Series: LFL National Conference

Much of the discussion about abortion in recent years has involved the question of whether the unborn child is capable of feeling pain. This human perspective is a helpful argument for protecting unborn children from the suffering inflicted by abortion techniques. The evidence provided by the fetus itself leaves little doubt as to the sensitivity of the developing human to its environment. We have a duty as a civil society to protect these helpless babies from harm.

Dr. Sheila Page is board certified in neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative therapy. She treats a wide spectrum of patients from the newborn to the elderly, including patients with irreversible and terminal illness. Dr. Page has a special interest in children with disabilities, particularly those whose burden of care is difficult and who have been given little hope for a better quality of life. “The care and protection of the most vulnerable among us is a responsibility I take personally. I am especially interested in treating difficult illnesses, offering a chance for healing and comfort to those who have lost hope. I am a strong advocate of fostering the individual doctor-patient relationship and preserving the integrity of medicine.”
