The baby isn’t conscious and doesn’t feel pain so what’s the problem in getting rid of it?

Let’s suppose this is true, that the early embryo or foetus doesn’t feel pain (though there is evidence to the contrary). Is that a legitimate justification for allowing the killing of an unborn child? Are you permitted to plunge a knife into the heart of someone who is sleeping just because they won’t feel the pain?

Of course I hope your answer is “NO!” The issue here is confusing harm and hurt. If you knife someone while they are sleeping or in a coma they may not feel pain but they have certainly been harmed!!
