You won't feel a thing

Katie lay in her bed, cozy and warm, wrapped in the blanket that her grandmother made for her. It was her favorite blanket and she used it whenever she wanted to feel the love that her grandmother had for her. Katie was enjoying the dream she was having. Meadows, birds, wild strawberries, her grandmother and her.

The door to Katie's room flew open with a bang that startled her awake. She blinked against the light streaming in from the hallway. Two shadows advanced on her bed. After her eyes adjusted to the light, she saw two men, dressed in suits standing over her. One of them grabbed her hands and bound them behind her while the other one bound her feet. Then the first man placed a gag in her mouth.

"You ruined my life and I just can't deal with it any more. For that, you, my dear, have to die." The voice of the second man was quiet yet forceful.

"Don't worry, sweetie," said the first man as he pulled a syringe out of his pocket. "It will all be over soon. I'll just inject this pain killer and you won't feel a thing as you die."

The following was in the news today:

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Senate has approved a bill requiring doctors to tell women about to receive an abortion that a 20-week-old fetus could experience pain and that medication is available to reduce it.
House Bill 222, sponsored by Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, is intended to make women think twice before getting an abortion and encourage those who get one to request anesthesia for the fetus.
Exceptions would be made in emergencies and doctors could tell women their opinion on whether fetuses experience pain at that stage of development.
The Senate approved the measure 22-4 on Thursday. However, it made a few changes to Wimmer's bill, and it will be sent back to the House for another vote there before it can go to the governor.

Please tell me how giving a baby a pain blocker before killing it makes it ok?
