I'll be Sandra
I wouldn't care. If I never notice it, how could I? Future me would not care either, unless some idea of the afterlife were to be true. And maybe I wouldn't in that scenario either. It would be rather presumptuous to assume what states of being we are in after death. I have no recollection of it either.
Besides, your questions are about fully sentient, adult human beings. Foetuses don't have thoughts or nerve endings. Their potential suffering is nothing compared to the suffering of a living breathing human being, if there is any at all.
