For those of you pro-lifers who are like YAY Texas makes them see an ultrasound

Posted by   + Show Post

I have a friend who lives in Texas. She had an abortion recentally. Basically, this ultrasound shit is a deterrant. It is meant to deter women from even thinking of an abortion. But if they can get over the fear of seeing the ultrasound and having it explained, it doesn't happen. My friend's doctor told her not to worry, the nurse basically told her she was fully allowed to place her hands over her ears, to close her eyes the entire time, and the ultrasound tech spoke so low, she didn't hear a thing. She was told that most of the doctors are doing the same thing, that this is more of a deterrant, but it doesn't truly happen. Go Texas.

I am pro-choice, so I am VERY happy that is what most of them are doing. :)

eye rollingLOL. Go pro-lifers! After all you've changed NOTHING. Doctors who dont agree with abortion would never perform one anyway, and the ones who do agree say slap your hands over your ears and close your eyes. LOL! :)

I had one and I don't regret it. I was happy I was relieved of a pregnancy and another responsibility. You can't generalize.

Exactly! Since when do "womens rights" translate to "close your eyes and ears, be ignorant while you make decisions!" half (ok probably more, I'm just making sure I'm not exaggerating) of the women I know who aborted-regret it. Why? Because they made the decision without actually SEEING it. After the fact there was depression, and resentment. Even my friend who doesn't regret it, regrets that she didn't look into it more! This is coming from a totally pro choice woman who encouraged two of her friends to abort pregnancies. One of them became suicidal afterward because she looked into abortion more thoroughly AFTER the fact and wasn't comfortable with it. Ladies, if we want to make decisions, we shouldn't do it while ignoring the facts. If a woman wants an abortion and feels good with it, an ultrasound won't change that. It will only deter the ones who aren't comfortable with it, and would probably regret and suffer mentally from following through uneducated/informed.

I don't see why this is an infringement of a women's rights. She can still have her abortion but she will be able to make a more educated decision hopefully.

I had 2. And I have not lost 1 night of sleep over either one. Don't want to go into reasons or what happened, but I'm seriously good with my decisions.

i dont see why anyone would go in for ANY procedure and act like a liitle child and put their hands over their ears and close their eyes...why not be informed? especially if something happens...and it does...they can say "well you were informed of that but chose not to hear it" this is completely rediculous!

You are right....why should a woman have to look at the baby she is about to kill?  She should be able to just get rid of the disgusting hinderance to her life and move on as if nothing ever happened!

Sure. Most common excuse is faulty birth control.

She had a mirena. Oh wow, look at that, she WAS trying to prevent.


Quoting Anonymous:

You know what does have a purpose? CONTRACEPTIVES. Pregnancy is 100% preventable. The majority of hospitals even give emergency contraceptives to rape victims.



Quoting endoftheworld:


Again, unless you have some serious mental disorder, women know what abortions are and what they do. This is completely unneccessary and meant as nothing more than a scare tactic, and a guilt trip. It serves no purpose.



Quoting Anonymous:

It isn't. They just don't want to have to see a healthy-growing baby before they kill it.

Because we all know what abortion is, what it does, what happens, what we are carrying, etc. We aren't stupid. Do you truly believe, other than a young child, or a woman with severe mental disorders, that all other women don't know what is happening?
