Holes found in “study” claiming ultrasounds don’t stop abortion

by Kelli [A recent] study… claimed that the vast majority (over 95%) of women who elected to see the sonogram (they had a choice whether or not to see it) chose to have abortions anyway. This seems to fly in the face of everything that pro-lifers have experienced…. One of my best friends… once drove […]

  • Jivin Jehoshaphat says abortion advocates can’t have it both ways when it comes to a new ultrasound study that purports to show how few women change their minds about abortion after viewing a sonogram. So, is viewing a sonogram inconsequential, or is it still an “undue emotional burden”?

    If they’re not going to change their mind then why is it a undue emotional burden? It’s not a physical burden because they already receive the ultrasound because as the first line (!) of the study’s abstract notes ultrasounds [are] a “routine part of preprocedure abortion care.”

Charles Krauthammer: Young people permissive, but not on abortion

by Kelli Bill O’Reilly: But it’s a more permissive culture, you know… unfettered abortion, OK, for any reason, up until the birth process. There’s a struggle. And the struggle is between, usually, people of faith and the secular progressives. And the secular progressives have the media in their pocket, so they’re powerful. Charles Krauthammer: Look… […]

If amniocentesis frightens baby, what does abortion do?

imageby Sarah Cleveland

Shortly after graduating from college and obtaining my board certification to become a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer nearly 10 years ago, I was asked to fill in for a tech at a nearby OB/GYN office. I was honored by the request and accepted the offer.

When I arrived to work, I noticed there was an amniocentesis scheduled that afternoon. (In short, an amnio is a quick procedure that samples the fluid surrounding a baby in utero for further testing on the pregnancy.) And although I had assisted in dozens of procedures during clinical rotations in college, I had never before assisted with a live amniocentesis. And I was nervous about doing it. I knew the risks to the baby and momma (increased risk of miscarriage and uterine infection, albeit still low).

But what I didn’t anticipate was what I was actually going to see on the screen.

Powers: Maybe the real bullies are women like Wendy Davis

One can assume I am also not the only woman in America who is really tiring of the Wendys of the world claiming to represent “women’s rights” in their quest to mainstream a medical procedure — elective late-term abortion — that most of the civilized world finds barbaric and abhorrent. In many European countries, you […]

  • Wesley J. Smith says that laws dealing with Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) “are increasingly authorizing doctors to unilaterally overturn surrogate wishes and patient advance directives….”

    The laws vary from state to state, but in Vermont and Maryland, a physician can place a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order on a patient’s chart without the consent of the patient or designated patient advocate. Smith writes:

    Not coincidentally, Vermont has a single payer healthcare plan it can’t pay for. Some have called for the cost savings to come from assisted suicide legalization – now done – and healthcare rationing.

Warning to pregnant pro-choicers: Stop treating fetuses like people

But if you really want to out-pregnant all the rest, the Daily has your trend: Pregnant woman are Photoshopping sonograms onto their naked stomach glamour-shots. (Picture Demi Moore’s famous and oft-repeated Vanity Fair cover pose. Now picture Demi’s smooth and tanned belly with a fetus on it.)…

WashPo blogger: Informed consent before abortion “sexist” because “father of the fetus” doesn’t participate

Experts agree that there’s usually no medical reason for an ultrasound in the first trimester of a pregnancy. Rather, such a requirement is a naked psychological ploy to assault the mother with feelings of guilt and play on her emotions to stop her from going not go through [sic] the procedure. Even though abortion is […]
