If God punished Eve with painful childbirth, why do animals feel pain too?

by Staff writer

According to the Bible, a woman’s pain during childbirth is part of the suffering brought into the world through sin.

As a direct result of the original sin, Adam, Eve, and the serpent were all cursed in one way or another.

Genesis 3:16 lists one of the judgments for Eve’s sin as pain in childbirth:

“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children.”

Now since God punished Eve with painful childbirth because of her disobedience, why then do animals feel pain during childbirth too?
