According to Catholic World News…
A bill before the New York Legislature would make it illegal for crisis pregnancy centers to refer pregnant women for ultrasounds.
This is extremely chilling for those working the front on the abortion war.
According to the April issue of Catholic World Report magazine, a study carried out at a network of crisis pregnancy centers in Massachusetts found that the percentage of women contemplating abortion who chose to continue their pregnancies jumped from 33 percent to 65 percent if ultrasounds were offered. Overall, when including missed diagnoses of miscarriage– which were found with the ultrasound– the percentage of women choosing not to have an abortion for any reason jumped from 39 percent to over 75 percent.
In other words if you prove that it’s a baby, the maternal instinct will kick in. I am still flabbergasted at the other 25% though.
This is still a huge free speech issue. Also included in the article was the reasoning that if too many ultrasounds are harmful to the health of the child and mother…
Well what the hell is an abortion then? Mildly irritating?
