Why are there people who say it doesn't matter if babies feel pain because they won't remember?

It seems they actually just think babies aren't conscious and therefore CAN'T feel pain, but they don't realize it.

Or do they actually think people don't mind feeling pain?

    Are we talking about circumcision? Or abortion? People believe what they want to believe. There is debate about whether men somehow remember being circumcised as babies, or even the shock of emerging from a dark womb into a noisy, brightly and artificially lit delivery room. Medically, it seems that a "cold turkey" circumcision is safer for an infant than injecting a painkiller. As for abortion, all living creatures resist dying.

    Responsible people don't say that.
