The leftists are spinning away because they are afraid that if too many women see ultrasounds, the PP Mengele-cult won't rake in as many big bucks as before.

So allowing a woman to have the most information about what is going to happen to her during a medical procedure is “rape”? For people who believe in “choice”, they sure don’t think that an informed choice is a good one.

Wow, women who will let just about anything else be inserted up into them now balk against a small probe?

However, I wonder they can’t they just do typical non-invasive ultrasounds?

At any rate, I find it a waste of taxpayer dollars. These demonettes are going to kill their kids no matter what you tell or show them. They know damn well what they’re doing. Why show them, and then sit back and watch while they kill their children anyway. This just makes them more defiant over it.

The feminist play the rape card the way blacks play the race card.
It's a hot button word that trumps any further discussion and makes them the automatic winner.

Yep. Not to mention that they pride themselves on supposedly being the "Party of Science"...

I don’t agree... it seems that the more aware a person is as to exactly what is happening, the less likely they are to abort. I’m sure a certain percentage will still murder her own child, but I’m even more certain that another percentage will change her mind. And even one child saved is worth the cost.

She is nuts.That type of ultra sound is only used in high risk pregnancies in the very first few weeks.After about the time the woman would miss her first period they are no longer used except again in high risk and if they can’t find the baby as happens sometimes with a molar pregnancy or Blighted Ovum.

There are a lot of parallels between this issue and photo ID for voting.

The left doesn't want people identified. They prefer the cover of anonymity for their crimes.

Because ever since Roe v. Wade, the feminists have been telling women that an embryo is just a clump of cells, that until the second trimester, the fetus is totally unconscious.

This story demonstrates that the left and Planned Parenthood have no interest in reducing the number of abortions. Therefore, it can be correctly stated definitively that the political Left in this country is NOT “pro choice”, but “pro abortion”!

I wonder if she gets upset about the Obama policy that gave me a nearly transvaginal procedure at the Tampa Int’l airport from the TSA. The Fascist Left is mentally warped.

Behar, in an almost unique instance of honesty out of a leftist, stated the honest reason that they are outraged by this requirement -

it’s making someone face something they’ve already decided they don’t want to have to deal with.

Left unstated was the “issue” that they don’t want to deal with - the humanity of the “fetus” and the subsequent acknowledgement that terminating it is murder.

The abortion issue is 1% about future abortions
and 99% about not pointing out to those that have had abortions that they murdered a baby.

Maybe we can just pretend that the ultrasound is the DUE PROCESS that must happen before the baby is deprived of his life. How about that?

Conservatism is about individual rights. You know the ones outlined in the Constitution; Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are doing all we can to PROTECT the right of LIFE of an unborn child. Sorry if you have to have an ultrasound before you kill your baby.

We can’t overturn Roe VS. Wade right this second but we can have informed consent. Don’t believe the left. An abdominal ultrasound is all that will be needed. She will hear the heartbeat and she will know.

A woman should know that she has been lied to her entire life before she takes the life of her unborn child. I have friends that believed the lie that there was nothing there but a clump of cells. When they found out the truth they spiraled out of control. Better to be informed before hand and live with the consequences of your INFORMED decisions.

The whole issue here is to maintain the ability to deny the fact that the “fetus” IS a “life”.

And the issue is being driven not so much by those who think they might “need” an abortion in the future as it is driven by those that have had an abortion and seek to continue to deny the truth of what they did.

Oh. The famous liberal fall back position. It’s for the children!!!!!

For this same reason a school official can search through a child’s lunch box, or Michele Obama can dictate carrots and push-ups and a bureaucrat forces someone to buy insurance.....

As long as you say its for the children everything is ok.

“Maybe we can just pretend that the ultrasound is the DUE PROCESS “ You have to do a whole lot of pretending to turn this into small government conservatism. Liberals demand that we pay to provided free care, including prenatal care and we, with good reason, object.

You demand that this sort of care be forced on a woman without her consent and you want to call it conservative- no conservatism I’ve ever heard of.

Perhaps the problem comes from your not having a very good handle on the US Constitution. TO begin with “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

I think you are on the wrong site newbie. This a 100% PRO LIFE, PRO GOD website.

The last time I looked, the children didn’t have a fundamental right to chicken nuggets for lunch but they DO have a fundamental GOD-given right to LIFE. And it is the role of government to secure that right for them although at present the government is not only irresponsible, it is complicit.

The right of life is the most fundamental of all rights. Without life, you have no other rights.

You are correct in one thing. It does take a whole lot of pretending to even consider an ultrasound meeting the demand of due process before an individual life can be taken.

In fact, the ONLY argument that can be made for an abortion is if the pregnancy is threatening the life of the mother, iow if the baby is infringing upon the mother’s right to life.

In my haste I made a mistake. I did post that the rights were outlined in the Constitution instead of the Declaration of Independence. I know what our founding documents say and have studied them intently. I am restudying them right now with my children.
But your ad hominen attack is duly noted. Are you denying the fact that we have a fundamental right to life in this country?

So your position on the issue is that the fundamental right of a child to live is trumped by the women’s ‘right’ to not be inconvienced with a simple ultrasound?

You are definitely on the wrong site!

Yes, they don’t want the mother to know. Many women would make a very different decision if she knew the truth. Some would not.

Of course according to elvis-lives, fighting for a child’s fundamental right to life is no different than demanding that they eat chicken nuggets from the cafeteria instead of turkey sandwiches packed from home.

Big government is big government. Intrusion is intrusion. If it’s not in the Constitution, the Gov’t has no role in it and I am not for expanding the role of gov’t.

Supporting life as an individual and trying to convince women not to have abortions, particularly offering alternatives-adoption is admiable, and conservative. Getting the government to force the outcome you want is liberalism.

No Middle ground.

Abortion is legal. If you want to change the laws, that is what the Constitution would have us do. Not do some “end around” by the Government.

You want to change the laws, I’ll be for that. I’ll vote for candidates who will do so, but I won’t support intrusions to try to get that result a different way- that is what the libs do.

If you think you will stop abortions by making it illegal you are wrong and truthfully, lazy. As soon as you make abortion illegal it will be 10 seconds before home clinics open and homeabortion kits are for sale on-line. You have to change hearts to stop abortion and this big gov’t intrusion is not the way.

It also gives the libs cover when they want to impose themselves onus outside of the Constitution.

The question is not “should abortion be legal?” The question should be, “should abortion take place?”

The answer to the second question is NO.

How do we get there? If you think you get there by making it illegal, you are wrong. You will only make abortion as rare as drinking during prohibition or smoking pot now. We can pass laws and pat each other on the back while abortions still take place, or we can work on changing hearts and really stop abortions.

You answer like a politician. But you have shown your hand. It is clear that you think the government has no business making laws to protect the fundamental rights of it’s smallest citizens. You are pro choice. Let the woman decide. Let us persuade her with our words but not with laws.

The ONLY difference in killing a child in the womb and killing him or her minutes after birth is the legality. One is called abortion and the other murder. Why are you okay with allowing the woman to choose one and not the other?

Let’s suppose that it was legal for your (hypothetical) daughter to take your 1 month old granddaughter to the doctor and have her ‘put to sleep’. Would you try to convince her by your words while saying the government shouldn’t be involved? Would you be against ANY intrusion imposed by government to make your daughter stop and think about her decision? I think not!

From your posts, it is clear that you do not consider a baby in the womb as being a human worthy of equal protection under the law; the same protection that you enjoy. If you did, you would understand that this isn’t about big government intrusion but protection of rights which IS the proper role of government.

We should change hearts and laws. Murder is illegal but murders still take place. Maybe we should just make it legal, safe and rare.

There is a purpose for making abortion illegal. It is the proper role of government to secure our rights for us.

Do you think a baby in the womb is a human being? Do you think human beings have fundamental God given rights? Do you think the proper role of government is to secure our God given rights?
I answer yes to them all.
Therefore a baby in the womb is a human being with a fundamental God given right to life that should be protected by the government.
Please try to refute that!

There is no such thing as a “smallest citizen”. There are only citizens, and all are equal under the law.

The Constitution does not recognize a fetus as a citizen. You want to work to change this, fine. Then yoyu will have a solid footing for making abortion illegal, but what I am saying is that is taking the long, long, long way around.

If you change hearts so that people don’t seek out abortions there will be none, regardless if they are legal. That’s reality.

Am I in favor of women making their own decisions- HELL YES!!! I am a conservative!!! I am also a Catholic, so I work to change hearts so if they choose to bring the child into the world- nothing to do with GOVERNMENT!!!!

Abortion should be illegal as it was for years.

It's not big government to keep murder illegal. It's big government to sanction certain forms of murder so that certain groups of people can be killed without consequence or repercussion, by certain other groups of people.

All forms of murder need to be kept illegal.

“The Constitution does not recognize a fetus as a citizen”

Oh wow! You said all I need to know. Fetus is a word used to describe the stage of development of a human being. It has been co-opted by the left to dehumanize a baby in the womb. Your use of ‘fetus’ in that sentence is very telling.

The Constitution also does not specifically name an infant, toddler, or adolescent. You will notice that it does provide liberty for them AND their posterity. What is a baby in the womb except for the posterity of our nation?

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and OUR POSTERITY, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
