intrigues me.)

The above article stemmed from this one in the NY Times which is probably a lot easier to read and understand.
