I think the key word here is CAN, not that they HAVE too. I am pro life except for extreme circumstances. I can't imagine WANTING to see the u/s before I choose too or have too kill the baby! Do you think that many women would take advantage of this? and were Dr's preventing this before?

I am all for hoping that perhaps it might sway her decision to kill her child

Experts say you should wait 24 hours before going through with a major decision. It is suggested we use this rule all the time with things we want to purchase. I would think it would be even more important here.
My answer to the question: They should require the ultrasound, listening to the heartbeat and a 24 hour wait. Abortion is murder.

gd...due to m/c I had an u/s at 6 weeks...SIX weeks.....and while the baby did not resemble a baby or a peanut, more like a tiny blobby spot, it a had VERY distinct, very STRONG, heartbeat. As a matter of fact that's how I knew where the baby was in all that grain, that steady HEARTBEAT! I think too many women are too casual, thinking "meh it's only 6 weeks or 8 weeks...no biggie". But I am with November, I think the outlook changes when you realize you are stopping a HEARTBEAT!
